Attended the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The homily was inspirational, to the point. Yet, the rock style music was a destruction at best. This entertaining stuff needs to be excluded from the Mass.

The priest faces away from the congregation during much of the mass. There were 14 alter boys (all late teenagers). Communion rail, communion plates held under your chin, latin mass, etc. I much prefer our mass at home, but it's great to visit other areas...More
