I definitely KNOW that improved music, readers and fellowship would help Mass attendance.
That too is axiomatic. It’s also false to imply that it must come at the expense of better music/better readers/fellowship. It cannot be used as an excuse not to do anything else.
Not me. I think that suggestions like this greatly inhibit many parishes from improving. Without constructive feedback, without a corrective action loop, mistakes and problems continue and that’s not good.
It makes no difference what I like. This is not about preferences. This is about doing things objectively better in the drive to improve Sunday Mass attendance.
The ultimate excuse! Yes, I am at Calvary. I want more souls to be there with me! I don’t want to use this very fact as an impediment not to bring more people to His CHurch.
