On Monday, February 26
th, Brooklyn Deanery #4 will present its project for the Year of Vocations here at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, Curtis Stephan: Hearing God’s Call. It’s an evening of song and testimony! Curtis performed here once before in 2013, with Dan Schutte and Steve Angrisanno in Age to Age: Generations of Faith.

A lifelong musician, Curtis received his bachelor’s in music and his master’s in jazz studies from the University of North Texas. He lives in Frisco with his wife and children. He is director of music and liturgy for St. Ann Catholic Church in Coppell, a mega-parish with more than 30,000 attendees, as well as a composer, concert and recording artist and workshop clinician.

Since committing his life to serving the Gospel through music, he's published five solo collections, including Through the Storm. His Love Remains: Songs of Consolation, explores grief and finding Christ's peace. Amid Passing Things features his Mass of Renewal, one of the most popular Mass settings in US parishes since the promulgation of the new Roman Missal in 2011, and one we sing here. He recently collaborated with fellow composers on Our Common Home, inspired by Pope Francis’ Laudato Si’ encyclical, touching on themes of care for creation, poverty and solidarity.

He travels the world, witnessing to all ages with the same goal: helping people connect with God and making disciples for Christ. Curtis starts at 7:30
PM, but opening for him at 7:00 PM is the Guerin Catholic HS Music Department from Noblesville, IN! So come early and enjoy, reflect and pray!
