"Bishop Kevin W. Vann’s love of the piano began at age ten when he started taking lessons from his beloved aunt, Sister Mary Margaret Jones, who was a music teacher in his hometown of Springfield, Illinois. In his teenage years, an affinity for player pianos (or self-playing pianos) blossomed, along with the art of rebuilding them."

If you’re seeing this, say a prayer for your parish priest! 🙏
 
Today we celebrate the feast of St. John Vianney - patron of parish priests. St. John Vianney remained at his parish for over 40 years and transformed the lives of those around him because of his love and dedication to others.
 
For today's reflection, Fr. Martin Bui reminds us that no matter who or where you are, you can make an impact and show the love of Christ to those around you.
 
Learn more from Fr. Martin’s reflection about the life of St. John Vianney through the link in our bio.

The process of cleaning Christ Cathedral's 10,000 iconic glass panes has begun. 🧼 

A team from HSG — a waterproofing, restoration, and window cleaning company — started the painstaking task of cleaning the iconic glass panes yesterday. The job requires a tall crane and is expected to take three weeks. 

The panes were last cleaned in 2019 before the cathedral's dedication.
