HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I attended Mass at my local parish on Jan. 1st. The celebrant wore gold vestments and used Canon I. The music was quite good, with a trumpeter making the Christmas hymns more glorious. The Church was nicely decorated with trees, wreaths, and pointsettias, making me more excited about the upcoming renovations.
As of tommorrow, I have exactly 5 months to go until my wedding day. The plans are going well, although we still have to solidify the music selections. Within the next few weeks we will meet with the priest celebrant.
Thanks to Dappled Things, I found this fun romp of a blog: Fireside Chat with the Rector.
