Ok, first in person Mass is in the books. I was expecting a lot more people than what we had but it was good to be back in the church. I think we had around 25 plus the celebrants, so it’s a start. The new traffic patterns inside will take some getting used to for the older folks I think but it will get better.
Did the congregation sing? I'm hearing some churches are not having singing and responses from the congregation.
 
My dad is 99 yrs old and has been a faithful Catholic all his life and until the Corna virus hit the big time he visited our mom everyday at the nursing home. It wwas very hard for him to adjust to not being able to visit mom and to not attend church services. During this lock down he has had to miss being with mom on her birthday and also on thier 75th wedding anniversary. He was really getting down. Yesterday I took him to church and afterwards his disposition was greatly improved. Maybe some of us "younguns" don't realize it but religion is a very important part of peoples lives and they need the church services.

Ours is opening next Sunday. It will be outdoors. You can either stay in your car or bring chairs to sit in the parking lot. They will broadcast the service over the car's radio.

I hope he will be able to visit your mom very soon

I have a feeling that Church's are going to have a problem getting people to come back.

As for visiting at te hospital , not allowing people to visit is BS.
Certainly every Tom Dick, and Harry doesn't need to be allowed in but Siblings and Husband's or Wives should be allowed to visit.
It's bad enough being sick without feeling abandoned.

May God bless all three of you.
