Middle Masses at St. Gregory's

I don't know how many of my fellow parishioners at St. Gregory's Catholic Church read my blog. Regardless, a pet peeve of mine came into play this morning, so I'm going to post on it.

At the 9 A.M. and 11 A.M. Sunday Masses, any parish regular knows the church fills. No seats left; standees in the rear at 11 A.M. I was at 11 A.M. Mass this morning, and we had large families coming forward expecting to find seats in the front 10:57 A.M. - 11:05 A.M. Memo to clueless: if you're bringing a large family to St. Gregory's for 9 or 11, be sure to be there at least 10 minutes early. Coming forward at the last minute you look arrogant and/or stupid.

Or, you know, you look like a large family, which means more people to have last-minute hold-ups that delay getting out the door.

I have my own pet peeve about the St. Gregory's website. The mass bulletins haven't been updated since mid-August. I would do it for them if I knew how. Surely someone else knows how to do it.
