His new book THE SECRET OF THE SANTA BOX will be published November 7, 2017 by Treehouse Publishing Group. Based upon the actual method he and his wife Linda used when talking to their three children about Santa Claus, this beautifully illustrated Christmas poem will help other parents transition their children from a magical belief in Santa Claus to a true understanding of the meaning of Christmas.
A graduate of the University of Notre Dame, Fenoglio has served in numerous editorial, production and marketing positions in the Christian publishing industry for more than 30 years.
For six years he wrote the “Reel Life Journeys” columns for The Tennessee Register, the newspaper of the Diocese of Nashville. These columns explored the inspirational and spiritual themes found in films, faith and family. His columns were honored numerous times by the Catholic Press Association, including First Place designations for Best Regular Column for Culture, the Arts and Leisure in 2009 and 2010.
In addition to The Tennessee Register, Fenoglio served on the website, marketing, and editorial staffs for CCM Magazine and the CCM Update. For three years he was the editor and publisher of New Catholic Books & Media. He currently the managing editor of the denominational website for The United Methodist Church.
In the late 1980s, Fenoglio and friend Mary Corby recorded three cassette albums of Christian hymns: “Ave Maria and Other Songs of Devotion,” “O Sanctissima and Other Hymns of Praise,” and “Emanuel – The Music of Christmas.” In 2004, Fenoglio digitally remastered the Christmas album and re-released it on CD.
A former baritone in the Notre Dame Glee Club, Fenoglio currently serves as a cantor and music minister at St. Henry Church in Nashville. He enjoys singing the National Anthem at all kinds of events, especially at games and sporting events.
“When I sing the National Anthem in front of a large audience at a sporting event, I love to invite everyone to sing along with me. This is our nation’s song and it should be sung together. It’s not a song to ignore or cheer during or to use as an audition for a recording contract. No, it’s a song that speaks of our country’s strength and endurance in the face of bombardments and attacks. It’s a song that unites us and it should be sung together, loud and proud!” – Christopher Fenoglio
In 2017 Fenoglio moved closer to his goal to sing the National Anthem at all ballparks affiliated with the Chicago Cubs. All that is left is singing at Sloan Park in Mesa, Arizona, for a 2018 Spring Training game! Read more about Singing 4 the Cubs and watch videos in my blog posts.
