Another very busy week. This time it was our Parish Celebration for Our Lady of the Rosary. Wednesday evening a beautiful vigil Mass in the Church with combined English speaking and Vietnamese congregations. Before the Mass about 12 little Vietnamese girls did a sweet, formal, oriental dance in traditional costume and presented flowers and candles to the Blessed Virgin. The Vietnamese choir sang beautifully for the Mass.
Thursday school Mass for the feast day with a funeral Mass in the afternoon and a Pot Luck Parish Supper in the evening with music by St Joseph’s Catholic School Choir. Squeezed into that was Mass at SJCS, several meetings and going to see Benedict (our Sr in HS) get second place in a local HS Cross Country meet.
Today school Mass at SJCS, a full day at school while at the parish Eucharistic Adoration all day. This was concluded at 6pm with a little procession to an outdoor altar and Benediction. Very nice as the sun was setting to worship the Lord in simplicity and peace. Tomorrow OLR school Fall Festival and the Parish Celebration concludes with Mass on Sunday followed by breakfast provided by the Knights of Columbus.
