Church | Giftie Etcetera: Church

Sunday, June 1, 2008


we are going to try the Catholic Church next to our house. We like St. George, but we never make it there. There are two reasons. One is that it's too far away. It takes all of Sunday morning by the time we dress, drive, attend, and drive home. The other reason is because the cry room is sucky and inadequate. It is packed full of older kids who should not be in there, and they are loud and play, and there are no song books.

We'll see how this goes. I'm very picky about my Church, because my politics are different than most South Louisiana Catholics. And I'm picky because I don't always agree with the Catholic Church, but feel that I should go and worship and learn anyway...and that either I will continue to disagree but with full moral conviction behind my disagreements with Church teachings or will change my mind, if there is a moral reason to do so.

Our church is one block away. I LOVE that!! We go almost every Sunday. I also like that they have a nursery. I don't think Catholic churches have that.

We do have a nursery. It wasn't available until Ander was 1. But the Church encourages kids to attend, and bringing him to Mass is part of the point. :(

Mom said the cool young priest that is over at St. Joseph is moving to the church closest to y'all, so you should be OK.

I love Father Michael! I hope so.

Ahh, Tad's not ready to sit in church yet. A couple more years and then I'll bring him until the Children's sermon and then back to the nursery. I just don't get anything out of it with him there and neither does he. Good luck!!
