Visit to St. Barnabas

This past Tuesday, I visited one of our new churches in the diocese for the first time, Saint Barnabas in Keller/North Fort Worth. I was a visiting celebrant and preacher for two Sundays a few years ago when they were still meeting at the local elementary school. Their current location opened about a year ago, and their founding pastor is Father Louis Tobola.

The large parish hall doubles as a worship space until they build a new church in the next phase of their construction. It is a nice set-up, as you can see below.

The shrine of Our Lady and the Stations of the Cross are very nice.

I was attending a meeting of the Catholic Clerical Union. Father Stephen Jones (above) from Holy Comforter in Cleburne gave a great talk on the life and work of Pope Paul VI.

Lovely setup indeed, but how does the priest celebrate with that arrangement of flowers on front of the altar?

Don't get me started.
