For the musically inclined among you, Pontifical Mission Societies has launched its 2014 Song Contest for Young Catholics. There are two divisions, the Adolescent category for high school students and the Young Adult category for ages 18-29. This year’s contest is based on the theme “I will build my church.” Young Catholics are asked to submit original songs on the theme before May 24, 2015. For entry form and more information, you can click here.
PMS has also released recordings of last year’s winners for free download. The Young Adult winner is Isabella Rose for “Go Make Disciples” and the Adolescent winner is my friend and all-around awesome young woman, Alessandra Rincon, for “Ignite in Me.” After more than a year of watching her alternately bite her nails and bounce with excitement, it is my honor to share her recording with our Dappled Things audience. You can also download both songs here, and there is a web chat with both winners.
Congratulations, Ally and Isabella, and good luck to all of you who might enter!
