I received this nice note by e-mail from Fr. Gregory Lockwood (edited):
Greetings from the Archdiocese of Saint Louis; [THERE WERE PHOTOS… but embedded in the e-mail and too time consuming for me to edit and then upload to my own server]
Assumption is a ‘70’s church, so we had to make some accomodation to the architecture-not enough steps, so we used the first pew as the communion rail; my pastor got the altar moved back two feet in December
So we could get in front of it (note the beautiful new granite floor-it was ugly wine-colored carpet before). The attendance for this particular mass was on par with our other holy day novus ordo (English) masses-
We had close to three-hundred people in attendance. We begin weekly sung masses January 13th, on Sunday afternoon (so as not to interfere with the regular Sunday schedule), as well as holy days.
