The Arts at St. Joseph welcomes Dave Rowley and Ryan Sather in concert with St. Joseph’s Holy Rollers, Sunday, May 6 as they present “That’s what He said”–when the message of the King of Kings crosses musical paths with the disciples of Rock & Roll! The free concert will begin at 4:30 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, 1305 Okoboji Ave., Milford, Iowa. A reception follows in the Parish Center. A Free Will Donation will be accepted. Dave and Ryan, along with the St. Joseph Holy Rollers will unite their vocal and instrumental talents in bringing a high energy program of contemporary music. The two groups will join together to share their inspiring message of God’s love, hope, joy and peace.

Sather and Rowley will share vocals with the Holy Rollers. Instrumentally, Ryan will be on keyboard while Dave will switch between guitar, harmonica and ukulele for the concert.
The Holy Rollers have blessed St. Joseph Catholic Church with their affirming song and music since 2011. The Contemporary Music group includes Jennifer Johnson, Karess Knudtson, Tyler Pederson, Greg Forney, Tim Schumacher, and until just recently, Brian Moore. “Love has no boundaries” explains Jennifer Johnson. ”Jesus spoke unendingly about love…sharing, feeling and acting with love…to everyone no matter who they are. The songs we play (St. Joseph Holy Rollers) teach us how to care for others. Love transcends all belief and harmony together is the ultimate goal.”
