A Tribute to Bob Ellison
On Sunday, May 24, which incidentally
happens to be Bob Ellison's birthday, the parish family paid tribute to Bob for
his thirty years of service as Music Director for the parish.
Bob, an accomplished pianist and organist, has an M.A. in Religious Studies,
making him especially qualified to serve on the Parish Liturgy Committee and
work with that committee in planning all parish liturgical functions so that our
music perfectly reflects the distinct seasons of the Liturgical Year and
appropriates draws us into the nature of the feasts and seasons we celebrate.
More than an accomplished musician in his own right, Bob is particularly skilled
in directing the adult choir and working with the school children, encouraging
them and drawing out the best in their talents and gifts.
Our Lady Queen of Peace has been most
fortunate to have Bob as our music director for the past thirty years. But
more than just a music director, Bob is a family member, fully in touch with our
parish family, a man of faith and commitment who shares the joys and sorrows of
all of us.
And you know I can't write all of this
without tossing in at least one gibe. I'm proud to say that Bob is my
friend, even if he is not shy about blowing his own horn!
