Maria and Kateri Thekaekara are two of eight children from a musically gifted Catholic family. This fall, Maria will be following in her father’s footsteps starting her undergraduate career at the Berklee College of Music, majoring in both performance and music education. In May 2014, Kateri will be graduating from the College of the Holy Cross with a bachelor’s in music. Both Maria and Kateri for the past five years have been cantors at St. Mary Parish in Waltham and St. Joseph Church in Wakefield. They have been a part of the yHope music ministry team and are looking forward to praising God in song at this year’s Catholic Family Festival and Conference!
