Steve Angrisano is undoubtedly one of the most effective and versatile ministry leaders in our Church today. Generations of Catholics embrace the passionate message of faith, hope and love woven throughout his music and storytelling. Always rooted in a spirit of humility and faithfulness, Steve has a keen intuition, regarding the needs of any audience and engaging them with his unique blend of humor, song, story and interaction. This makes him both a natural and popular choice for diverse parish, diocesan, national and world-wide events.
A veteran musician, composer and youth minister Steve has been featured at 7 World Youth Days, several National Catholic Youth Conferences (NCYC), LA Congress, March for Life Rally and hundreds of diocesan youth conventions and conferences. His easy, honest style of ministry is born from who he is: a committed witness to the life and love of Jesus Christ. No matter if the song is deep and moving like "Welcome Home" (Welcome Home), a beloved favorite like, "Go Make A Difference" (Live: Songs from the Road) or a driving anthem calling us to discipleship like "A Rightful Place" (A New Day); whether the event is in an arena with tens of thousands of people, a parish mission where hundreds participate, or a weekend youth retreat with only dozens gathered, there is a consistent awareness that Steve is not just a performer. His genuine and sincere desire to bring everyone to a closer relationship with the Lord is what gives each event its own distinctive spiritual energy.
A New Day, Steve's latest release, reflects his own journey, growth and maturity both in faith and as a composer. Organized to follow the sequence of the Liturgy of the Hours, Steve hopes that, beginning the day with Benedictus and ending with Magnificat, listeners will hear the sunrise and set in the music.
Though Steve spends a great deal of time in any given year on the road (indicated by tens of thousands frequent flyer miles he's earned) and his life may seem to be a whirlwind of activity with little time left to be 'contemplative', he is a man of deep prayer who is devoted to his wife Jenni and their three children.
He has often said that he LOVES being Catholic and encourages each of us to remember that to be holy means to start where we're at right now, because we are all called to be saints.
