SeraphFest 2015 rocked Mater Dei's Memorial Hall on March 13th in Middletown, NJ. Gratitude to all those who joined together to make this show happen from the performers to the vendors to the student and parent volunteers. Thanks to Mater Dei teacher, Cindy Dwyer, for working with the MAI to take this idea off the ground and for being amazing to work with.
Good Luck to Mater Dei Prep High School! Hope to see you again next year for SeraphFest 2016!
