  • The church is beautiful. We attended the Latin rite Mass, and although the sitting/standing sussesion was a little weird (in relation to the Latin rite) the ceremony was beautiful. Spanish/Latin and English/Latin Mass booklets were available but not the readings. I forgot my handbag there and came back half an hour later, when another service had already started, but they had moved it to the bishop hall, and people were very friendly to help me recovering it. There is some parking around if you get there early enough.
  • Beautiful church! The Latino priest preached way too long! He could've started his homily about half way in and it would have been interesting. The music was okay...the timing was a bit off. Mass was too long...and I'm a traditional priest saying that! It just dragged on. Father should not have sung the words of institution. It didn't accomplish the goal of heightening the moment, but rather caused distraction. And, for the love of all things holy, please stop having visitors stand at the end of mass and clap for them. That is no welcoming...it drives young people away. This isn't a performance. It's worship...and not of us!
