Lent Begins on a High Note
Despite the frigid weather, Good Shepherd had a nice attendance at both the 8:00 AM and 7:00 PM Masses of Ash Wednesday and a full church for the Scripture service and distribution of ashes at noon. Despite the cold and overnight snow on Thursday, we did get at least twenty people for both Mass and Scripture study. This was excellent considering the weather conditions. I certainly don’t advocate the elderly attending daily Mass on frigid mornings or when ice and snow make travel and walking hazardous. The Sunday liturgies, on the other hand, were poorly attended despite conditions improving by the 10:00 AM Mass. If the weather improves, I would encourage those who planned to attend daily Mass, the Scripture sessions, the Stations of the Cross and The Light Is On For You not to be discouraged if you missed the first week due to weather.
