Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 04/04/15

…is the rehearsal that goes into it.
Just got back from this year’s rehearsal with our DRE, Deacon Bill McNamara, and our pastor, Bishop Paul Sanchez. The church was being decorated. Cassocks were being mended. Catechumens were being pushed around. Robes were being measured.
Tonight, of course, it will all look effortless. (Unless the deacon screws up The Exsultet. But let’s not think about that…)
Some scenes from the preparations below.
