Dear Share the Journey performers, families, and friends,
My most heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you for your participation/involvement in last night's concert. It went way beyond my expectations. I have immense gratitude for your generosity in sharing your talents for this most important cause. Not only did we make amazing music with instruments, voices, and "thinking caps" (thank you, Tom), but we also helped raise awareness among ourselves and those present of the plight of so many immigrant individuals and families and of 2 wonderful organizations that work with them. May we continue to make our music and "share in the hope!"
Blessings to you all!
I received the final total for the Share the Journey Concert. We were able to raise $4553 to be divided evenly between the two organizations we were supporting. Thanks to each of you for your participation and for making this such a wonderful evening. I can't help but be grateful that we have tried to impact the lives of so many individuals. You are all such special people, I enjoyed the opportunity to work with you. Also, Bellarmine would like us to come back next year and do it again so we'll be in touch.

I met Deborah Shipps over 15 years ago.
She worked quite a bit with our gospel choir at Mother of Christ Parish teaching music, playing for funerals, and other occasions as needed. I was honored to work with her as a support musician on various music revivals, liturgies, and other music projects.
She was a wonderful person to work with; professional, humble, and a joy.
It would be an understatement to say that she influenced many people. Her reach extended from St. Louis to Cincinnati and points in between.
She will truly be missed.
