Weekend Attendance a Concern

Starting with the Memorial Day weekend, our attendance has plummeted. The Memorial Day weekend is traditionally a low-attendance one although the Memorial Day Mass on Monday does draw very well. Especially noticeable is the small number of students present since Faith Formation concluded. I would hope that people will make the effort to attend Masses of Obligation and make sure that children attend as well. I also encourage people to remain for the conclusion of the Mass. An hour a week is certainly not too much to give to God. We need to improve in these two areas.
