This is both smile and face-palm inducing at the same time.
I picked this up from Church Militant.
It seems that Bishop Donald Hanchon played a ukulele in the pulpit of Assumption Grotto in Detroit during a Confirmation Mass last Tuesday.
I’ve visited Assumption Grotto quite a few times. I’ve been celebrant there a number of times for their exceptional orchestral Masses. It is a highly traditional parish with high-church liturgy and high-quality music. It is about the last place on earth that it would occur to me to see a ukulele.
The organist there, however, hurried to the aid of the bishop! He helpfully jumped in with stops pulled out to accompany the ukulele ditty. Just lending a hand, you know.
It must have been both amusing and perhaps a little awkward for everyone, especially for all ukulele fans among the young confirmands.
But wait! You can see it for yourselves over there… there’s video.
ON ANOTHER NOTE…
There is an event coming up at Assumption Grotto which, if you are anywhere in the area, you must plan to attend. HERE
My friend, Fr. Aidan Logan, from the Archdiocese for the Military Services, is giving a talk.
