On our way to England; Pray for us

by Steve Ray on July 31, 2011

Janet and I are boarding our plane to London. I have eleven talks to give at three conferences.

All the conferences are working to re-convert the United Kingdom back to the Catholic Church.

We will be renting a car with the steering wheel on the passenger side and driving on the wrong side of the road – for that Janet REALLY asks for your prayers :-)

We will keep you updated as the two weeks progress.

IMG_3217Most Rock n’ Rollers end up badly in old age, if they ever get to old age.

I spent time again with one this weekend that has a done very well – Dion DiMucci of the Dion and Belmonts from the late 50′s and early 60′s – and beyond. He is famous for Run Around Sue, Donna the Prima Dona, Abraham Martin and John, I Wonder Why, The Wanderer — and over a dozen songs that hit the t\Top 40 List!

He is still great, right at it, and loved by millions. He is a great guy with a a great wife. In 1989 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

This is a picture with me taken at Steubenville this weekend with Dion. He was there to announce his new book and to tell the story of his life, especially his return to the Catholic Church.

Wikipedia states, “Now a practicing Roman Catholic, Dion pursues prison ministry and reaches out to men going through addiction recovery. He is also a member of the American Board of Directors of Renewal Ministries. He lives in Boca Raton, Florida, and New York City.”

You can visit his website here.

Here is Dion in the 50′s:
