The Saint Louis Jesuits: Continuing The Legacy

On Sunday, February 16, 2020, in Fairfield, CT, Tim Manion, Roc O’Connor, SJ, and Dan Schutte of the St. Louis Jesuits will offer a taste of their Coming Home concert. Many were disappointed when the St. Louis concert sold out. Here is a chance for others to experience some of the wonder of that concert. The concert will take place at 4:00pm in the beautiful Quick Center for the Arts at Fairfield University. They will be joined by the choir and instrumentalists from St. Anthony of Padua Church in Fairfield. Proceeds will go to support the Murphy Center for Ignatian Spirituality.

Bio

Originally from St. Louis, Tim Manion studied philosophy and theology at St. Louis University. In seminary, he met the other members of the St. Louis Jesuits and began composing in 1973. The young musicians released several collections that would eventually be widely used throughout English-speaking Catholic parishes, as well as in mainline Protestant denominations. In 1980, the five men moved to Seattle, Washington, where they recorded Lord of Light in 1981, after which Tim left the group to pursue other interests.

Tim’s solo collection, There Is a River, was originally released by North American Liturgy Resources in 1985. His gift for poetic song texts — all familiar from his days with the Jesuits — shines through each of the nine songs.

Currently Tim lives in the Seattle area. He continues to compose folk music.

Coming Home collection

After the final on-stage reunion with his fellow St. Louis Jesuits, Tim and the group offer a collection of their most influential and beloved songs — available in physical and digital formats!
