A really bad idea: a “flash mob” during Ash Wednesday mass

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 03/10/11

Really.

It happened in South Dakota:

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent . It a time for penance, reflection, fasting and apparently, dance for one group of catholic students. We attend one Ash Wednesday Service that was interrupted by an unexpected, but emotional flash mob. Not long after receiving the ceremonial ashes and final blessing, a flash mob broke out during the Ash Wednesday Mass at St. Mary Catholic Church in Sioux Falls. The name of the song was “Where you go I’ll go” by Chris Tomlin. A timely tribute for the beginning of the Lenten season. “We had done it for our talent show and it had such a powerful message behind it/we had a lot of people asking could we transform it into church or mass,” St. Mary Teacher Julie Kolbeck said.
