Barbara Bridge received her bachelor of music degree from Mount St. Mary’s College in Los Angeles in 1984. She served as cantor at the Papal Mass in Los Angeles in 1987 and several years at various events such as the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress and National Association of Pastoral Musicians Convention.
Since 1989, Barbara expanded her music ministry to include Taizé, providing music for Taizé prayer in churches and retreat centers of various denominations. Her 135-song collection, Hear the Prayers That Rise, brings people of various faith traditions together in contemplative prayer through song and silence. She has contributed her voice and several of her compositions to collections by Bob Hurd, A Lenten Journey and One with the Risen Lord. Her song “Now is the Acceptable Time” is commonly heard during the season of Lent.
Barbara retired from OCP in 2014 and lives in the Portland, Oregon, area.
