In continuing my theme of St. Joseph, I headed to St. Joseph in Highland. Because the church is 1.5 hours away and Mass was 8 am. I had to get up at the crack of dark and leave. On the drive there was lots of nice fog. Too bad I waited until the last second to leave or I could take pictures of fog.
I get to the Church, which, surprise, surprise, is not where the coordinates indicate where it is. And there's a sign saying Mass starts at 8:30 am. Ok.
At 8:25 am, another person pulls into the parking lot. It turns out, that once a month, they don't have Sunday Mass. And that Sunday without Mass is today. I'm not sure why the parish doesn't do a Sunday Service in the Absence of a Priest instead of everyone fending for themselves. I'm not sure why there wasn't a sign on the door either. Alas. I guess I'll come back at the end for Mass. At least gas was 30 cents cheaper in Perry County.
Never fear, I have a GPS and a 3G iPad. I found another Mass nearby ;)
