Addressing journalists at St. Patrick’s church in central London, Patten highlighted “wasteful” duplications of media services at the Vatican and said modernization was imperative.

There are several factoids about John Ringhofer that elicit fandom, and none of them have anything to do with his music:

  1. He still uses a CD walkman
  2. He lives rent-free in a church in Berkeley, California, where he serves as the custodian.
  3. He often attends two to three church services a Sunday because he loves the art of sermonizing.
  4. He is a nice guy.
