Building A Bridge Through Song And Community
The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity gratefully share five special free song downloads this June as part of their "Bridge Radio" at the Franciscanized World www.fscc-calledtobe.org .
Enjoy a sample of writers and artists who volunteer their time, energy and creativity with proceeds and royalties donated to the Steel Bridge Fund held by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The campaign to save the Steel Bridge in Door County, WI has become a large-scale musical event, inspiring artists and revitalizing a community in the process.
The June songs, originate from songwriting sessions at the annual Steel Bridge Songfest. St. Francis would feel at home in this event that builds even deeper bridges of the heart and spirit. Featured artists and songs include:
"Leavin' It All Behind" by Todd Carey and Freedy Johnston, "Build Us A Bridge" by Kim Manning and Landon Capelle, "The Real Deal" by Tom Schriner-Schmitt, "There is An Answer" by James Hall, "He Walked on The Water" by Mo Rose.
About to "Build Us A Bridge", singer-songwriter Kim Manning reflected "This song is about how we are all connected, everyone, and that by recognizing and honoring that connection we can rest assured that we are never alone, and that we can all grow strong, healthy, happy and holy.."
"We want to present our life as a viable option. Personal invitation is always best; however, we became convinced that real conversations can begin by using the language of images and music." said Sr. Julie Ann Sheahan, OSF, Directress of Vocations for the Franciscan order.
Established in 1869, the Roman Catholic Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity serve in Catholic health care, education and parish ministries in twelve dioceses throughout the United States.
