NPM (NaPalM)'s Strange Program--UPDATED!!

HT: Christus Vincit

I received from my pastor the registration book for the NPM convention scheduled for Indianapolis in July

(NPM is the National Pastoral Musicians' trade group. We've called it "NAPALM" since about the 1970's, for all the usual reasons.)

I noticed one particularly strange and abnormal thing, considering this is billed as a convention for Roman Catholic musicians. NOT ONCE AT ANY TIME DURING THE CONVENTION did I read that there would be HOLY MASS celebrated.

Flying the flag of NPM, clearly marked.

UPDATE: There actually IS one Mass. But you have to know what "community Eucharist" means in order to know that. See combox.

Gee, why don't you look at Wednesday, July 11 - 8:00 pm. Hmmm Convention Eucharist?

Somehow or other, Fr. McManus does not have me on the mailing list.

The quote is drawn from the linked blogspot.

But you know church musicians--blind.

Come on, now! There isn't any believing practicing Catholic over the age of, say, seven or eight, who doesn't know what Eucharist is. Let alone anyone so seriously into Catholic servanthood as to have any interest in the NPM Convention who doesn't know what Eucharist is. "Convention Eucharist" is as clear as day.
