The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity Feature Chris Hillman’s ‘Drifting’ As Their October Song of the Month

GREEN BAY, Wis., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity feature Chris Hillman's "Drifting" as their October Song of the Month, with a free download at http://www.fscc-calledtobe.org/living/ on their "Franciscanized World" page.

The Franciscan Sisters recognize Chris Hillman during this month of celebrating St. Francis, drifter and dreamer. A pioneer of the genre known as Country Rock, Hillman's career has spanned five decades. He's been instrumental in developing and popularizing contemporary American music as an original member of the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers with Gram Parsons. More recently, he scored a number of hits with the Desert Rose Band.

"Drifting" is a gentle reflection on a world "where no one had to be first, drifting in a dream of love's surrender." According to Hillman, "Drifting""basically describes a "Heavenly Environment" or aspiring for "Heaven on Earth": "We tried to convey a Christian message, as do most of the songs I recorded on 'The Other Side' CD."

"We want to present our life as a viable option. Personal invitation is always best. However, we're convinced that real conversations of discernment can begin by using the language of images and music," said Sr. Julie Ann Sheahan, OSF, Directress of Vocations for the Franciscan order.

Established in 1869, the Roman Catholic Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity serve in Catholic health care, education and parish ministries in 13 U.S. dioceses (Green Bay, Superior, Milwaukee, Phoenix, Tucson, Honolulu, Chicago, Marquette, Jackson, Lincoln, Omaha, Columbus and Steubenville).
