Diocese of Richmond’s Official Bicentennial Hymn

We are pleased to announce that an official bicentennial hymn has been selected!

The Bicentennial Task Force held a competition in the spring of 2019 to compose a hymn that would be used for liturgical settings in all parishes, schools, and campus ministries in the diocese to celebrate the bicentennial.  The winning hymn, “We Shine Like Stars in the World,” was chosen from nearly 25 entries.
