Mark your October calendars in New Jersey and Northern California to attend The Living Rosary Concert for Life featuring the music and testimony of award winning Catholic recording artists Donna Lee and Gretchen Harris.
The Living Rosary Concert for Life is a very special 90-minute concert event promoting the sanctity of life.
“It's different than just a music concert because everyone present is united in prayer for a common cause. It's an intimate evening of hope and healing as we share our personal testimonies about adoption, abortion, and transformation through the mercy of God.” - Gretchen Harris
“It's an evening of prayer, song and testimony. We will be praying the rosary and sharing our faith journey along with music. We will light a candle for each Hail Mary to adopt a baby that is in danger of being aborted” – Donna Lee
Donna Lee is one of the founding members of the Catholic Association of Musicians started by John Michael Talbot in 1996. Her debut album, “Immaculate Heart, O Sacred Heart,” was released in 1990, and was enthusiastically received by all ages.
