Holy Family Steel Drum Orchestra
and Children's Chorus from Antigua
Minister at Holy Angels

        August 29, 2010, was a special blessing for Holy Angels family and visitors, as we were visited by a full Steel Drum Orchestra and Children's Chorus from Holy Family Parish in Antigua, in the eastern Leeward Islands of the Caribbean. The music ministry was created by the Catholic Archbishop of Antigua to provide liturgical music for the parish. The ministry has grown to include sacred and secular music beyond the island nation, including this tour in the US. We are fortunate that our own Mr. Michael Joseph, Campus Director of Holy Angels School, has family ties to Holy Family's Parish and music ministry, and was able to bring the orchestra and chorus to Indianapolis and Holy Angels after they appeared in Chicago, Illinois and at our sister parish, St. Rita's in Indianapolis.
        The Sunday afternoon program included a program of sacred music themed to the 7 Sacraments and the Sacramentals of the Church, concluding with a breathtaking rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus. As an encore, the orchestra performed several more traditional popular songs laced with the themes of the Caribbean. We are grateful for this beautiful gift of song and spirituality, and hope our friends from Holy Family parish will return again.
