The Archdiocese’s Got Talent: Guess who is the next celebrity DJ in Midtown?
June 26, 2012

Father Sean Horrigan has had a few titles in his lifetime: Archdiocesan priest, parish pastor, journalist. This Friday, he'll add one more label to the list: Celebrity DJ.

The pastor of Christ the Redeemer Church in Houston is set to be the Celebrity DJ at Leon's Lounge, 1006 McGowen, June 29. Owner Pete Mitchell invites guest disk jockeys to spin records on Friday evenings, and he asked Father Horrigan to be this Friday's DJ from 9 p.m. to midnight – with proceeds from the evening going toward San Jose Clinic, the Archdiocese's Midtown clinic for the uninsured. San Jose Clinic is located next door to Leon's Lounge.

Father Horrigan will be using an old-school turntable (playing actual records, not CDs!) at the fundraiser, which he said is benefiting a charity that is close to his heart. San Jose Clinic was started by a priest, Monsignor Walsh, along with a donation of $50 from the Charity Guild of Catholic Women and volunteers from the community who wanted to find a way to offer health care to the underserved.

Father Horrigan will be taking donations and playing requests to benefit the facility. If you're up for listening to some rock ‘n' roll and old school country tunes while supporting a clinic that has benefited men, women, children and seniors of Greater Houston for more than 90 years, head to Leon's Lounge this Friday. Entertainment – and support for neighbors in great need – is guaranteed.
