“8 / 5” Music”
Celebrating through music God’s love for all of us…God has entrusted me with my Jenny, my lifelong companion and best friend, to help me as we follow His plan. The name 8/5 Music is a tribute to the anniversary of the beginning of our sacrament of marriage. Although music is the primary medium, other avenues may be explored as the ministry grows.
Mission / Vision
I am striving to follow God’s plan for me and my family, trusting that He will guide me to whatever I am meant. I wish to use my talents to serve God and others – bringing the love of Jesus Christ to others through music. I hope that my ministry will serve as a vehicle for healing and help others to find and respond to the love God has for each one of us. I believe that this ministry can reach Catholics and non-Catholics, Christians and non-Christians in a way that will be inclusive rather than divisive. My current role as music director at St. Patrick’s - St. Anthony’s Parish is my starting point for this ministry. Local churches and coffeehouses have served as the “bloom where you are planted” portion of this ministry with hopes to perform regularly at local / regional / national and international venues (e.g. coffeehouses, churches, and concerts) in both liturgical and non-liturgical settings, praying and performing both sacred liturgical as well as contemporary Christian music.
Statement of Faith
I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.
(Profession of Faith – Nicene Creed – 4th Century)
I use the Creed as my statement, because we are all ultimately brothers and sisters searching for our One true God. John Michael Talbot commented during one of his concerts that we all share the experiences of birth and death, it is in life’s journey that we all seek His presence in the ordinary and extraordinary. It is this journey to the infinite and the end of our earthly existence that we live each day hoping to catch a glimpse of the awesome wonder of God, and pray that we will be with Him throughout eternity. That is what I hope to help people do, to “catch a glimpse” of God.
