Crusaders of Mary Immaculate
Rocco is also part of Crusaders of Mary Immaculate (COMI). It’s an apostolate made up of college-age, young-adult, & some not-so-young-adult faithful Catholics who share the same spirituality as Spread the Blaze: 100% Eucharistic, Marian, & loyal to the Holy Father. They work w/ middle-school youth, high-school youth, college-age youth, & young adults.
Crusaders of Mary Immaculate also work in conjunction w/ Spread the Blaze apostolate by striving to provide ordered (as opposed to disordered) praise & worship music outside of Holy Mass; they provide traditional sacred music for Holy Mass. COMI strives to use the guidelines set down by Fr. Basil Nortz, ORC in his excellent CD-set entitled ‘Music and Morality’ & also those set down by Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted in his excellent written series entitled ‘Singing the Mass’. All members of Crusaders of Mary Immaculate are VIRTUS® certified.
