Dear Hupy and Abraham,
Recently, you made a donation to assist St. Francis of Assisi Parish in offering a "Gospel Music Workshop" during the month of April.
I simply write to say "Thank you" for the support that you offered us. It was held here at St. Francis on Saturday, April 27th. By all accounts, it was a great success! We had 130-135 registrations, and people are already using the music and asking when we will have Mr. Rawn Harbor back again.
Mr. Harbor was an outstanding clinician and did nothing but teach music all day long. There was no concert in connection with this - simply an opportunity to learn good Gospel music. People commented that they enjoyed listening to all the voices in harmony as song after song was taught and sung. The attendees came from Catholic and non-Catholic churches, city and suburban locales, as well as young people from local high schools.
The following week Mr. Harbor sent me an email thanking us for inviting him to be our clinician. In his email he said, "Your invitation and the wonderful folk I met in Milwaukee invigorated my spirit. I am eager to work again nationally and look forward to engagements scheduled for the summer." We were truly proud to have him and to host this event for the Milwaukee community.
But it would not have been possible without your help! Thank you so very much for your support. May God bless you in your life and in your work!
Fr. Michael H. Bertram, OFM Capuchin
