So yesterday I attended a 7:00 am service for Ash Wednesday. Our church also had a 7:00 pm mass, where we had a speaker come and talk during the homily who was said to start speaking at 7:00. I had wanted to attend this speaker, but didn’t realize she was speaking during the mass. Due to lack of parking, by the time I walked in, she had just started talking (I had thought by this time i had missed a good portion of her talk since it was aroumd 7:30)however I was at this point late for mass. I left at the end of the homily.
My question is, was it alright for me to show up late and leave early since I had already attended a mass in the morning. Thanks!
