Music in Massachusetts

Nick Alexander writes:

I am involved with the Proud 2 Be Catholic concert series in Salem, Massachusetts.

It is the second in an annual concert that will provide entertainment, mass, Eucharistic adoration and activities for all ages. Top Catholic artists Fr. Stan Fortuna, Tony Melendez, Martin Doman, Bob Rice and many others will be present.

Because of the scandals, donations for such an event have been way down. But despite the scandals, we want to make a statement of pride in our Catholic faith, especially now in the torrent of the current storm.

It is entirely lay-run, and such events provide a wonderful venue to reach teenagers and Gen-Xrs, and anybody who’s interested in quality music and fun.

Donations are way-down this year. If not enough funds come through, the concert would have to be cancelled. I’m a terrible begger, but if there are some people who are looking for a lay Catholic non-profit organization that will help return Catholic pride within Massachusetts, I could not think of a better opportunity.
