This morning at 6:30 we celebrated Lauds from the Office for the Dead and included Holy Communion for first Friday. Afterwards we adjourned to the parish hall for a delicious breakfast of bacon, grits, biscuits and gravy, fresh fruit, coffee and oj prepared by a couple of the men of the parish. I'm very glad to see that more men are attending now that we've moved the time to 6:30, instead of 7. Perhaps we'll have to start something for the women of the parish as well. I'll suggest it and leave it up to them to decide. The great thing is to get people to the church for something other than the Mass. Hard to do these days.
