Music and the Gospel: “Wild Things,” Alessia Cara, 2nd Sunday of Easter

When Alessia Cara sings out to let your face “shine, shine, shine,” she celebrates the grace that every individual brings to our lives and communities. SPIRIT celebrates the Starry Night Prom that students at De La Salle High School host for people who are disabled. They welcome more than a thousand people. The prom has become a favorite event for the hosts and the guests as both delight in friendship and happiness.

Key lines: We will carve our place into time and space / We will find our way, or we’ll make a way, say hey, hey / Hey find your grace, don’t hide your face / And let it shine, shine, shine

Questions: How do differently-abled students fit in at your school and community? What have your learned from volunteering with people unlike you? How does volunteering build relationships and understanding?
