Array of Hope delivers an opportunity for Catholic families to encounter Jesus Christ through music, worship, and witness. 

Array of Hope exists to reveal the “Truths of our Faith,” to help people “rediscover the joy and confidence of believing in the Triune God and to enthusiastically profess that faith as a true encounter and relationship with Jesus Christ.” (Instrumentum Laboris,#18). 

The Array of Hope concert event is a multimedia experience, sharing the Faith through live musical performances, talks, and personal witnesses, along with high-quality visuals and thought-provoking film presentations. This show journeys through the three Theological Virtues of Faith, Hope, and Love, culminating with the importance of fostering a relationship with Christ through prayer. It is a powerful and transformative experience designed to be a vehicle for the Holy Spirit to inspire all who attend it. It especially celebrates an appreciation of the family. 

The show’s key themes are the importance of God in the family and the loving support prayer can bring to the spiritual and emotional development of us and our children. This is a perfect family event. The show runs approximately 2.5 hours with an intermission. 

The Array of Hope concert experience brings together personal faith stories from young adults, prayer experiences, exciting live musical performances, and live interaction with participants to provide a powerful, faith-building experience that helps people grow in their love of Jesus Christ. “They present the Gospel in Technicolor,” as John Morales of “Morning Air” on Relevant Radio said. Even Gus Llyod host of “Seize the Day” on Sirius XM’s the Catholic Channel commented, “It’s a really exciting show!” 

Array of Hope has been featured on EWTN, the Catholic Faith Network, Shalom World, Catholic TV, Salt and Light Media and The NET. Array of Hope has also been featured in large Archdiocese conferences such as One LIFE LA and is one of the headlining performers for the well known event Abbey Fest. Array of Hope has been drawing thousands of 

youth and families to the Catholic Church by awakening their inner desire to seek a relationship with Christ and promoting the ideals of families. This unique Catholic ministry delivers the Gospel in a way that is relevant to our youth and families.

Remembering September 11th- Mercies in Disguise
Sometimes, the best stories come from unexpected moments of inspiration. Recently, I had a unique experience attending Mass at St. Columba in Columbia. Originally, I hadn't planned on going there; the church I regularly attend had canceled the early Mass for the summer. At the same time, I was struggling to find a topic for this month's Four County Catholic article. Writer's block had hit me hard, and the deadlines were looming. During the Communion meditation, something remarkable happened. My eyes caught sight of a large plaque on the wall listing the corporal...

Take Time to Talk with Jesus

Posted on September 03, 2023 in: Reflections


Take Time to Talk with Jesus
Research shows 95 percent of people have an interior dialogue with themselves and 25 percent talk to themselves out loud. I confess. I’m one of the 95 percent … and, I hesitate to say this, I’m one of the 25 percent. While I was wandering through the supermarket the other day, I had this conversation, with myself: “Look at these prices! How can anyone afford groceries nowadays?” “It’s terrible!” I just hope no one heard me, and if they didn’t, it was probably because they were talking to themselves. This ...

Pope St. John Paul II Hiking Club Blends Faith, Friends and the Beauty of God’s Creation
Pope St. John Paul II, who had a passion for the great outdoors and used it to evangelize the Catholic faith, is inspiring others locally to do the same. Suzi Porter, leader of a women’s Bible study group at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Waterbury, was driving to a class last March when she felt called to start a Catholic hiking group and name it after the saint and former pope. “Our former Pope loved the outdoors and I had seen pictures of him hiking and skiing and kayaking well into his senior years,” Porter says. “I thought wh...
