2021 Performance Schedule

Happy New Year!!

Every Sunday morning, at St. Mary's of the Assumption Church in Deal, NJ

I'll be raising my voice to the heavens at the 10:00 AM mass. You don't need to be Catholic, or even religious, it's just nice to hang in God's house for an hour. Stop in and recharge your batteries.
