St. Lawrence celebrates Epiphany

The parish met to-day, over one hundred strong. The parish showed it is still alive. It was the second Mass they have had at "the NASH", the nearby Slovenian Home, since the Mass of Eviction. Bishop Pevec said Mass. There was not the stated intention to challenge, but even without a statement, their presence constituted a parish in activity, Eucharistic activity.

It is not too much different than what St. Peter's does, they meet every week in new space. St. Emeric has two masses a month at St. Colman's. These displaced parishioners have not access to their property (patrimony). They were ordered to disperse. They are still free to meet, when the spirit is willing. Jesus will be there with them wherever they meet.
Those whom the LORD has ransomed will return and enter Zion singing, crowned with everlasting joy; They will meet with joy and gladness, sorrow and mourning will flee.—Isaiah li. 11. NAB
