This past Saturday, our family attended the diocesan Scout Mass for all scouts earning a faith award. R earned the Light of Christ and P earned Parvuli Dei. Bishop Saltarelli celebrated the Mass at Christ our King, a beautiful church in Wilmington. The boys enjoy visiting older parishes now to see the difference in architecture. I enjoy this as well, although some of the older parishes are in neighborhoods that have seen better days.
Since God “turned on the heat” outside that day (actually the whole weekend and into the first part of this week!), the decision was made to have the reception in the church’s basement hall. Far nicer and cooler than the outdoor courtyard. They had such a nice selection of mini-sandwiches, fruit, cheese and dessert that we didn’t even cook dinner that evening.
