Every summer my brother-in-law Peter Campbell and a group of volunteers put together the Proud2BCatholic concert. It is a lay event; it is not put on or sponsored by the archdiocese. It depends completely on donations and ticket sales. The concert has been a big success and has grown every year of the past four years and attracts people from all over the East Coast as well as nationally recognized musicians.
The event is now getting the local recognition it deserves. Archbishop Sean O’Malley has agreed to be the main celebrant at the Mass. His office said he will be coming back from Franciscan University of Steubenville’s youth conferences at that time and he should still be on fire from that.
I’m looking forward to this event.
