Thanks for the heads-up!
Dang! 11:40 and the lower parking lot is 3/4 full already. Going to be crowded!
Please give us a report when you have a chance.
There is spirit. Not sure I would brave it even if I was in the area. I just don’t do three little children at mass without the hubs.
Awesome mass. Place was packed.beautiful singing. Crowded enough where the tour buses had to park on the street. Hope there will be another one sooner than 45 years! Anyway I’m at the Dubliner waiting for a Guinness.
bttt - I don’t like to take the byos to Mass by myself if I can avoid it.
Thank you for the report. And enjoy your stout.
My friend and I got there at about 10:45 a.m. There were plenty of parking spots in the lot.
We were at the Dubliner. Sorry we didn’t get to meet you.
Likewise. I think next time, I'll bring a sign for the table: "FReepers welcome here" or the like.
I would appreciate any information anyone could tell me about how/when to attend one of these Masses -- or how to contact someone who does know the times (either a priest who says the Mass or a layperson who attends).
If you do not want to post on the thread, please Freepmail me.
Thanks in advance.
So was I. Sorry that Bp. Slattery's voice went out on him. Would have loved to hear another homily like yesterday's homily. Ah well.
Man! I went to the Dubliner, roamed around a bit to see if I could spot anyone, and then sat down by the door. I also went to the Sunday Mass at St. Mary’s.
