Vatican II: The MusicalTo celebrate the 50th anniversary of the end of Vatican II that changed the face of the Church, St Joan of Arc, Highbury  is putting on - for free- Vatican II: The Musical at 7.30pm on Saturday 5th December. Written specially for the occasion by Father Bill Bowder, this new work, with lovely catchy tunes by the young Dublin composer Aaron Marchant evokes in words, song and dance the spirit of the Council. Set in the Via Santa Maria dell' Anima, Rome, street cleaners, the Holy Spirit, a gelato seller, two popes, a cardinal, a diarist, some agitated bishops and the documents tell their story and follow the council from its awkward beginnings to its triumphant end - and what happened afterwards. Come along, it's free!
