Christian music stars to perform at Maple Grove parish

Three of contemporary Christian music’s hottest stars will perform together in concert at St. Joseph the Worker in Maple Grove Friday, May 20.

Catholic singer/songwriters Steve Angrisano, Jesse Manibusan and Sarah Hart, who have appeared at World Youth Day and at Christian music festivals around the country, will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. for a night of high-energy praise and worship music.

The all-ages concert is co-sponsored by Relevant Radio and The Catholic Spirit.

“Music has unique way to touch hearts, and research tells us that the music that taps into our souls during our formative years tends to be the most memorable to us the rest of our lives,” said Bob Zyskowski, associate publisher of The Catholic Spirit. “So, for that reason, The Catholic Spirit is delighted to help make events like the one at St. Joseph the Worker possible.

“We’d love to have those who attend Tweet (#4thpower) about their thoughts during and after the concert” he added.

Youth rally

On Saturday, May 21, Angrisano, Manibusan and Hart will speak and perform their music at a rally for youth in grades nine through 12 at St. Joseph the Worker.

Registration begins at 12:30 p.m. Bishop Lee Piché will welcome the youth and lead the opening prayer. The rally, which includes several talks and faith-sharing opportunities, ends at 4:30 p.m.; however, participants are invited to stay for the 5 p.m. parish Mass.

The theme for the rally is “Love to the 4th Power,” drawing on Ephesians 3:17-18: “. . . And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. . . .”

Tickets are $15 for the concert and $18 for the youth rally. To purchase tickets, call Barry Shay at (763) 425-6505 or email him at
