AUGUSTA — Steve Angrisano, a musician who travels the world with a message of using music to share hope, plans to conduct a music ministry workshop Saturday, March 25.

The workshop, which runs from 9-11:30 a.m., will be hosted by St. Michael Parish in the St. Augustine Church and hall on 75 Northern Ave.

The cost to attend is $20, and breakfast will be served prior to the start of the workshop from 8:15-8:45 a.m., according to a news release from Dave Guthro, communications director, Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland.

“Leading liturgical prayer and worship is not about performing but allowing others to enter into the moment and pray. Steve’s music workshop shares invaluable tips on music in worship for any ensemble and is filled with inspiration and humor,” said Gina Czerwinski, pastoral life coordinator at St. Michael Parish.

Angrisano is a Catholic composer, presenter and music missionary. For over two decades, he has traveled around the world, sharing a blend of humor, story and song. Connecting head to heart, renewing faith and inspiring young and old alike, Angrisano’s daily work is dedicated to presenting parish missions, leading groups to the Holy Land, and 25 years composing music for Oregon Catholic Press.

He has been featured at 10 World Youth Days, three National Catholic Youth Conferences (2005, 2007 and 2009), and served as a keynote speaker for the Australian Youth Festival in 2017 and 2019. He also served as emcee when St. John Paul II visited St Louis in 1999.


His 2020 album, “Let Us All Rejoice,” features modern musical settings of the entrance and Communion antiphons. The project received an Association of Catholic Publishers 2021 Excellence in Publishing Award.

All are encouraged to participate in this morning of prayer, reflection and inspiration. Those who plan to attend are asked to contact Czerwinski at 207-623-8823 ext. 212, or [email protected].
