Finding a beautiful Catholic parish for Easter
Those of you who have followed my blog know that I have been a wandering Catholic for years now in search of a home parish. As my own home parish had become unbearable (see here).
I have driven around Connecticut to different parishes within about 45 minutes of my home. I have gone to Mass at them and Confession. Some have great priests for Confession, but Mass like a mega church televangelist.
There is one parish I keep going back to.
For a few months now I have been attending a beautiful baroque parish - the only baroque parish in the state of Connecticut actually- and I am really liking it.
It's a Novus Ordo Mass, but its done well. The priest is very reverent. I've noticed a few women (including myself) wear veils and the people are for the most part, very quiet before and during Mass- that in its self is a world of difference from where I came from!
There are NO bongo drums or piano's (thank you Jesus!), nor folk music. An organ, an actual beautiful organ! And not a felt banner in sight! 🙏
And did I mention its beautiful?
Here are some photos I took on my cell phone before and after Mass today.
There is one thing that bugs me though...they have a gorgeous altar rail that is completely unused! Such a shame!
This is Saint Sebastian Church in Middletown, CT.
I think I might have found my home. 😇
Happy and blessed Easter everyone!!
