Yesterday and today we have had Martin Doman to assist at the Advent Prayer Services and XLT evening programs. He has been writing, performing, and ministering as a Catholic Musician for over fifteen years. Since graduating from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 1996, Martin has led worship for Steubenville's nationwide youth conferences, the Boston Catholic Men's and Women's Conferences, and many others. He continues to travel across the country speaking and performing at concerts and conferences.
Martin has released six recordings of Catholic praise and worship music, and in 2002, Martin founded Christ MusicTM, a non-profit company dedicated to renewing the heart of the Church through Eucharistic praise and worship.
Martin has been featured on the Catholic TV network EWTN as a guest on both the "Backstage" and "Life on the Rock" programs. He is currently employed as the Director of Praise and Worship Music Ministry at Ave Maria University near Naples, FL. Martin and his wife, Charlene have six beautiful children.
Over 350 attended the evening of song and prayer. Students from the Marianist high schools even participated in the icebreakers and danced on the stage. But the highlight of the evening was during the final hour. During these final moments we experienced an Advent. This advent moment took place during the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament where the Lord ever so clearly entered into our hearts.
May the graces of advent continue to prepare us for the coming of Christ.
