Theresa Kate brings a contemporary blend of rock and pop to the Christian music industry. She grew up in a small Connecticut town, the sixth of seven children. God was a huge presence in her childhood, but it wasn’t until she traveled halfway across the country that Theresa felt called to perform her faith. The “halfway” was Nashville, Tennessee, where she moved, after studying Musical Theatre at Dean College, to pursue Music Business at Belmont University. While learning about topics such as music publishing and artist management, Theresa performed at a downtown dinner theater and traveled the surrounding states with a gospel-ministry choir. In many ways, her experience “down south” shaped who she has become as a person and music artist.
After graduation, Theresa continued to perform as the lead singer for a secular rock band, playing venues all over Connecticut, including Foxwoods Resort Casino. Today, she works as a Worship Leader for St. Michael’s Parish in East Longmeadow, MA and is married to her high school sweetheart. They have three young children together.
About HomeFront: HomeFront began 20 years ago after a number of St. Patrick’s parishioners came together to help fellow parishioners in need. Developing into a full fledge program after joining HomeFront, Inc. of Stamford, CT, they have averaged four sites per year, mostly in Enfield, with over 70 homes being rehabilitated. Looking to assist homeowners who are physically and financially challenged, it is necessary to pledge to HomeFront, Inc., $2,500 for each site helping to provide necessary materials needed. Each year we have been fortunate to receive support from our St. Raymond of Peñafort parishioners, grants from the Archdiocese of Hartford Cooperative Sharing, St. Jeanne Jugan Parish, Matthew-25 and occasional grants from the Town of Enfield. Over 200 HomeFront volunteers have helped homeowners improve their quality of life and preserve human dignity in the most difficult of economic times. St. Raymond of Peñafort Parish is proud to announce they have been selected to receive the 2018 Bishop Donnelly Award from the Archdiocese of Hartford which has recognized the good work of HomeFront, one of the many ministries of St. Raymond of Peñafort Parish.
