Kate Cuddy to Present at “Women in the Church” Lecture

September 6, 2018 | Joliet, Ill.

The University of St. Francis (USF) will celebrate the annual Bishop Joseph L. Imesch “Women in the Church” 2018 Lecture Series with a presentation by musician Kate Cuddy. The presentation will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at 7 p.m. in San Damiano Hall, which is located on the third floor of the Motherhouse on the main USF campus at 500 Wilcox Street in Joliet.

Cuddy has been involved in liturgical music for many years and believes the woman’s voice in the church is strong in this forum. She has sung, played the piano, and served as an arranger for numerous recordings over the years for many liturgical composers such as David Haas, Marty Haugen, Michael Joncas, Lori True, John Foley, Fran O’Brien, Tony Alonso, Liam Lawton, Donna Pena, Ricky Manalo, Scott Soper, Michael Mahler and Jeanne Cotter.  She can be heard as a group singer and soloist on various recordings of theirs.

Said composer David Haas of Cuddy, “Kate is not only a consummately talented musician – singer, pianist, arranger, composer and music educator – but a dedicated minister with a particular love of young people, and a total dedication to serving people of every age to find their voice as a singing and praying assembly.”

Come enjoy a lively evening presentation interspersed with melodies from this woman of our church today. Attendees are encouraged to RSVP by phone to 815-740-3807 or by email to jhicks@stfrancis.edu.
