Now is our chance to choose the right side. God is holding back to give us that chance. It won’t last forever. We must take it or leave it. – C.S. Lewis
I am glad to see that attention is once again being given to the important issue at hand... keeping us apprised of what is going on with the church and the future. I've read enough of the devotional stuff....get that at All Saints every Sunday that Fr. Breen and Fr. Lou do not preach. Not saying it is not important but just that I thought this blog was about saving our parish.Hope you keep the cause alive and informative to us. Thank you for all the time and effort you do put into the blog.
I support the SOP as well, just wondering if it is really necessary or appropriate to be taking pictures during the mass.
Considering the mass is televised, I suppose a still picture is alright.
Not to worry, if the administrator has his way there won't be any more photos in this church at all.
televised mass is at St. Mary's...crowds don't look very good up there on Tv
Sometimes I really do try to take on the mindset of a few just to make myself feel better and say to myself, it's just a building .....but NO, it never works, it's not just a building....it's somuch more.
I agree with the above note. So,Get those letters written to Providence Housing and Rev. Joseph Hart and the Bishop! We need to keep alive the strong need to keep the church and church community in tact.See addresses in Newsletter
I visited home again for Mother’s Day and the Church was indeed packed, which is not what I noticed most. Although it was nice to see a full church of all ages and ethnic backgrounds, I have grown used to that at St. Vincent’s. What I notice is what I always notice… that St. Vincent de Paul Church is a beautiful Church. Everything looks so nice and it remains the Church of my childhood and of so many important events in my life. The Church itself does not show the tension or the structural decay of the Parish. The Church as a structure is fine and we all know it. The floors glow as the sun through the beautiful stained glass windows hit it. The statues are welcoming and gorgeous. We know them all and they depict the Saints we have know our whole lives. Our Blessed Mother invites us in and forward to her. Our Savior on the cross in all his awesome beauty bows his head in humility and respect; as so should we. So where is the decay and lack of structural integrity? We all know this as well. It is the administration and their agenda which does not align itself with the desire of the Parish or that the of Church Universal. Tom Kane
