The Saint Louis Jesuits – Coming Home One Last Concert Where It All Began

The St. Louis Jesuits – Coming Home is a fitting title for the final concert of the St. Louis Jesuits – the last time Bob Dufford SJ, John Foley, SJ, Tim Manion, Roc O’Connor SJ, and Dan Schutte will perform on stage together. The group, backed by the College Church Choir, will perform many of their most beloved liturgical songs and hymns in the setting of St. Louis’ magnificent Powell Hall – just a few blocks from Saint Louis University, St. Francis Xavier College Church, and the former Fusz Memorial residence for Jesuit scholastics, where it all began 46 years ago. VIP pre-concert reception includes catered “High Tea” meet & greet with members of the St. Louis Jesuits immediately preceding the concert. For more information visit https://www.stlouisjesuits.com

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 concert

Tim will be joining the rest of the St. Louis Jesuits in their final on-stage reunion — the Coming Home concert. The event is currently sold out, but a 2-CD set of their most influential and beloved songs is currently available for preorder! After the concert, this collection will also be made available as an MP3 Album.
