Christmas Concert Update

The Oddwalk Christmas concert at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows was a success! Not only was it a lot of fun, but the fundraiser for Sgt. Jon Brough went well too. The first musical group of the evening, from Holy Redeemer in St. Louis helped out, announcing the cause, and taking donations before Oddwalk went out to play. Over the course of the night, over $300 was raised to support The Brough family. The Shrine Gift shop was also donating a dollar from each sale of two special ornaments to the collection. No report yet on how many were sold, but more than a dozen or two would be a safe bet.

All in all a fantastic night at the Shrine! Thanks to all of you who were able to support Oddwalk in person last night and those who support us in other ways, both last night and throughout the year!


Jon Brough went home from the hospital today (December 23rd). You can read more about it in this article from the Belleville News-Democrat.

What a great Christmas gift for the Brough family. Praise God!
