Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis
Although I am baptized catholic, I usually go to church not too often. Nonetheless, I prefer to go to different churches or to a synagogue or mosque to discover something new, I went this evening to a catholic church to join the quire. It was recommended to me by my catholic raised host parents. Indeed, the people are very welcoming community. Like the church, the songs are a little bit more modern and gospel like. The head of this church is called father Gerry. He is an older wonderful smiling guy with a strong charisma. With his pictorial language he really achieves to reach the young people of the catholic student center. He has a warm smile and is also regarding technics on the same level with the students.

He has the honour to be invited to meet pope Francis in the White House, for whom I give him one of my red paper hearts.
At the end all students get together for lemonade, strawberries and ice cream around a fire. No surprise, that so many students went to the service.
Seriously, it is a wonderful community.
From now on, I will go to every sunday service and sing in the quire.
I have never went so often to the service before.
