Juno Award-winning Christian musician Steve Bell will perform in Red Deer this weekend to help St. Mary’s Catholic Church get a youth ministry going.

The Winnipeg-based singer/songwriter will give a solo acoustic concert Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s, 6 McMillan Ave. Tickets are $15 from the church, Scott’s Parables on Gasoline Alley, or online at www.stevebell.com.

Proceeds from the concert will go towards starting up a full-time youth ministry at the church, which serves 2,600 families and is the largest Catholic parish in the archdiocese, outside the Edmonton area. The church has set a goal of raising $75,000 by the end of October and has already achieved more than a third that through donations and pledges.

Bell is among the best-known Christian musicians in Canada. His extensive song catalogue from 16 albums includes Deep Calls to Deep, Eventide and Fresh and Green. Among his many awards are two Junos.

Before embarking on his solo career, Bell was a long-time member of the group Elias, Schritt, and Bell. In 1989 he founded the independent recording label Signpost Music. His first solo album, Comfort My People, was released on Signpost that same year.

Bell is as well known for his memorable stories as his great music. Everyone is invited to enjoy both in an intimate setting during Saturday’s concert. For more information, call 403-347-3114.
