"Catholic Rock at its Finest"


Hailing from Portland, OR, The Thirsting offers cutting edge Catholic music. Under the direction of Daniel Oberreuter, The Thirsting proclaims the truths of the Catholic - faith from confession, and the Eucharist, to the Trinity, and Mary - all while rivaling secular acts in energy and emotion. The mission of The Thirsting is to inspire souls to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

As a live touring band, The Thirsting is known for high energy shows with a powerful Catholic message.   At a Thirsting concert, one is taken on a journey spiritually as a Catholic message is intermingled with a stunning rock performance. Many people are moved to greater repentance and a deeper love of Jesus and His Catholic Church. The band has played numerous diocesan youth rallies and concerts across the nation and has opened for major label acts.

The Current members of The Thirsting are:
