Jazzing it up to feed the hungry

Chicago, among other things, is a great jazz town. A Catholic priest in the Windy City who also happens to be a jazz guitarist is capitalizing on that fact in order to raise money for many of the city's food pantries, including Catholic Charities of Chicago.

Father John Moulder, pastor of St. Gregory the Great in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago, has organized the Chi-Town Jazz Festival in some of the hottest jazz spots in the city. The venues and musicians have donated their space, time and talents for the event, which runs March 16-21.

"I've always had the idea of bringing together musicians for a common cause, and now just seemed like the right time to do it," Father Moulder told The Chicago Tribune.
