I went to Mass at St. Peter’s yesterday, for the first time in my life. It’s a pretty nice church and they’ve got TONS of Masses. The tabernacle is behind the altar, with no hunting about. There are attractive stained glass windows with Catholic symbols on them, and the lighting doesn’t glare in your face. No crazy, no weirdness, nothing but going to Mass. Yay!

The only disadvantage is that it’s got a “quarter pie slice” shaped nave, and that the music was mostly GIA’s greatest corporate Catholic hits. But it’s amazing how much better those songs sound, when the rest of Mass is normal and is conducted like the parish believes Mass is holy. Also, the musician was pretty darned good. So yeah, even my objections are pretty positive.

For some reason they have four priests and eight deacons. I assume this means that they are covering a lot of territory, besides the aforementioned tons of Masses! (Huber Heights is a pretty big suburb, though.)
