At 12Noon Mass & 5PM Mass

10 Aug

The Purpose of The Double Appearance was to promote the August 23rd Jointly Sponsored Barbeque to raise funds for the Holy Child Jesus Food Pantry.

And something unusual occurred at Holy Child Jesus in Richmond Hill, Queens. A Young Lady, who I have heard chant in Latin, “Pie Jesus” at a Missa Requiem in the Parish, sang both the 12Noon Mass & 5PM Mass. It was a Welcome Change from the “Gagorian Chant” of the Youth Minister and his Gaggle of Adolescents, whose singing of chants could awaken all of those entombed below the High Altar in Saint Peter’s Basilica.

It was easy on my ears, even though it is the Silly Summer Season of Ordinary Time. And she does know, not only Gregorian Chant but is familiar with Byzantine Chant. She also teaches Singing in Private Lessons.

And Flyers were handed to Parishioners at the End of Mass, promoting the joint Morris Park Council Knights of Columbus 566-Ancient Order Of Hibernians Queens Division 14 Barbeque to benefit the HCJ Food Pantry.

It has been a Long Day & it is a Time for rest.

Deo Gratias!
