The St. Louis Jesuits stage one final show | Behind the Story

Even if you’ve never heard of the St. Louis Jesuits, you almost certainly know their songs by heart: “One Bread, One Body,” “Here I Am, Lord” and “Sing to the Mountains” are just a few of their beloved Catholic hits.

The five songwriters returned to their old stomping grounds, St. Louis, Missouri, last week, for a final farewell concert. Join America’s Colleen Dulle and Fr. Roc O’Connor, S.J., one of the St. Louis Jesuits and the composer of “Lift Up Your Hearts,” for a conversation on the group’s legacy—and where Catholic music is going next.
