by Lore McFadden-Westwood | Mar 25, 2013

The Salesian Center for Faith and Culture at DeSales University continues to honor the Blessed John Paul II with its annual memorial Arts & Culture series event. This year the Salesian Center is hosting Catholic singer and songwriter Ryan Tremblay. This event takes place on Tuesday, April 2 at 7:30 p.m. in the University Center, DeSales campus in Center Valley. Accompanying Tremblay will be his producer and Grammy-nominated co-writer, Todd Urbonas. This event is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.

Tremblay shares his personal Catholic turnaround with powerful drumming, heart-felt songs and a true and sometimes hilarious story. The show is about his love of the people and sacraments of the Catholic Church and his newly-discovered appreciation of the power of both in his life.

A devout and practicing Catholic, Tremblay is also a musician, singer and songwriter. He holds a music degree from Rhode Island College where he won several awards. Tremblay discovered the teachings in John Paul II’s book, Theology of the Body, to be one of the driving forces behind his commitment and journey to inspire a generation to come with his message set to music.

The John Paul II Memorial Arts & Culture series is a celebration of the life and legacy of Blessed John Paul II (1920-2005), the Salesian Center sponsors this annual event focusing on the beauty of the arts (music, drama, poetry, literature, etc.). The event is held annually, on or around the April 2nd date of the pontiff's death. All performances are FREE and OPEN to the public.
