Te Deum Ministries is a religious organization created to address the degradation of our culture and the lack of spirituality that exists all around us today by bringing Christ’s message of faith, hope and love to as many teens, young adults and families as possible.
“Array of Hope,” a project of Te Deum Ministries, is a wide-ranging concert experience that features multiple musical acts, motivational speakers and thought-provoking film presentations that joyously provide a counterweight to the negative media surrounding today’s society. It brings Christ’s message of faith, hope and love to its audiences. It especially celebrates an appreciation of the family that is so often denigrated in today’s music, movies, TV, radio and the Internet. The show’s key themes are the sanctity of life, the importance of God in the family and the loving support prayer can bring to the spiritual and emotional development of us and our children.
Understanding the negative influence of cultures throughout the world, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI called for a New Evangelization for the Transmission of the Faith. He directed Catholics to examine the journey made thus far, and to resume with fresh impetus the urgent work of the evangelization of today’s world. Following in his footsteps, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, in its strategic plan for 2013-2016 titled “The New Evangelization/Journey With Christ: Faith-Worship-Witness“, is exhorting Catholics to develop a deeper relationship with Christ by calling them to participate in a more vibrant community life that focuses on faith, worship and witness. Array of Hope specifically addresses in their performances, each aspect of the bishops’ plan:
Faith: Array of Hope contributes to this portion of the bishops’ plan by strengthening Catholics’ relationship with Christ through powerful music that glorifies Him and His Church; film presentations with inspirational messages that challenge us to deepen our faith; and enlightening talks focused on Christ’s message of faith, hope and love.
Worship: Array of Hope provides uplifting music and talks that help turn our hearts and minds toward Christ and develop a greater appreciation for our vocational calling.
Witness: Array of Hope’s performers deliver stimulating talks and presentations that remind us of the importance of being personal witnesses to Christ and transforming society through living and sharing the beauty of the Catholic faith, with a focus on marriage and the sanctity of all human life.
The ultimate goal of Array of Hope is to plant the seed of the love of the Lord, Jesus Christ, in the hearts of all Christians, thereby creating a resistance to the negative influence of today¹s secular society. And to do so through a joyous, entertaining program that they will remember throughout their lives.
