Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Want Some Free Ice Cream?

July 20th, 2009, Promulgated by Gen


If you do, be sure to stop by St. Anne Church, Rochester, NY around 8:15 on July 25th. It has been a tradition at that parish that, on the last official day of the Novena to St. Anne, there is an ice cream social. The thing is that it is only for people who have been praying the novena to St. Anne.

Something tells me that we’ve all been doing this, if only in our hearts . . . In that case, I think we deserve a little ice cream.

(Disclaimer: I am NOT saying that you should all go down to St. Anne Church and indulge at the cost of Sr. Joan Sobala. I would never ever ever do that. However, what I would do is accept the hospitality of a kindly old soul who enjoys lay preaching and long walks on the beach.)

    Check out the following: http://web.archive.org/web/20070618081056/www.saintannechurch.org/novena.htm

    The Novena talks in 2007 were, it appears, all given by a priest, Fr. Michael J. Marigliano. As for the talks this year, only one will be given by a priest (Fr. Tyman). The rest of the talks will include: Sr. Jody Kearney, Sr. Barbara Moore, Dr. Joseph Kelly, Sr. Patricia Schoelles, and her holiness, Sr. Joan Sobala.

    What a difference a Pastoral Administrator makes.

    I'd rather not give her any encouragement. We wouldn't want her to stick around any longer than she has to.
