WOW, SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 3 CONSISTED IN A KALEIDOSCOPE OF CLASHING LITURGIES, COLORS AND TECHNOLOGIES--IT WAS RICH!

But if that wasn't enough we also had our annual kick off Super Bowl Sunday, Bishop's Annual Appeal, which always falls the first Sunday of February.

I also spoke before and after the video at all the Masses, including the Extraordinary Form Mass--I wonder how many times videos have been shown at an EF High Mass? Am I a pioneer in that too!? Oh, the Glory!
