The following text may be used in promotion or to introduce Oddwalk at events:

Oddwalk Ministries consists of Shannon Cerneka, Orin Johnson, their families, friends, and all of you! Shannon and Orin officially founded Oddwalk Ministries in 2004 after many years of a more informal existence. It exists to help young and old alike embrace life as Eucharistic people through fun, upbeat, and interactive music and witnessing.

Oddwalk has performed in front of thousands of teenagers and adults in such venues as NCYC and NCCYM comedy clubs, World Youth Day catechetical sessions, and several diocesan youth rallies and conferences. 2008 marked their first appearances at the Youth Day of the L.A. Religious Education Congress and at the NCEA National Convention. Oddwalk has also performed in parish settings, helped lead retreats and prayer services, and has made countless other appearances in a wide variety of venues.

After recording several self-produced CDs, in 2007 Oddwalk agreed to record and publish with GIA Publications, Inc. Their first CD with GIA, an album of music for prayer and liturgy titled “Walk Away Different” was released in November of that year, and many Oddwalk songs are now published – several in GIA’s new contemporary hymnal titled “Cross Generation.” Their second CD with GIA, “Alright Now,” was released in the fall of 2009, featuring the funny, silly side of Catholicism. Their 2015 CD, “Mercy at Work” features music for prayer, liturgy, faith-sharing, and community, and is a great resource for praying over justice, peace, and action.

Oddwalk Ministries brings a message of community, participation, and mission to every group. Visit www.oddwalkministries.com or keytarsuperstar.com.
