A Trip to the EWTN Studios and the Chapel

04/05/2016

Wow… what a week.

Six intense days studying, learning, discussing, and then masterminding with new colleagues at the NAMS Workshop in Atlanta.

My head is exploding. My brain is so full, it’s oozing outta my ears.

And now, this.

 

Outside the glass doors, camera pressed to the glass, peering in at the altar at Our Lady of the Angels Chapel in Irondale, Alabama. Home of the EWTN televised Daily Mass.

Birmingham is so close to Atlanta. Taking this little detour adds less than 100 miles to the drive home. How could I pass up the opportunity to visit EWTN, the Chapel, the Shrine at Hanceville?

Rolled into town just after 7 PM. Got a room at the Hampton, sat down to relax for a while. Checked the map and discovered that EWTN and the Our Lady of the Angels Monastery was just a mile down the road!

Had I known, I would have stopped there first.

Should have known. Didn’t look closely enough at the map. And I was exhausted when I got to the Hampton Inn.

But…

Realizing the monastery was so close, I had to go.

So glad I did.

I parked and took my time strolling the grounds, just after dusk.

It’s serene.

It’s beautiful.

It’s peaceful.

 

 

 

 

And what would a blog post be without a video?

 

Or two?

 

Tomorrow morning, Fr. Mitch Pacwa celebrates the televised 7 AM Mass at the Chapel! I’m thrilled! Can’t wait.

Then off to the The Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Hanceville.

It’s going to be another incredible day.
