PostAmerican Church in Paris (David Duggan, USA, 03/31/19 4:15 am)
My cousin, the Rev. Thomas Duggan, was the pastor at the American Church in Paris in the 1980s, and had the organ installed. I visited this church in 2016.
JE comments: Wikipedia teaches us that the ACP, founded in 1814, was the first American church established outside the United States. In just a few days, WAISer David Pike, a British-born, US-educated scholar living in Paris, will be performing the work of another illustrious international: the Polish-born genius residing in France, Frédéric Chopin. Some of Chopin's greatest pieces were composed on Mallorca, home to WAISer Tim Ashby.
The interdenominational ACP is not to be confused with the American Cathedral in Paris (Episcopalian), where Ronald Hilton's grandson Jonathan Huyck used to officiate. (Jonathan is now rector at Grace Church in Providence, Rhode Island, and I read in his bio that he is an authority on Georgian cuisine.)
I hope I got all this right. In any case, best of luck to David Pike on Wednesday!
