About the Book

Glass Collage is an intriguing memoir of Eva Gelini’s faith journey as a Catholic musician. Eva succeeded in her childhood dream of becoming a Catholic Church organist and, later, a Catholic liturgical music director. Along the way, she collected many cuts, scars, and bruises from the church leadership. In addition, when the scandals associated with the Catholic Church came to light, her 30-year career and livelihood abruptly concluded, leaving her jobless, defenseless, and forced into a midlife career change. While attempting to nourish her wounds and desiring peace and counsel, Eva prayed that God would guide her in the right direction. And He did, leading her to a place she never dreamed of being.
