Bio

A native of Puerto Rico, Damaris Thillet studied at Temple University in Philadelphia. She frequently collaborated with her late husband, Diego Correa, in music ministry. As a team, they served the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and the Diocese of Camden, New Jersey, for many years. Serving as the northeast regional representative for the Instituto Nacional Hispano de Liturgia, Damaris is also one of the founders and current president of the East Coast Hispanic Pastoral Musicians Association. During the 2016 United States visit by Pope Francis, she was invited to lead the Spanish choir at a Mass to close the World Meeting of Families.

Damaris and Diego have two collections of liturgical music in Spanish, Eso Me Basta, Señor and Del Pesebre a la Cruz, their OCP debut. Inspired by the scriptures and marked by evangelical zeal, their songs feature the unique musical styles and rhythms of Puerto Rico. Damaris’s compositions can also be found in ¡Vive Tu Fe! and Flor y Canto. After the passing of her husband, Damaris completed her most recent collection Todo Lo Podemos en Dios, with songs that bring consolation and hope in times of grief, loss or mourning.

Currently, Damaris is the associate director of the Office of Worship and Christian Initiation and the Director of Music & Liturgy at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception at Diocese of Camden.
