I will definitely attend if it goes TLM - I'll go to Nye's too.

They should get Fr. Morrissey involved from St. Louis in St. Paul - he did a great job with all the renovation there. I think OL Lourdes was a Marist church at one time.

That is a beautiful church. And they have free heated parking!

And if I miss the 5:00 p.m. at Nativity in St Paul and need an evening Mass, their 7:00 p.m. just hits the spot.

I used to hang out a bit at Nye's when I worked downtown. Before the new crowd moved in. Al and I would chat occasionally. He wasn't Polish, his wife was.
