|Year of Faith Events – Carrick Ministries|
Julie Carrick sang her first solo at the age of 5. Since then, she has devoted her life and her music to Jesus. Even after surviving a rare form of lung cancer a few years ago, Julie continues to minister and share her faith with Catholics all over the world. We were recently blessed to once again host one of Julie’s fantastic missions: Living Our Catholic Creed.
One thing you will notice about Julie is that she is humble and transparent. She shares freely of her own pain and her own joy. Her music flows from a wellspring of experience throughout her life.
She proudly tells of how her husband of nearly 30 years bore witness to his Catholic faith to a co-worker.
She shares her agony upon learning that her daughter had been raped and subsequently became pregnant. Her daughter Edel’s courage in accepting and embracing that new life is also a part of Carrick Ministries.
She shares her own story of temptation, when she has to make a choice between a lucrative recording contract with “stipulations” and her own morals and values.
Throughout the evening, Julie performs her award winning compositions, as well as classic hymns, interweaving inspiration with quotes from St. Teresa of Avila and an attentive reading of the Creed.
This mini concert/mission is perfect for the “Year of Faith”. You will truly be inspired to live your faith boldly, taking a stand for marriage, for life, and for what “We Believe”.
