Local priest delivering Bruce Springsteen-style sermon to teach life lessons

WATERVLIET, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Bruce Springsteen fans out there, get a load of this.

One local priest is using his music to spread a message of unity.

Father Stephanos Doudoukijan is the parish priest at St. Peter Armenian Church in Watervliet.

He’s put together a unique retreat focusing on the lyrics and music from “the boss” himself.

The public is invited to attend and take part in the discussion.

Doudoukijan says he’s always felt a strong connection to the music and wanted to share that with others.

“His music has always spoken to me. It speaks to my very existence – as a human being, as a male, as a priest, as an individual, it speaks to my soul. His lyrics are really profound.”

The Springsteen Retreat takes place Saturday, October 15 from 4 – 9 p.m.
