The Haitian congregation that attends St Jeromes' Church in Brooklyn
have enjoyed drums and other instruments as part of the service for a
long time. Probably since Fr. Guy Sansaricq (now Monseigneur)took over
as pastor. My wife and I loved the music so much, that we requested
that  the musicians play at our wedding this past August. Maybe lwa Gran
Bwa needs to take a trip out here and see that Haitian Catholics are
already realizing his vision.
