More Than a Garage
Q: When is a garage not a garage?
A: When it’s a stage!
Who would have thought that a structure that accommodated our parking needs could have a completely separate use? Enter the unintended consequences of COVID. Early on in the pandemic our Music and Fine Arts singers, aching to sing safely, found a safe solution in singing outside. . . in the garage. They delighted in singing several Gregorian chants and discovered that the acoustics are incredible. And, might there be a special performance from Pure Sound in the future? Stay tuned for updates!
Q: When is a garage not just for cars?
A: When it’s a ceremonial space or a dance floor!

Joseph Patty and the Senior Leadership Academy guys have been meeting on the top floor of the garage, and their initiation ceremony took place al fresco. Student Ministries also held a very socially distanced dance party on floor three.
Q: When is a garage not just for parking?

In a once-in-800-years celestial event that’s been interpreted as the “Star of Bethlehem,” Jupiter and Saturn appeared 0.1º apart on the evening of December 21, 2020. One of the best inside-the-loop viewing spots? The 3rd floor of the St. Luke’s garage where some of our members took in the night sky.
