Mary Hochman is one of the Church’s most promising new text writers in the realm of children’s music. She has collaborated with composer Jerry Chiusano for several years. Their songs have been included in a number of contemporary songbooks and worship resources, including OCP’s Spirit & Song 1, Spirit & Song 2, Never Too Young and Breaking Bread.
She wrote the poems and song texts in Waiting for Love, a new Advent/Christmas cantata for children, released in May 2008. Currently, they are working on a collection of music based on the spirituality of St. Francis of Assisi.
Mary is a top-rated pre-kindergarten teacher in the Elizabeth, New Jersey, public school district, and an active parishioner at Our Lady of the Holy Angels, in Little Falls, New Jersey. A graduate of Seton Hall University, she has three children, ages three, eight and 11 (2008).
