Sunday morning: Visit to a neighboring parish

OLGC is a tiny parish near the San Leandro Marina. Tucked away behind the condo complexes and close to the industrial part of SL, it is a very modern rectangle of a church, almost Protestant in its sparseness. Inside there are low ceilings and cushioned metal chairs but also a screen for the PowerPoints of hymn lyrics and long prayers. A predominantly Filipino congregation sings beautifully.

I continue to get better acquainted with my fellow East Bay Catholics. it’s not that I want to change parish affiliation but lately I have been sleeping in so I have been enjoying Mass in several different churches.
