Am thinking...

...of heading up to the Carey shrine for the Feast of the Assumption.

All roads must lead there since there will be ten Masses offered between the hours of 7am and 12pm on a day in which there is no obligation to attend Mass.

You goin' Elena? Perhaps not too far out of your neck of the woods.

Hadn't planned on it. Actually I am going YOUR way tomorrow for our annual portfolio evaluation. I would LOVE to go to little Italy in Cleveland, but if I can't we'll just do something here at home.

I've never even heard of little Italy in Cleveland. Have to research that as I've been thinking of heading up to the land of Cleve the last week of August in order to check out the art museum...

I haven't been to the Shrine in Carey in years. Had to visit it, you know, when I saw a sign for the National Shrine *and* Shrine Cafeteria...still have a little bottle of holy water from one of the taps along the side...so, that's an old memory...

I wish I'd seen this earlier. Perhaps we could have scheduled a meet/greet/worship combination.

TS said...

Roz, I got to get to your wonderful church someday. Ann Arbor area, right?

TS said...

Thomas: didn't visit the Shrine Cafeteria and missed the holy water but did hit the bookstore and shrine!

Were you there for the vigil Mass and candlelight procession? Definitely something to experience.

Many old photos of the shrine here:

Never been to the vigil Mass...this year would've worked out perfectly too since it was on a Friday...
