The Mary Magdalene Celebration

I received great news today from a friend, Minerva González, who is helping me get the space for this year's Mary Magdalene Celebration. She has secured the room where it will take place! It has taken about six months to obtain it, but it seems as if it is finally a reality. Here is the proposal for the event, which could change a little as the event takes shape. Raquel might not be able to make it, but I am already working on "plan b" for this part of the evening. If Raquel cannot be here, I will find 7 voices to sing her songs. Please save the date if you can be in NYC on July 22! I really hope to be able to share with you this celebration! Mary Magdalene Celebration July 22, 2016 6-10 p.m

(Save the date!) I wish that my Magdalene partner and muse, Raquel Z. Rivera, could be here to sing her Magdalene songs, but even if she is not, we will have our Mary Magdalene Celebration and play her songs. Some friends have already agreed to join me and bring their own creations to make the celebration even more special. I will share more about this once I have a
