The group, including composer-performers Dan Schutte, Tim Manion, Bob Dufford S.J., John Foley S.J., and Roc O'Connor S.J., together with the late John Kavanaugh, S.J., met and began composing music together as young Jesuit scholastics in the early 1970s while at Saint Louis University.
The group’s songs, including “One Bread, One Body” and “Earthen Vessels,” have become staples of Catholic liturgies, and the St. Louis Jesuits, as a group, have recorded 35 albums and several anthology collections.
