Sam,
I'm so glad to hear that I won't be on my own with this. I was doing some looking around the night I put that post up and mapquest had a few churches but no mass times for them. From the looks of the map and where Patriots Theater is supposed to be, St. Francis of Assisi church was the closest I saw (a few blocks away) and the info for it is pasted below (got it from the link you gave in your post). There are a lot of other churches of course but this was the only one I really looked at. I am going to drop them an e-mail and make sure the times are correct/updated etc. and Im sure the priest there can tell me how close they are to Patriots theater or if their church would be the best choice for us. Well, we still have plenty of time to look into this but at least we got the ball rolling. Any body else have any ideas?

Just a short note to one of the comments earlier on...

Fred's brother (that's me!) is a bass/baritone. :lol:

Hey, King, it's saturday already,and i don';t know if you'll get this message, but my dad and I will be attending mass at St. Raphael's at 5 PM sunday, so you can come with us if you want. We decided we really didn't want to miss flower kings, after all we've heard about them, and it would be too nerve wracking to try to go in the morning glass hammer is playing, especially considering that these New Jersey weirdos don't even label their roads (and they say St. Paul was designed by a bunch of drunken irishmen!)... Yeah, we got really lost on our way from the airport. But whatever. We have a computer, and thus mapquest, and as long as most of the roads are labeled, we should find our way to St. Raphael's just fine on sunday.

If there;s anybody who knows King, could they please pass this on to her?

This has puzzled me for quite some time, and I can't find any answer to this on this forum. How were people selected for inclusion in the NFest choir?

I had been helping Rob and Chad (the heads of Nearfest) and rob asked me if i could sing, since there was a band that needed people for their perfomance. =) very cool.

I asked the Rumpzas to join. Fred asked his brother. Otherwise, it was all done by NEARfest and April.
I cooked up the original idea and ran it by Rob (NEARfest) who jumped on it.

I was talking with Rob one day and he said, "Oh by the way, Steve asked me to invite you in the choir. Can you sing?" Glad I wasn't invited to sing with Magma, as I flunked out out of high school Klingon....
Wheee!

Flunking out of Klingon is something you should be proud of. Were you in the choir?

I wanna say it was either when we walked out on stage for soundcheck or during the actual set, can't remember which. In either event, I would've landed in Matt's drum kit and quite possibly took out Eric in the process. Ah, mayhem....
Wheee!
