I just had to share a wonderfully different experience for us. We attended a Byzantine Rite Mass on the Feast of Saint George this past Monday. We met a lot of homeschoolers that I have been dying to meet for months (but circumstances had dictated otherwise since I found out about this great group). We experienced the Byzantine Rite Mass and then had a picnic at a local park. Fr. Paul gave a wonderful talk on St George and explained the major features of St George's icon. Then we spent a while letting the kids play. Some wanted to play baseball and others, like my boys, decided being Jedi Knights was the best way to expend their energy.
I really enjoyed our day and I look forward to the next scheduled BR Mass.
Carmela, it was FABULOUS to finally meet you in person! I can't wait to talk again!
