Hello! This is my first year singing with the Cathedral choir. I am a voice teacher, and being part of the Cathedral choir has helped me become a better musician and teacher. It means a great deal to me to be a part of making beautiful music each week, and I was especially touched by watching Archbishop Lucas wash feet while we sang the Mandatum. I hope that I am helping parishioners at St. Cecilia’s be more connected to their faith. To be able to support Pope Francis at the conclusion of the Year of Mercy is truly an honor. Like many people, I feel a special connection to Pope Francis’ message of love, acceptance, and mercy, and I want to do everything I can to support that message.
