Our new Mass schedule will begin the weekend of September 6th & 7th, 2014
Saturday – 5:00pm
Sunday – 8:30am and 10:30 am
The Worship Commission has decided on the new Sunday Mass schedule that will begin in September. The Commission decided to go with the results of the Parish Vote (8:00 & 10:00 = 446 votes/43% and 8:30 & 10:30 = 599 votes/57%) and our new Sunday schedule will be 8:30 and 10:30.
The commission heard concerns about the process, including the rush to schedule times, the voting taking place in three weeks of the summer when many are away on vacation and at cabins, not indicating which Mass would be the Family Mass and the impact the new times may have on Nursery, Children’s Liturgy of the Word, Adult Faith Second Sundays and Donut Sundays. We did listen to these concerns and we have recommended a reevaluation of the new schedule throughout the fall and in January revisit the schedule to see how it is working for the parish. The Worship Commission will bring the identified concerns to the Common Leadership meetings starting in August for discussion. Thank you for your feedback and your patience in this difficult process.
