The Scholas » Sacred Heart University Schola

In 1968 Kathleen met her musical soul mate, Evelyn Avoglia, while both were undergraduates at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut.

As musicians of SHU Campus Ministry and in collaboration with Chaplain Father John Giuliani, Kathleen and Ev created a repertoire of new songs for worship and prayer that gave voice to the vitality of the liturgical renewal of The Second Vatican Council.

With musical companions Gina Sader-Rubenstein and Mary Liguori, the Sacred Heart Schola produced the first recordings of Kathleen’s and Evelyn’s music which showcase the novelty and freshness of two gifted young composers who have made a unique contribution to a contemporary music of praise that echoes in a new voice the lyric poetry of the psalms: “An Offering of Songs: Hearts that Seek the Lord” (remastered as “The Servant’s Heart”), and “Of Thanks and Wonder”.
