Gospel group “Roderick Giles & Grace” put on a rousing performance at St. Columba’s on June 30, to benefit our partner Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington’s “Empower the Homeless” campaign. “Beyond spectacular,” one attending parishioner exclaimed when the final notes were sung. The group entertained the audience for over an hour at St. Columba’s with a dozen of their favorite songs and spirituals, including “To God Be The Glory,” “O How I Love Jesus,” and “O Fix Me.”  A highlight was a call-and-response song that involved the audience singing along in “He’s Alright With Me.” Giles introduced each song with words of praise and thanksgiving to God for all our blessings.
