General Announcements

Cardinal Ritter Jr./Sr. High School raises $2,000-plus for Riley Children’s Hospital

Cardinal Ritter Jr./Sr. High School in Indianapolis held a Dance Marathon on March 22, raising $2,046.34 to benefit Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis.

A total of 60 students participated in an evening that involved dancing, corn hole, a bounce house and a dodge ball tournament. The students surpassed their fundraising goal of $2,000.

Special visitors from Riley Children’s Hospital went to the event to share their experiences with the Cardinal Ritter students. Kerry Lynch, a Cardinal Ritter teacher and sister of a cancer victim, also invited her family to speak about the impact of the students’ event.


April 13 concert at Saint Meinrad to feature Stations of the Cross

Organist Dr. Philip Brisson, accompanied by Dr. William P. Bradford II, actor and teacher, will present the Dupré/Claudel’s “Stations of the Cross” at Saint Meinrad Archabbey Church, St. Meinrad, at 2:30 p.m. central time on April 13.

This interpretation of a traditional Lenten service sets the 14 stations to organ music intermixed with liturgical poetry. The program should last about 90 minutes.

The Dupré/Claudel version dates to the early 1930s. Marcel Dupré, a prominent organist in Paris, was asked by his professor at the Paris Conservatory of Music to read the poetic meditations on the Stations of the Cross written by Paul Claudel. Dupré would follow each station with an improvised musical piece.

The complex piece is broken into 14 sections coordinating with the 14 Stations of the Cross. First, a meditation on the station is read. Following the poetry, a musical piece is played that links to the reading.

Brisson is director of music and organist at the Catholic Cathedral of the Assumption in Louisville, Ky. He also manages the Cathedral’s Kelty Endowed Concert Series.

He has led the cathedral choir on international concert tours to England, Ireland, Germany and Austria. Last summer, he was organist in residence at Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford, England.

Bradford has been a film actor and has taught at both Trinity High School and Youth Performing Arts School in Louisville, Ky.

The program is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the Guest House and student parking lots. For more information, contact Mary Jeanne Schumacher at 812-357-6501. For updates on the day of the performance, call 812-357-6611.
