St. Stephen - Ulisse Sartini
Archdiocesan Offices are closed too.
Now some parishes will probably have Mass on the Second Day of Christmas - but some will not. Some may have the church or chapel open, although some are all locked up. Sort of seems like taking the Mass out of Christ
What? I'm not complaining - it just strikes me as ironic. I'm not saying priests shouldn't have a day off, or go on holiday. I also realize there are fewer priests these days. I know many priests live off 'campus' and no longer live in rectories, and some have more than one parish as well. I live in the city, if I had to, I could drive to another church.
It just seems contradictory however. Catholics complain that Christmas is anticipated, decorated, celebrated far too early - during Advent, oh my gosh! no! - and yet in Christmas season - the Second Day of Christmas in fact, the parish church gets locked up. The same thing will happen over New Year's weekend.
Christmas too secular? Too commercial?
Really? I think it's funny when religious people say that.
