CELEBRATING 30 YEARS of MUSIC WITH THE SAINT JOHN OF GOD CHOIR
Marie shares on her journey with the Saint John of God Choir….
In 1989 I was invited by the Saint John of God Brothers form a choir for the Irish Province, drawn from staff, Brothers and friends to sing at a special event that year in honour of Saint John of God. The Saint John of Choir has been singing ever since! and I have been privileged to direct the choir for all of those years. While some members have moved on, and others have gone to their heavenly home, many have been part of the choir for most of those years. I am grateful to this wonderful group of people have played a big part in my life and in my music ministry. As a choir, we are indebted to the Brothers of Saint of God for their encouragement, support and hospitality over these years. It was for that event in March of 1989 that I composed my very first piece -
Photos taken at our recent 30th celebration include the choir with Bro. Donatus (Provincial), and Bro. Ronan with Deirdre Reece and Philomena Dunne -
