Canticle Endorsement from Archbishop Cordileone

I have had the pleasure of working with Mary Ann Carr Wilson for more than 15 years in my roles as Auxiliary Bishop of San Diego, Bishop of Oakland and Archbishop of San Francisco.  In 2018 I tasked Mary Ann with the mission to build a youth schola.  She faithfully accepted my request and surpassed all expectations. She continues to consult and advise us as a sacred music consultant at Benedict XVI Institute. She is a faithful Catholic and gifted musician.  With her vast knowledge base in sacred music coupled with engaging instructional methods, she directs choirs, gives vocal coaching and has decades of experience as a soloist.  Mary Ann trained with world class mentors in Gregorian chant and holds the belief that we must preserve sacred music for future generations and across all ages.  The mission of Canticle is to help Catholic youth, their families, their churches and audiences to cultivate a connection to God through sacred music chant.  It is critical to steward, preserve, and pass on this uniquely Catholic tradition of ancient musical prayer so that younger generations will be able to carry it into the future.  I wholeheartedly endorse this holy organization and its Director, Mary Ann Carr Wilson.
