I went to Mass at 6 p.m. on August 9, 2009.
I will have to say, I have never seen a Mass standing room only that wasn't a special Mass or Ash Wednesday, Easter or Christmas.
There was an electric guitar, an electic bass, drums and a piano along with 3 singers. The music was modern.
Gathering - I Could Sing of Your Love Forever
Presentation - You are Mine
Communion - We are One Body and We Fall Down
Close - Just Like You
All I can say is that if you are in your 50s, really reconsider if you should be headbanging. Then reconsider whether or not the song you are singing in Mass is really, really, really appropriate to headbang while playing. Twisted Sister, Motley Crue, Metallica are headbanging bands, We Are One Body, not so much.
It was all I could do, when the Director of Adult Faith Formation came to announce a Bible study, not to answer her question aloud in Church. She asked "Have you ever picked up the Bible and not known where to start?" Uhm Genesis perhaps?
One thing that bothered me was I couldn't figure out the theme for the stained glass windows and why there were deer or antelope tracks on them. Or footprints.
Some pics I took with my cell phone camera:
My Favorite Window...I love Rainbows
