Post Halloween Mass.
Last evening Father invited all the little kids to wear their Halloween costumes to Mass because there would be a pizza party afterwards, and because he wanted to celebrate the Christian side of Halloween as well. (I don't know - that's what he said.) Last Saturday was Halloween of course, and I expect the little nippers would have been much too distracted and way too busy trick-or-treating to come dressed up or stay for a party.
It was very cute really. All the little animals, super-heroes, princesses and witches processed in with Father and Deacon. Then at collection time they all ran up front to put their money in the kid's collection box - OH! And then! And then - after Mass - but before the final blessing, they all assembled on the altar steps to a round of applause and photo op.
I know! I didn't get it either.
