I am not making this up… really… a reader alerted me to this. I see also that the young Papist found it too.
St. Agatha Puppet Ministry
Fr. Charlie and his friends from Puppetville have returned from
their summer vacation! They are preparing for a Puppet Parable
which will be on Sunday, September 20th at the 9:00am Family Mass.
Join us for a special message as we begin our 6th season together!

I don’t have a problem with the use of puppets for the instruction of children. But not during Holy Mass.
Yes, during Mass.
From the website…
At what Mass do you perform?
Right now we are only performing once a month for the 9:00 Family Mass. We feel it is the best place to begin. Larger productions for the parish are a goal for the future and, possibly, as an outreach program for the community….but we are going to take “one step at a time”, pray, and let God lead us to where He wants us to go.
Do you have puppets during Masses at your parish?
I grant you that this puppet troupe doesn’t seem to be weird, as we see here. I can see a useful application, I suppose. They seem to be pretty nice puppets, actually.
But… during Mass?
Before… or after… in the church hall…
Am I wrong about this?
