Share the Journey is a benefit concert performed live from Bellarmine Chapel at Xavier University!
In 2018, music producer, composer, and musician Bobby Fisher, along with other musicians, looked for ways to make a difference; but what could a small group of individuals do? What do musicians do? They make music! Through the joint efforts of Bobby Fisher, Bellarmine Chapel, and the music ministry of the Pierson-Young Project, Share the Journey: A Concert for Compassion was born. The partners created the event in 2018 as a benefit concert inviting local musicians to donate their talents to raise money for organizations that serve immigrants and their families. Thanks to the support of performers, ticket sales, and donors, the concerts have raised $50,000.
As Share the Journey: A Concert for Compassion enters its 6th year, the principles connected to the original Share the Journey campaign launched by Pope Francis in 2017, are more relevant than ever.
