If you have attended a Catholic Mass, you’ve undoubtedly heard a Steve Angrisano song, or are pretty familiar with “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)” and “Alleluia! Love is Alive.” So, don’t miss the chance to see Steve Angrisano at St. Paul’s in Sauk Centre at 7 p.m. on Nov. 26 and 27 for a free parish mission.
A renowned musician, composer, and storyteller, Steve’s passion for the faith is contagious. The mission will indeed be an event for all ages. There’s no need to divide the attendees into age groups — his message is for all in a world where we all seem to be searching for hope and truth.
And it’s certainly clear how powerful Steve’s message is — he’s booked about two years in advance for parish missions. He has also emceed three National Catholic Youth Conferences and has been featured at 10 World Youth Days.
“I’ve seen many Catholic presenters, and Steve’s is everything in one package,” says Betsy Willing, Steve’s publicist. “He’s equally a speaker and musician. He will have the audience wrapped up in a beautiful story and then launch into the perfect song to reflect the moral message. At times, you will laugh and cry, but you will enjoy the night.”
Steve will present on our Stewardship Renewal theme, “You Invited Me In.” He will focus on welcoming the stranger on the first night and us welcoming Jesus in at the Eucharist and Adoration on the second night.
“You are sure to leave the mission with lessons to take with you and apply in your everyday life,” Betsy says. “Any age can attend. It’s a great date night and a great young adult night.”
Come not only to hear some of Steve’s beautiful and popular music but also his message of faith.
Kathy Knoblach, Director of Formation and Outreach for Parishes on the Prairie, has heard Steve speak many times over the years. She looks forward to bringing his message to Parishes on the Prairie. She knows you will absolutely not be disappointed by this mission.
“Steve Angrisano is a faith-filled man of God,” Kathy says. “He is a gifted musician and storyteller. He shows how God is present in everyday experiences. I have found myself laughing and crying throughout his presentations. I believe Steve has the ability to give people a boost in their faith.”
In addition, as Kathy notes, the mission will be a great way to for our parishes to make our way into the Advent season.
During his time here, Steve will also visit Holy Family School, do a staff workshop, and host a Wednesday night event for teens — the Wednesday night event is ticketed.
Don’t miss the parish mission, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 26 and 27 at St. Paul’s. A reception will follow in the church basement. The mission is free.
