[St. Mary’s Episcopal Church]  Members of the Vestry of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in,Stone Harbor, New Jersey, along with the interim rector, the Rev. Susan Osborne-Mott, Oct. 30 announced the appointment of David J. Condo as music director of the church.

Condo, a resident of North Wildwood, comes to St. Mary’s with over 20 years experience administering liturgical arts programs with particular strengths in organ performance, choral and hand-bell training, and program management experience, most recently with St. Simeon’s Episcopal Church by-the-Sea in North Wildwood. 

In addition, Condo is also an accomplished organ recitalist, having performed throughout the United States and Europe.

“Our Vestry is very excited to have David on board. As a life-long Episcopalian, not only will he bring an added dimension to the worship experience of our parishioners, but we are confident he will expand our musical offerings to the church and the community, including the addition of a youth choir and bell choir. He studied with our interim organist, Dennis Cook, for a period of time and we are pleased to have a continuity of talented musicians as part of our worship community. He is planning a joyous musical celebration for Advent and Christmas to which the public will be invited,” said Larry Schmidt, senior warden.

Condo will “take the bench” at St. Mary’s on Sunday, Nov. 3, for the 10 a.m. Eucharist. All are invited to welcome Condoand share in our worship.
