On March 22, 2019, Saint Michael Parish hosts Catholic songwriter Audrey Assad for an intimate evening of witness and music.

Sometimes the most compelling art and spiritually-nourishing songwriting comes after a challenging season, though in the case of consistently thought-provoking troubadour Audrey Assad, it appeared after a gut-wrenching deconstruction of her fundamentalist faith foundation, alongside crippling battles against anxiety. In fact, it was that very maze of emotions, coupled with the inability to write worship songs she felt were genuinely authentic, that resulted in the four years between her last original album and the immensely awaited Evergreen (Fortunate Fall Records/Tone Tree Music), which, besides chronicling the no-holds-barred transparency of her struggles, buds with rebirth and hope.

Experience Audrey Assad’s music up close as she tells her story and plays tunes from Evergreen in the intimate setting of Saint Michael Parish’s newly renovated downtown church.
