Saturday Mass Time Change?
Mar 20, 2015
The Question Posed
Recently, a proposal was brought to the Parish Pastoral Council to change our Saturday Mass from 5:00pm to 4:00pm. The Council seemed to be favorable to the change. However, I do want to get feedback from more people who attend that Mass. I have thought of some of the pros and cons.
- More time for an activity Saturday evening (dinner, a party, shopping, house-cleaning)
- Driving to and from Mass would be in daylight year-round
- Less time to complete work at home during the afternoon (grass cutting, gardening, car washing)
- Mass moves farther and farther from Sunday, the Lord's Day. When does it stop? (actually 4:00pm is as early as the Church allows.)
Please express your opinion.
A couple of people have called saying that they could not get the blog to work. Please understand that I have to approve your comment before it can be posted. That prevents someone from writing something offensive and having it appear on St. Frances Cabrini's website. Think about it; it really does have to be done that way.
