** When in Church**

Some of us need to be reminded at times how blessed we are to have a place as beautiful as ours in which to worship God. When we come to Church we are on “Holy Ground” in a “consecrated place.” That calls all of us to a spirit of reverence and respect, the same reverence and respect shown by arriving on time for Mass and not leaving early before the liturgy has ended. It means NO loud talking so others may pray, NO CELL PHONES heard ringing or being used. 

What we “wear” to Church also says a lot to those about how important the Eucharist is to us. We can do all these things simply by appreciating “where” we are and still make our Church a place & time of welcome, warmth & friendship for all who come to worship.
