I am surprised you, as a historian, do not appreciate the traditional Latin Mass. After all, it was the normative liturgy of the Church from around the 5th or 6th century up until the late 1960s. Thankfully Saint Anthony's (where I was baptized, made First Confession and received First Communion) is one of the churches where the traditional Latin Mass is offered:

Hi Kenneth; thank you for your somewhat critical comment: You surprise me when you say that as an historian I do not appreciate the "traditional" Latin Mass. The operating words here are "traditional" and "preferred." I'm surprised that you seem to feel that my preference is somehow inferior to the traditional Latin liturgy. Why be surprised that I as an historian prefer the Mass in English? I am fully aware of the Latin Mass. It is wonderful for those "traditionalists" who feel more comfortable with it. If I'm not mistaken, the English liturgy was in the early 1960's with the advent of Vatican II. Dominus Vobiscum.

Following are the dates and times of the 2012 Kuser Farm Gazebo concerts entitled,
"THE MUSIC WE GREW UP WITH."
Mark your calendars:
July 1,8,15,22,29 from 6 to 8 P.M. August 5 and 12 from 3 to 5 P.M.
Each week will feature "spotlight" songs, recalling the music of the "Gay 90's," 1940's, 1950's 1960's, 1970's, Classic country and western including "hillbilly" songs, Broadway, songs of faith, and other selections from my repertoire of over 600 songs. As referenced above, this presentation is a community event and should not be compared with the professionals such as my friend "Dick Chimes' Polka Band," "Benny Snyder," "The Lamplighters," and other much more professional entities who appeared here over the years. The township can no longer afford the high cost of these very talented professionals. Perhaps the professional musicians will return in the future when this bleak economy will allow for the luxury of hosting them. Look at these weekly presentations as an old fashioned sing and dance along you remember when you sang with the family at that old upright piano of your youth!

I CHOSE THE SLOGAN "Local history with a personal touch," AND THAT SLOGAN WILL BE MAINTAINED. WITH AN AVERAGE OF 350 TO 450 "HITS" PER DAY, THERE WILL BE ONE HALF OF A MILLION VISITORS BEFORE THE END OF APRIL!
THAT'S 500,000 VISITORS WHO MAKE THIS WEBSITE A REGULAR STOP DURING THEIR BUSY DAY.
