Deacon Chuck Stevens has been involved in parish-level music ministry at a number of Roman Catholic parishes in various parts of Canada since the mid-1970's. During his studies toward becoming a deacon for the Roman Catholic Diocese of London, Ontario (Canada) , his music ministry continued to evolve. Following a year-end retreat in 2004, he began combining his prayer and reading of Sacred Scripture with music composition, finding an expression of prayer that he felt compelled to share with people as a means of helping them contemplate and draw closer to God. Chuck was ordained a permanent deacon, along with ten classmates, on November 3rd,2007 , the feast of St. Martin de Porres.
