I love to go to morning mass. However, last week our priest was away getting rabies shots. There was a bat loose in the rectory and he felt he had been scratched. The bat was never apprehended.
This week I don't know what happened. I've driven to church the past 2 mornings to find no mass. Because I don't attend weekend masses at my own church, I didn't have a bulletin to let me know there wouldn't be masses. Usually I pick one up at daily mass and Father will announce at daily masses if there is a change for the following week. I better call someone today and see what's up.
I love receiving the Eucharist as often as possible. I love being in Church. I love adoration. Our God is so good and so merciful. Where would we be without his grace?
Hi, my Spark Friend! Thanks for not giving up on me while I was "AWOL" so to speak! I am back on Spark People. I regained some weight from all the post-flooding stress-eating, I must confess! I am resolved to get back on my TREK to good health! Spark HUGS, Robyn 84 days ago
Your church bazaar sounded awesome. You must have a fairly large church. Years ago I think we had around 300 families, but now maybe 1/3 of those are gone. We've been through a few changes and a few problems and some people don't care to work through things. They just leave.
We had no vendors, but parishioners donated items for sale and for raffles. We also have a lady that makes rosaries and she had those exhibited for sale. The glass rosaries (which I had never seen before) sold for $12. I had previously purchased 14 of the plastic bead rosaries from her for my 7th grade CCD class - I teach at another church in the next town over. I was very tired when I got home, but very happy to have been able to serve.
