Lorraine Hess is a Catholic singer, songwriter, music minister, and recording artist born and raised in New Orleans. She grew up in a family of jazz and Cajun musicians, and her writing is strongly influenced by her South Louisiana heritage. She is a graduate of Louisiana State University, and holds a Master of Pastoral Studies degree from Loyola Institute for Ministry at Loyola University New Orleans. She has served the Church in music since age 16, and is currently directing music ministry at the Sunday evening liturgy at St. Catherine of Siena Parish in the Archdiocese of New Orleans.

Lorraine has released five solo albums of original liturgical and sacred music: We Shall Be Healed (2008); Child of God (2010); Cradle in Bethlehem (2012), produced by Ed Bolduc; and As I Pray (2015) and Glorify Him (2018), both produced by World Library Publications. Her music can also be found in WLP’s CD compilations More Voices as One I, II, and III.

Lorraine has performed and/or spoken at the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress, the National Association of Pastoral Musicians Convention, the National Conference on Catholic Youth Ministry, the International Catholic Stewardship Conference, the Mid Atlantic Congress, the Catholic Women of Faith Conference (Nashville), WINE (Women In the New Evangelization), New Orleans World Youth Day, the National Catholic Educators Association Convention & Expo, the Catholic Health Association Conference, the New Orleans Archdiocese Leadership Celebration, and at concerts, youth events, retreats, and liturgies throughout the country. She has also performed in John Angotti’s original musical JOB: The NOW Testament and has also appeared on the nationally televised shows The Power of Love, hosted by the late Fr. Michael Manning, S.V.D., and Live with Passion with Fr. Cedric Pisegna, C.P.
