The Pontifical Gregorian University has the long tradition of offering its students the opportunity to sing Advent and Christmas carols during the 15-minute breaks between classes in the week prior to Christmas break. For the first time, our community members decided to participate. They sang songs in the three languages that are most common at the Gregorian: Italian, English and Spanish.
It was a success! The Lay Centre “band”, formed by many voices, one piano player, three guitars and several ukuleles – a typical Hawaiian instrument – really engaged the our audience. Our musicians received many compliments from their classmates.
Some of them already knew The Lay Centre, others had the chance to hear about it for the first time. Many of our good friends came to the Gregorian only to listen to the simple and joyous performance of our residents. We sincerely felt that we contributed to creating a good mood at the university in preparation for Christmas.
