this week

just to recap, the following are the churches that i went to during the holy week. pictures borrowed from various sources except for the resurrection and ascension church, rego park, new york.

for palm sunday, i went to resurrection and ascension church, rego park. its about 5 blocks away from my house. so, i can just basically walk to church 10 mins before mass begins. its like your neighbourhood church and always packed with people from the surrounding areas and some familiar faces that i have seen around where i live. oh, and i also went there for good friday.
whereby for holy thursday, i went to university parish of st. joseph church near new york university. it is located in west village and mostly caters students at nyu and the surrounding neighbourhood. its a small church but something about it that makes you feel comfortable sitting in through mass. the church has a good choir too and that is why i went there on holy thursday.
and for easter mass this evening, i went st. patrick's cathedral. its a huge and beautiful church but the thing i hate about going there is the presence of tourists and visitors to the church. so, you don't get that feeling of going to a mass and always feels like i am rushed through the mass. nonetheless, i decided to go there since i got up late this morning and decided to take it easy today and maybe do some work. but of course, i didn't get any work done. located on fifth avenue and it is also the largest gothic style in the country. the inside ornaments and design is simply outstanding.
