Sister Act: Galway Poor Clares release new song
Sr. Colette, Sr Faustina and Sr. Consilio

The Poor Clares of Galway have released a song 'Calm the Soul' with the hopes it will help others.

The song was released on Thursday and was produced in collaboration with professional vocalists and musicians.

An offline launch took place at the monastery in Galway earlier in the day.

Sr. Consilio Fitzgerald, the founder of the Cuan Mhuire addiction treatment centres was invited by the nuns to launch the song.

She said some of the people the nuns work with found it deeply moving.

Sr. Colette, Abbess of the Poor Clare Monastery in Galway said “it’s God’s business what happens with the song and if it makes the charts it would be great.

"If it goes viral that would be great too. Our hope is that the message of the song will reach those who need a soul-lift or maybe who are just struggling to keep afloat in the ordinary everyday grind.”
