NEW YORK – When Joseph Oden performs in parish choirs, he said he lets the spirit move him – sometimes he’ll cry, sometimes he’ll dance. Other times, like at the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Black Catholic Mass choir debut last week, he’s just filled with “a lot of joy.”

“It was just a lot of joy,” Oden told Crux of the debut. “It was just a really nice, really nice, experience.”
