I felt the need to share with you my impressions of the 25th Anniversary Mass at the horse park yesterday.
I spoke to a Horse Park employee named Mitchell on my way out. He was directing traffic in front of the arena. He said it was one of the smoothest-run events he had ever been part of since he came to work at the park! BIG kudos to all, (horse park personnel and local police worked seamlessly and side-by-side with all the diocesan volunteers)… was basking in the afterglow last evening.
All the ‘little’ details made the experience SO much better. For example, we sat in the 3rd row from the front. The very first row had been roped off, and we wondered why. Our curiosity was rewarded when it was time to receive Jesus’ Precious Body. The flow of a sea of humanity was wonderful!! I’d never have thought to do that… sheer genius, I tell ya!!
It was amazing—and I am grateful beyond words!!
'Thanks' is SUCH an inadequate word... monumental efforts on everyone's part made this one for the memory books for sure. We did good, Diocese of Lexington... on to 50 now... I hope I am alive to witness it!
God’s richest blessings to all of you…… D.B. Lexington, KY
