Franciscan Sisters Feature a Summer of Songs for Sister Water
Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity
June 11, 2021

GREEN BAY, June 11, 2021 /Standard Newswire/ -- Through Summer 2021 Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity will be streaming special songs that explore and celebrate 'Sister Water' as a sacramental and rejuvenating element

The series kicks off with three unique and refreshing songs from the Steel Bridge Songfest, this year virtually held on June 12.

In the late 1990s, a grassroots group formed with the intention of saving Sturgeon Bay's historic Michigan Street Bridge from the scheduled wrecking ball. In 2005 as the 501(c)3 non-profit Citizens for Our Bridge (CFOB) recruited some like-minded musicians to create Steel Bridge Songfest. Combining preservation with creative collaboration for nearly a decade and a half, Steel Bridge Songfest - or simply, "Steel Bridge" - continues to increase public appreciation for the notorious structure while enriching its historic surroundings and supporting a growing creative community. Songwriters and musicians from around the world, including Jackson Browne, James McMurtry, and hundreds of others have come to the community, written their songs, and donated their efforts.

With the bridge officially "saved," the non-profit CFOB continues under the name Steel Bridge Creative Foundation, honoring the bridge as a living symbol of historic preservation combined with creative collaboration.
