Throughout the Rev. Dennis Cousens’ outer office, photos and statues of Jesus, Mary and other important figures of the Catholic faith line the walls, with one exception.
A fan of both classical and country music, he has a personalized and autographed picture of country singer Garth Brooks. It was given to him by a friend who knows Brooks and it has become a conversation piece to those who visit his office.
Cousens, like his taste in music, is a blend of the classical and contemporary.
