May 14, 2023: 6th Sunday of Easter
April 30, 2023: 4th Sunday of Easter
It’s been too long since I’ve posted, I know. Very busy behind the scenes. I think we’re starting to come out of all that, though, and maybe – just maybe – I’ll be able to start posting more soon. Until then, here’s this weekend’s Mass. To be honest, I feel like I did a better job on Saturday evening, but this is what it is.
From Sheep to Shepherd Ep 3
My parish has recently launched it’s own podcast, cleverly titled From Sheep to Shepherd. It’s still in it’s nascent stages, but we’ve got big hopes and plans for it. Anyway, I recently made a guest appearance on said podcast, telling my vocation story. Reckon I’ll share it here in case you’re interested.
April 2, 2023: Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion
We did the Solemn Procession to start this Mass, meaning the blessing of the palms and the proclamation of the Gospel of the Lord’s entry into Jerusalem was all done in the back (and therefore not on camera). But you should still be able to hear it.
This is a long one, because the Passion takes a while to read. Also, communion took forever. Huge crowd today.
March 19, 2023: 4th Sunday of Lent
I ought to get some kind of award for posting this so quickly.
March 12, 2023: 3rd Sunday of Lent
This was an odd week. Didn’t have much in mind going into Saturday night, but I feel like I did well with it. The early Mass on Sunday morning was not good…between 2 funerals Saturday morning, the school fundraiser Saturday night, and the stupid time change, I was really dragging. So the 11:00 Mass, which you get here, was something of a personal compromise. It is what it is.
March 5, 2023: 2nd Sunday of Lent
A little frustrated in posting this, simply because I have not yet found an easy way to trim this down to just my homily. Give me time, and I’ll work something out. In the meantime, here you go…
February 26, 2023 – First Sunday of Lent
I was finally back on a livestreamed Mass this weekend! Unfortunately, I think I gave a better version of this homily the night before, which wasn’t livestreamed. Not that either version was great.
Posting this from the office. Perhaps when I get home I’ll find a way to chop the video so it’s just the homily and not the entire Mass.
January 29, 2023: 4th Sunday of Ordinary Time
This was the official kickoff to Catholic Schools Week, so Mass was much more crowded than usual. (Suspiciously, the collection did not increase proportionately.) There were an awful lot of really little ones in church, and at times they were rather…vocal. I’m not sure how much of that gets picked up on the video. Also, I’m told the feed was a little choppy again. I don’t know why we keep having these problems. All that being said…enjoy.
