The Flame heats up St. Pious X

Flame is looking to create some never-before-recorded music and are actively searching to buy song lyrics and music, he said.

They were recently interviewed by People magazine, appeared in a segment of "Good Morning America" and have signed a deal with a Washington, D.C., film company to have a documentary made about them.

He said after "Good Morning America" aired, they started getting requests to play all over the country and CD sales began to climb.

They also played at Eunice Kennedy Shriver's memorial service, according to information from the church.

Maria Patrick, president of the Parent School Association, said the band has played shows in the area and members of the PSA thought it would be fun to have them perform for the students.

"I knew they would love it," she said.

She said the faculty at the school began preparing the students by talking to them about the developmentally disabled, and the show helped deliver a message about perseverance.

Principal Dennis Mullahy said the show entertained the students and served as an example about achieving one's goals.

"The teachers talked about God's gifts and challenges and disabilities," he said.

He said the school tries to incorporate cultural events to broaden the children's education.

"We thought it was a great idea," he said. "The children love it."
