His latest of four CD''s is titled "Live Like Saints", which was produced in Nashville by the well-known Joe Hand. He is currently recording a fifth CD of songs most requested by parishioners and friends for Mass and sacred liturgical celebrations of the Church.
John began recording his award winning music after a decision he made (led by the Holy Spirit) to leave his career in probation after 25 years of working in the field.
He believes that he has been called to stand in the path of the yound and old, the lost and the broken, those who wander in the world, looking for love and acceptance. He wants to strengthen, inspire and lead others to know the love of Christ and His sacred heart. He believes that through Christ, we can experience a blessed life.
