Our Catholic United Bands Together concert fundraiser on June 16 was a success. We appreciate everyone that tuned in live on that Tuesday night to enjoy the music by Sonar and to hear testimony about the work of charity Haiti180.
Generous donors contributed $1,300 dollars which, combined with a matching grant of $1,000 from Catholic United Financial, is $2,300 raised for this worthy charity. Thanks to everyone who donated!
We are a Catholic band from St. Paul, Minnesota with roots in many genres from electronic dance music to rock and pop to country and bluegrass. We are at home with both contemporary worship and traditional hymns. And whether it’s a gathering of a few hundred or an event for tens of thousands, we are always striving to draw others deeper into worship through our music.
Sometimes we need a little help to let go and let God – to shake off the routine and prepare for the extraordinary. Sonar gets the Church on its feet to break the ice and just have a bit of fun! We respond to the Lord’s movement in our lives in a special way when we come together as a community and unite our voices in praise. Sonar uses its music to create an environment for the community to do just that.
Catholic United Financial is partnering with Catholic musicians to spread the message of music, worship and unity during June 2020.
Every Tuesday in June, Catholic United will livestream a concert by a Catholic musician/band that is free for all to view. During these concerts, you will be invited to learn about and donate to a charity selected by the artists.
Your virtual ticket is FREE for all performances. Each musician/band will select a charity of their choice which will be featured during the concert. Please consider a freewill donation to these charities to show your support for their efforts in COVID-19 relief. Knowing that these are difficult economic times, Catholic United is excited to sponsor this effort to help both musicians and charities. We will offer a matching grant, totaling $1,000, to match donations made during the concerts through our giving portal.
