Songs of Our Faith

Explore the Stories Behind Church Music

All are invited to join the School Sisters of St. Francis on Saturday, January 26, for a morning workshop exploring the fascinating stories behind some of the most familiar and beloved liturgical music, and the lives of the women and men who composed these songs and hymns.

“Songs of Our Faith: What’s Behind the Music?” will be presented from 9:00-11:15 a.m. at St. Joseph Center. The sisters are delighted to welcome our workshop leaders: historian Juliet Hills and acclaimed pianist, singer and actor Jack Forbes Wilson. We’ll delve through 900 years of music that has glorified the heavenly realms as they deepen our understanding of where and how the music came to be. Together, we’ll learn, sing, share, and reminisce, making a joyful noise unto the Lord!

The workshop fee is just $10. Reserve your place today by contacting Donna O’Loughlin at doloughlin@sssf.org or 414-385-5272.
