Saint Catherine’s would like to invite you, your family, and your friends to a free concert on April 22 from 6-7 p.m. This concert event features Amanda Vernon, a singer and songwriter based in Hayward.
I love music. Which, for the most part, isn’t that special, since most people love music. But I am also pretty particular when it comes to music, especially when it comes to faith-based music (which can sometimes make it challenging to really worship God if I don’t like how a particular musician is doing it). I first saw Amanda sing at the NorCal OnFire event at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom back in September. She did a phenomenal job – especially considering her microphone wasn’t working! She didn’t let it phase her and she continued sharing her story and singing, being loud enough for all to hear. She is a gifted Catholic musician that is able to engage all ages. Her songs and stories are inspirational, and I hope you can join us. There will be an opportunity to purchase her music and talk to Amanda, as well as some light refreshments.
