    Five-Hour Christian Rock Concert “JOURNEY” Will Live-Stream to Global Audience
    Garden Grove, calif., (sept. 15, 2016) The Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange is the 12th largest Catholic Community in the United States and may be the nation’s most economically, ethnically and culturally diverse diocese. Led by the innovative Bishop Kevin Vann, the Diocese has demonstrated a willingness to adopt creative methods when reaching out the 1.3+ million registered Catholics it serves. This is particularly true when communicating with young Catholics. The Diocese will celebrate its 40th anniversary September 18, 2016. As part of a day-long series of special events that includes a celebratory outdoor Mass to be televised nationwide, Bishop Vann endorsed the hosting of a Christian Music Festival – “JOURNEY.” The five-hour evening concert, which will be streamed live globally on, will feature headliners Matt Maher, Colton Dixon, Phil Wickam, Andy Mineo and Jordan Feliz. Together, these performers represent the top-tier in Christian entertainment and have a huge fan base. “As a musician myself, I understand and appreciate the communicative power of music. Anniversary Day visitors to Christ Cathedral will have two musical treats. They will see and hear the magnificent 52 bell carillon perched atop the Crean Tower; and later attend JOURNEY – a concert performance by the best the Christian Rock genre has to offer,” said Bishop Vann.
