    Since St. Mary’s is Liberal College Central, can it be assumed that this year’s “Messiah” will be about Barry Obama? Next year it can be about Shillary!

    Wow. A public event that still recognizes the ONE true God????

    No muzzies or Ramada BS in good ole St. Mary’s! Oh sorry – tolerance and all…

    This should be GREAT for those few left – who understand the truth – and listen to this type of music.

    I am glad this is being done – even if it has a Catholic taint, it should be a nice family evening.
