From time to time, we go camping on a long weekend (Memorial Day or Labor Day), arriving Friday and staying through until Monday.
This only happens every couple of years because usually on a normal camping weekend, we come home on Sunday in time for the evening Sunday liturgy.
So, when we are staying through until Monday, I ask our pastor to please grant us a dispensation since we are really out in the wilderness and far, far away from a Catholic Church. He has always been happy to do so, and appreciates the fact that we ask him. He says most people don’t and he wishes that they would.
BUT – and here’s the BUT – we take along our missals and have a prayer service first thing Sunday morning. We bring music (recorded or just our voices) and invite the children and teenagers to take parts as Lectors - the First Reading, the Psalm, the Second Reading, the Intentions, etc. (one of the dads read the Gospel). No homily or “talk” after the Gospel. Just a moment of personal silent reflection. Essentially, we include everything in the Liturgy of the Word for that particular Sunday, skip the Liturgy of the Eucharist (obviously), but include the Our Father and read the closing prayer, ask for God’s blessing on us then we listen to or sing another hymn. It usually only lasts about 15 minutes, but we invite everyone on the camp trip to join us. No one is pressured to join in, but most do once that they realize we’re not trying to do anything illicit or weird. No one tries to “pretend” that it’s Mass - simply a prayer service (No communion). And the setting and environment are breathtaking.
Again, once everyone sees that we’re not trying to impose anything on them that they’re not comfortable with, they join in.
(My kids sometimes wished that we’d skip it, because they were just being kids, but we didn’t let them off the hook.)
