St. John the Evangelist Parish, Pocasset, is hosting Catholic musician Chris Brunelle for this evening of faith-filled music. An accomplished guitarist with a smooth voice often compared to John Denver, Chris is best known for his YouTube channel featuring music published by Oregon Catholic Press; he has more than 36,000 subscribers and nearly a half-million video views each month.
Chris’s church music career spans four decades. He joined the music ministry of his childhood church in 4th grade and was leading a parish choir by the time he turned 16. He is currently the music director at Holy Family Catholic Church in Portland, Oregon, a role he has held for 27 years, and he has helped lead music at many other Portland-area churches including St. Mary’s Cathedral, the seat of the Archdiocese of Portland.
Weaving together personal storytelling, ministry, and music, Chris creates an inspirational and uplifting evening for Catholic faith communities. Recent concert stops have taken Chris to Florida, Kentucky, Missouri, Arizona, Idaho, Washington, and, of course, his home state of Oregon.
This concert is free and open to the public. Free will offerings are welcome.
