St. Joseph Catholic Parish’s “Country” Church in Webster Twp. north of Dexter was the site of a remarkable concert on Saturday May 14th, as Michael Russell O’Brien arrived from Clearwater, Fla. to entertain a crowd of 300 people. The concert was initiated by and organized with the help of a Manchester resident, Deb. Read more about Deb and her inspiration to organize the concert HERE.

The concert was sponsored by St. Joseph Parish, the Dexter Knights of Columbus, and the Dexter Ladies Auxiliary as a fundraiser for St. Louis Center in Chelsea, MI. St. Louis Center is a faith-based non-profit residential home for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities run by the Servants of Charity Congregation.
