There wasn't any question that Rev. Alfred Godley could sing.
It came to him naturally. Godley was the product of a family of gospel and church music singers who were well known in San Antonio and Texas.

Godley was a member of the Shields of Faith gospel group for 24 years and a member of Quartet Association Local 62-2. He was also the assistant minister at St. Joseph's Baptist Church on San Antonio's East Side.

Blessed Sacrament Academy (BSA) never ceases to amaze me. During their almost 90 years of existence at 1135 Mission Road, they have maintained steadfast love and care for the people of the ever-changing South Side. The strength of their mission is shared with the children, youth and adults who interact with any of their five different educational, community-based programs, and has no doubt changed more lives than one could count.
