I ask b/c it was someones brain child to introduce a Sunday 7 pm Mass instead of having two in the mornings. So right now we have Sat @ 5:00pm, Sunday 10 am and 7pm. This won't start until September (phew, b/c they originally wanted to start it in Aug)
My problem is the Music Ministry. My 'partner' has already expressed his concerns making his choir, the Men's/Senior choir, do a 7 pm Mass. Really, he has no choice b/c I am not assigning choirs to certain times... it is a rotation... period. I don't want to do a 7 pm Mass either! My kids bed time is 8 pm and the way our priest babbles... (it is an on going joke between him and I *grin* I am not being disrespectful ;) ) We will not get out of there until 8:10 and unless I bring them to Mass in their PJ's.... This is also saying if my DH is not in town otherwise they would stay home with him.
So my question is, do you have a night Sunday Mass?? How busy is it and do you have the Music Ministry participate.
The argument is that those who are out of town on the weekends would be back in time for a 7 pm Mass. Sure that's great, but are they also the ones who will run all the ministries required?? I just Hate doing anything Sunday night b/c I was brought up that THAT was family time. It has been suggested that it turn in to a mostly Youth Mass in which a Youth choir will do the Music, but still, our musically talented Youth are very active with the High schools Music department and will have no time to do the Masses. Heck, we can hardly get them to come out and help us now!
I am seriously, not happy. This will be a Rant now. Please tell me of another Ministry, other than the Priest, where one person has to participate every weekend?? We only have 3 choirs, so we sing every weekend. We don't have a break. I don't bring my kids to Mass b/c I don't want them with me when I am singing and I am not that good of a Catholic who will go to more than one mass a weekend. ;) It is a lot of work to be in the Music Ministry. Not to mention the other leader in my choir doesn't seem to have any problem with taking off when ever he feels like it! Hello?? Do you not think I would like to take off too some days? So far I have done all the work.
Sorry, I am just frustrated.
