I am back home in Maryland and I have decided that this summer is not going to be the easiest. I'm already deeply saddened by the graduation of the class of 06. But to make leaving my lovely Catholic bubble for the summer even worse, I am now faced with the problem of getting to Mass - Sunday Mass, let alone daily Mass - because I have to work Sundays 8:00 - 5:00. That makes reaching even a Vigil Mass difficult since the vast majority are at 5:00.
In my quest to find potential Mass locations I decided to check out some other local "Catholic" (cough cough) colleges. Here's a look at what I found:
We gather each Sunday as a community of the baptized to listen to the Word of God and celebrate the sign of God's love through the sharing of the one bread and one cup. We respond to the call of our baptism by going forth in service to proclaim by word and action the Good News of the Kingdom.
Celebration of the Eucharist:
11 a.m., 6 p.m., 9 p.m., 10:30 p.m.
Interdenominational Protestant Worship:
Monday-Friday: 12:10 p.m.
Monday-Thursday 10:30 p.m.
every other Thursday: 5 p.m.
Sacrament of Reconciliation:
Communal Celebrations during Advent and Lent, or by appointment. Call x.2838.
Thursdays: 5 p.m.
Wait wait....did I say "Catholic?" oh dear. I'm so sorry. I meant Jesuit. My apologies.
But seriously people, "celebrate the sign of God's love through the sharing of the one bread and one cup." Do they not believe in the Real Presence?.
And Communal Celebrations" of Reconciliation?? Oh and only during Advent and Lent because sin doesn't need to be recognized at any other time.
...then there's "EvenSong." One can only wonder. And keep wondering you will because I'm not about ready to go over there and find out.
Can I pleeeaase go back to school now?
