First Mass back at St. Mark Parish

The procession to the alter.

Our first mass at St. Mark Parish since March 8th.

Monsignor Brownsey held it in the parking lot and we participated from our cars. We walked up to the white tent in the background for communion. That was done several cars at a time as we observed the social distancing rules given before we started.

Of course I was disappointed we could not celebrate in our hundred year old church. I love the resonant sound of that big pipe organ, the small groups of musicians and the wonderful choir. I also miss visiting with my St. Mark’s family after mass. Even just sitting in the church, which is a shrine to Fra Angelico, Patron of the Arts, can be a moving experience for me.

But I am grateful I had the opportunity to receiving the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

That is what matters most on Sunday.
