Emily Strand & Eric Styles
Meet Father Rivers (Part 1)
Today, Emily Strand and Eric Styles, cohosts of the podcast, Meet Father Rivers talk to us about Fr. Clarence Rivers a hidden yet essential figure in Catholic history of the United States. We learn about how he influenced so many through his ministry as a priest, liturgist, composer, author, speaker, teacher, and mentor. He strove to infuse the Catholic liturgy with the many gifts from the African American culture. Emily and Eric also share how Fr. Rivers influenced them and the way in which they view the role of music in the liturgy.
