If there is something therapeutic about praise and worship, the College experienced a time of tremendous spiritual refreshment on Saturday, March 1 when the Organization of African American Unity sponsored Gospel Fest in the Ozinga Chapel.

"We had a great evening just praising the Lord," said Myron Graham, president of OAAU. "You could feel the joy and enthusiasm as the choirs sang glory to God. I believe He was very pleased with our worship."

At OAAU's invitation, choirs from North Central College and Thornwood, Thornridge, Curie, and Oak Park-River Forest high schools joined Trinity's gospel choir for the concert. The riveting, soulful selections highlighted the best of contemporary and traditional music that is a staple of worship in African American culture.

"Each choir did a tremendous job," said Felecia Thompson, Trinity's director of academic support and services who also sings in a Christian choir based in Chicago. "The worship was powerful and uplifting, and I sensed that those who attended walked away inspired and rejuvenated."
