From Wednesday, March 25 to Friday, March 27, Paraguay-born singer/songwriter Silvia Mariella brought her musical talents and Catholic witness to Hispanic families in the Diocese of Camden in a series of concerts at three different parishes.

An estimated 500 people in total gathered at Our Lady Star of the Sea, Atlantic City; St. Bridget, Glassboro; and St. Joseph Pro-Cathedral, Camden for the concerts, entitled “Come and Fill Your Family with the Love of God.”

Silvia Mariella, an internationally recognized personality, led all in music, testimony, and meditation, speaking on the importance of reconciliation, the word of God and the Eucharist.

The three days “celebrated the gift of family,” said Andres Arango, Bishop’s Delegate for Hispanic Ministry, who noted that Hispanics of all ages, from grandparents to parents, to children and grandchildren, “had personal encounters with Christ.”
