Without a home again.
We are AGAIN without a parish. I truly did not see this happening to us again. I choose to not go into all the details but it was not the fault of our priest, he was very supportive. I was in a foul mood most of the day yesterday and it has carried over another day. Father Fitzgerald, whom I greatly respect, told us over a year ago that our diocese could only support one Traditional Mass. That was not followed and now we are without a parish, again(the last EF Mass will be the Sunday before Thanksgiving). This has come as bad news for us as we were the only family who have our children in the school there. We have no idea what we will do, my kids are devastated. I wouldn't have brought any of this up but I do need prayers for our family as we do need a parish home quickly. My youngest has no where to make her first communion this year(and she knows it). It is also hard to find a school that will accept our boys with Asperger's. So please pray that we will find a parish, even if it is temporary. The ugly head of the legacy of Bishop Hughes has influenced my life once again. Maybe it will never go away and maybe we need to pray that we find a diocese/home that isn't so screwed up. I'm just tired from it all. So if you can, I know the election is tomorrow, but pray we find somewhere. Lord, help us in our time of need and be near us.
