Bio

Jesuit Father Cristóbal Fones was born in Santiago, Chile, and has been active in music and the church since early childhood. He completed undergraduate studies at the Catholic University of Chile. Before entering the Jesuit novitiate, he sang at popular music festivals and weddings. In 2005-2006, began graduate studies at The Catholic University of America, in Washington, D.C. He was ordained in 2007 after completing graduate studies.

Father Cristóbal’s first collection, Te Contemplo en el Mundo, was a “simple production” that was surprisingly popular. Recognizing the need to make Catholic music more accessible in Chile, he recorded a second album in 1997, En Él Solo la Esperanza, which was even more widely distributed. He released the collection, Tejido a Tierra, with OCP in 2008. He also created the first Mass setting in the indigenous language of Chile, Misa ülkantun.

Father Cristóbal continues to compose music and minister in Chile.
