Oregon Catholic Press, Kevin Keil and I, have just released our new mass setting; "Wondrous Love Mass". It is a setting primarily for the season of Lent using the Hymn tune Wondrous Love. I had a simple idea for it and Kevin did a masterful job making it into a very accessible and prayerful setting that we both have been using in our parishes for the past two Lenten seasons. We hope it will become a prayerful addition to your Lenten repertoire for you and your ministry as well.
A CD Inspired by and in honor of Julia Hillebrand.
The Hillebrand Family has been working on this CD for about a year and it is finally ready! Many of you know that Paul Hillebrand and his wife Nan, have five children and His youngest daughter Julia, passed away at age 12 in December of 2010 from an inoperable brainstem tumor. She fought for 16 months and was a very brave, creative and faith-filled little girl who left us with many great memories, paintings, and even some songs that will be included on the CD.
Paul has written some music for this project and many Catholic composers including Tom Booth, Matt Maher, Aaron Thompson, Michael John Poirer, Audrey Assad, Steve Croskey, have donated their original music to help raise funding for Pediatric Brain Tumor Research.
Minimum $15 donation. All proceeds go toward Pediatric Brain Tumor Research
