St. Edward’s Roman Catholic new normal


We now attend mass via Youtube viewing of live Mass celebrated by our Pastor. Our Holy Week and Easter Sunday celebration was an empty church except for the priest, the cantor and a couple others to carry out the Mass. While listening to Easter music, eyes closed, it was if I was in church seeing our congregation like every other Easter I celebrated for the last 55 years. Open my eyes, I was in my pajamas in my family room looking at Mass on my iphone. Unimaginable! Somehow my spirit was connected to a higher being and felt grateful for my faith.
Our diocese is ringing bells at area churches giving thanks to the doctors and nurses and all frontline workers.
