Church

Dorothy & Elspeth

We've begun going to church again.  Els and Dorothy join me each Sunday morning for mass at our local Catholic Church.  Unlike our time in Gainesville, there aren't many churches to choose from.  We're blessed that Hendersonville has a Catholic Church at all; two would be asking too much.  The church is associated with a Catholic K-8 school (that has aspirations of being a K-12 school).  The mass we attend includes a children's mass (where kids from Pre-K - 5th grade (or so it seems) leave at the beginning of mass and return in time for Communion).  I imagine this will be nice for Dorothy when she's old enough. For now she sits with us, mostly restless, sometimes quiet, sometimes participating, while mass goes on around her. Our first week there, she sang whenever anyone else sang.  As we left a woman in front of us, all silver radiance, said, "Don't ever make her stop singing" so at least one other person appreciated Dorothy's efforts at making a joyful noise unto the Lord.
