I first came across Fr Stan on a youth programe called Youth Cafe and I really enjoyed his fresh uptodate apporaoch to faith.

“Fr. Stan Fortuna has been playing music since the 2nd grade when his father gave him his first instrument for Christmas – a red electric guitar! His love for music grew into early adulthood as he began the life long journey of learning the art of improvising by practicing countless hours and playing lots of sessions in the New York area. It was during that time that Fortuna began hearing his true calling in life and was eventually ordained a Roman Catholic priest. He is one of the eight original members of the Community of Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, a community established in the Archdiocese of New York under the jurisdiction of John Cardinal O’Connor in 1987. Fr. Stan established Francesco Productions (www.francescoproductions.com) in 1987, a non-profit company which produces his music, teaching tapes and videos. He established the non-profit recording company to assist the poor and to evangelize Christ’s Word through his music. From Contemporary Christian to Jazz, Folk, Reggae and Rap, this incredible musician and composer has produced music for the enjoyment of all ages and walks of life. He has released numerous CD’s of original music and standards, arranged in his very special style. All proceeds from sales go to the Community’s hands-on work with the poor.” this is his biography from his website which can be found at http://www.francescoproductions.com/
