I attended Mass at Our Lady of Sorrows today. I had heard that OLS had invited our old Holy Spirit Parish Choir to sing at their 9:30 Mass. Anyone who has ever heard our old Holy Spirit Parish Choir knows how enjoyable Mass can be with them adding their magic to the celebration.
1.) I understand that even before Mass got started, one of Our Lady of Sorrows' Eucharistic Ministers went up to the visiting Choir Director to tell him that he and his choir were not welcome at Our Lady of Sorrows. She said her feelings were backed by over 100 Our Lady of Sorrows' parishioners that were present at Mass.
Well, if that’s the case, why did you invite them there in the first place? This is a very talented group that has MUCH BETTER places to go than where they are not welcome! Mighty Christian of you folks over there at OLS!
2.) I also have no earthly idea who this Father Kelly is? Someone told me he was just a visitor at Our Lady of Sorrows. Based on his rambling 'lost my way' homely and his typical 'I am the priest' attitude, I think it is time Fr. Guss found someone else to help him with his Masses. This guy needs to be put out to pasture! Even if his guest choir was totally out of line, he could have at least had the decency of waiting to correct them until after Mass, instead of embarrassing them in front of everybody!
And we wonder why people are leaving the Catholic Church in droves… Dua!
