Welcome Returning Catholics
First, we welcome you. We recognize you are considering a significant step on your spiritual journey. Some see this as a journey back to their spiritual home; others are looking for reconciliation with God and the Church. Whatever your reason for being away, we have missed you and celebrate your desire to take another look. See more information for returning Catholics.

WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH - CATHOLICS SING
KIDS and ADULTS from ages 6–106 are invited to join ONE of my new ON LINE choirs. It’s easy as I. 2. 3. And it’s FREE! It’s my understanding that this 1.2.3. method has never been offered before. Read on and you’ll see why.
Here’s what happens IN MY 1. 2. 3. SINGING METHOD when you sign up:
1: Each week I’ll send you an Mp3 of songs to practice. Songs that I know you’ll love to sing. To make it 1.2.3.simple for you, I will send you a vocal version of each tune and an instrumental version that you can add your own voice to.
2: Each week, you will send me a recorded version of you singing with the instrumental tracks.
3: I will send you tips on how to improve. What you can do in return is to tell all your friends about the 1.2.3. System so when church resumes we’ll have something humongous to sing about.
