Who Are We?
We are a sponsored ministry of the Congregation of St. Joseph and are located in the LaGrange Ministry Center in LaGrange Pk. IL. Our beginnings are closely linked to
Mary Southard’s Earth Calendar back in
the mid-70’s which we still create and publish. Later, music, cards and
sculptures by other sisters were added to a one-page
flyer that has now become a full-color catalog.
A Call Center, Ministry Offices and Fulfillment Center
are all in the Center along with music and
art studios. Our circle has expanded now to include
other artists, musicians and writers who share
our vision of the Arts as a voice for unity,
peace, hope and healing in the world.
Many churches and organizations
use Kathy Sherman’s music in their programs.
Please e-mail your request to our customer service
manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Include the way in which you plan to use the
song (s) and approximate date and # of copies
(if applicable) Individual Occasion use (Weddings,
baptism) $10.00 (no charge for funerals, ordinations/religious
professions). Church/Org programs, liturgies.
conferences, etc.: $15.00 per occasion.
For commercial and mechanical licenses and other music uses,
In the spirit of our mission of
unity we are able to share some of the art where
artists have given us permission. Send your request
Include your Contact
information with phone # along with a brief
explanation of how the material would be used.
Upon review and authorization, a permission form
and guidelines will be forwarded to your E-mail
address or a request for more information will be sent. For
some uses there is a modest licensing fee as
with music and that will be communicated as well.
Often we ask that you collaborate with us by
sharing our catalog with your organization. For commercial
uses, please inquire.
If you feel your work is in
sync with our mission, your may submit samples
or photos. Please do not send original art as
we cannot return submissions. Please include
your contact information including an e-mail
address, if available. We cannot commit to publishing
your work but we do promise to give it attention
and consideration. We often work months in advance
of publication. We will send you an e-e-mail
to acknowledge receipt of your submission right
away, but cannot commit to if and how it might
be used at that point. If an upcoming project
seems a match for your work we will contact you.
Thank you for understanding our small staff situation!
