Video Return Spot

Watch this video clip on our return to church this weekend. Jim, you can note the anitphonal seating.

Rather inconveniently, both basement sump pumps aren’t working fully just now. So there’s no running water for our lower lounge and classroom level this weekend. Unless we want to flood the storage room.

Also rather inconveniently, Iowa State’s huge VEISHEA festival starts tomorrow. Our parking structure is blocked off so that parishioners can park there for Mass later in the afternoon. Unfortunately, we could only move some stuff back into the upstairs church. Other items are still in storage downstairs, awaiting people and more time to sort through and assign a more permanent place.

Somewhere in storage, our piano lost the board that fronts the keys and its humidity control mechanism. Still playable. And freshly tuned. Just not all there.

I haven’t tested the electronic organ or the sound system yet. Crossing my fingers on those two.

Oh, and did I mention we have First Communion at the 10:30 morning Mass on Sunday? Fifteen children and their families.

This is shaping up to be a very exciting weekend.

    Thanks for this upload. Todd. I love the simplicity of the space and the way it focuses one’s attention to the altar, that gorgeous stark cross and the brick walls.

    It reminds me a lot of the changes made to New Mellary Abbey in Peosta, IA, many years back: http://www.flickr.com/photos/40509839@N04/4923028325/
