Mass at St. Ritas

2011, was a wretched year and 2012, isn't looking too much better but there's one thing that always raises my spirits; Thursday night Mass at St. Rita's in the Tridentine form. Fr. Eagle has so much energy and enthusiasm and both he and Fr. Bear are serious about offering confession for as long as it takes for every soul to be taken care of. We have the most adorable little altar boys and an interesting mix of people. Most of the people in the pews are young. At 44, I'm one of the oldest ladies present.

Next week is Candlemass and Fr. Eagle is excited about it. He's planning a solemn high Mass and  there will be a schola. If you are in Alexandria on February 2nd, this will be a beautiful balm for your soul.
