Public Service Announcement
Megamarch, April 9th in downtown Dallas
This political march event is looking to be HUGE. If you can go to a Mass other than any at the Cathedral this day, it is highly advised. I've got an e-mail in to the contact on the web page and a post on the Yahoo boards trying to find out the route. As a downtown resident, this is not only going to mess with my being able to go to my usual Mass at the Cathedral, but it's also going to mess up any plans I have of getting out of downtown.
I wish this political movement could have waited two weeks, until Easter was over. I understand the reasonings behind the timing for the marches, but I'm still a touch irked. My Palm Sunday is going to be hosed. This is the last time that our RCIA class was going to get to meet in Mass, plus this is my first Palm Sunday as a Catholic. I'll probably end up going to the early morning Mass at St. Jude.
I e-mailed my RCIA teachers about this but have gotten no response so far. I'm sure we'll talk about it tonight. Maybe our class can go to Vigil Mass together or something. I'll keep the blog posted as I receive information.
UPDATE: I just e-mailed my City Councilperson, Angela Hunt, to see if she could find out the march route information. Ms. Hunt is an excellent councilperson and I'm so glad she got elected. I'm sure she'll respond as soon as she has time to get the information.
