Oct. 14-16 mission in Bloomington to feature singer John Michael Talbot

Popular contemporary Christian music singer John Michael Talbot, a convert to Catholicism, is coming to the St. Paul Catholic Center, 1413 E. 17th St. in Bloomington on the IU campus, to offer a mission starting each evening at 7 p.m. on Oct. 14-16.

Talbot’s spiritual journey eventually led him to learn about the life of St. Francis of Assisi. He began studying at a Franciscan center in Indianapolis, where he became a Catholic in 1978.

Talbot is one of the pioneering artists of what has become known as contemporary Christian music. He is recognized as Catholic music’s most popular artist, with 4.5 million sales and compositions published in hymnals throughout the world.

Talbot leads his very active ministry from the Little Portion Hermitage in Arkansas, where he is the founder and Minister General of the Brothers and Sisters of Charity.

His artistic and humanitarian efforts have been recognized with awards from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the Gospel Music Association, Mercy Corps and the Mother Teresa award.

When a fire devastated the monastery in April of 2008, Talbot began a new format of itinerant ministry traveling from parish to parish raising money to rebuild his community’s home.

Today, Talbot travels more than nine months per year throughout the world, inspiring and renewing the faith of Christians through sacred music, inspired teaching and motivational speaking.

Admission is free, although there will be a free-will offering collected each evening to support John Michael’s ministry.

For more information, call 812-339-5561.
