Rob Kopanda & Sister Geralyn Spaulding, OSB
Rob Kopanda is a man whose lifelong quest is to live the will of God, and has taken extensive religious retreats towards this aim. He has studied comparative religions and is the author of "Ageless Wisdom." As a singer/songwriter, he has written dozens of songs enjoyed by fans. In addition to creating music, poetry, and inspirational posters, he has designed and fabricated beautiful custom signs and served in various capacities in the field of human services as a volunteer, program director, and one of the founding board members of a Christmas charity. Sister Geralyn and Rob Kopanda sang and performed together as members of the monastic scola, a choir for special occasions at the Pecos Benedictine Monastery.
Sister Geralyn Spaulding, O.S.B. is a wonderfully talented and devoted Catholic Benedictine nun who has served God as a member of the Pecos Benedictine Monastery for 20 years. Her deeply moving melodies and delicate acoustic guitar accompaniments have inspired numerous guests and residents of the monastery. She recently transferred to the Benedictine Monastery of Hawaii, where her "ora et labora" (prayer and work) includes music for the daily office, Eucharist, weekly Bible study and other ceremonies, hospitality to guests, spiritual direction, and participation in Basic Christian Community retreats and the weekly Cell group sponsored by the monastery. She is quickly catching the Aloha Spirit, trying new foods and tackling the tongue-twisting vocabulary of the islands.
Sister Geralyn and Rob have united their music and efforts to create "Praise God!," a fundraising CD which will benefit the the Pecos Benedictine Monastery through their donated royalties. These are actually two integrated communities, Monks of Our Lady of Guadalupe Abbey and Sisters of Mercy and Peace Monastery. Their hardworking and dedicated monks and nuns are committed to living the Word of God and bringing spiritual direction and healing into the lives of those who visit. The touching 6-song "Praise God!" CD, represented by the two songs submitted onto this site, is available for sale at www.songpeddler.com (various religious categories). If you like their music, please help them help the Pecos Monastery, which has done so much for others!
