What is Wrong With This Picture?
No Mass is offered in the chapel. And no Mass is offered on a Sunday. Has Mass ever been celebrated here?
There is not even a daily service.
Sunday is an "ecumenical" service (not sure what that means). Two days a week there is a "Catholic" Communion service.
This is a far cry from the good old days when the upstairs chapel of St. Joseph's Hospital was packed every day for prayer and penance, Baptisms and Masses. My grandma even said they wheeled her in from the maternity ward in the 1940s after she had her babies in the to pray with the nuns and others.
The CSJ nuns ran a tight ship, until they went bonkers. May the dead nuns who gave their lives to this institution over many decades pray it will make a return to its Catholic roots and heritage.
