When Pope Francis celebrates two worship services Sept. 24-25 in New York, some of the music will have a Fort Wayne connection.
Trinity English Lutheran Church Music Director Robert Hobby wrote a new musical score — the notes musicians play — for the hymn "Tu Es Petrus" ("You Are Peter"), which is scheduled for use during the pope's evening prayer service at 6:45 p.m. Sept. 24 in St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York. Hobby also wrote new musical arrangements for the hymn "Alleluia! Sing to Jesus," which is set for use during the pope's Mass at 6 p.m. Sept. 25 in Madison Square Garden.
"I feel very proud and very honored to be part of it because, first of all, we are all Christians," Hobby, 52, said.
