On the evening of Thursday, September 27, 2012, Holy Trinity Catholic Parish had sponsored a concert with Matt Maher, a Popular Catholic Music Recording Artist. The concert took place at the Christian Church of Clarendon Hills in the town of Clarendon Hills, IL. Since the church where the concert was held was a non-denominational church, it showed Christian unity and Matt even took note of that during the concert.
Matt performed some of his uplifting and inspiring music. Within his music ministry, he is able to help encourage, inspire, and uplift people as they grow in their faith. This was the first concert that he started to record live for a live album that he is starting to put together. Along with Matt on the stage, his band joined him so the music came live within the intimate venue that we were in. Within the audience, everyone was on there feet and were in engaged with Matt’s music. A few of the songs that Matt performed include: “Rise Up,” “Alive Again,” “Hold Us Together,” “Your Grace is Enough,” “Turn Around,” “On My Way,” and a few others.
It was a blessing to have the opportunity to hear Matt perform live. His music and even with how he engaged with his audience in between the songs, is inspiring and uplifting. Matt’s music is a gift from God and it’s also a blessing how he is able to minister to people about our Catholic-Christian faith.
Catholic and Christian music, like Matt Maher’s music, is the kind of inspiration and uplifting music that we need in our society and Church.
I encourage you all to check out Matt’s music and I’m sure it will encourage, inspire, and uplift your faith journey. You can find Matt’s music on iTunes or at his website. To learn more about Matt, you can visit his website at http://mattmahermusic.com
