Low Sunday

The Sunday following Easter is traditionally called "Low Sunday" (our Ordo Kalendar even noted it, parenthetically). I couldn't find an origin for the name, just a few suppositions that managed to avoid the one I've heard most: that the turnout for church services the First Sunday after Easter is significantly low.

That was not the case today, though I have seen it in the past. I was not only pleasantly surprised by the turnout, but saw that today on "low Sunday" we had more folks present than we would have had on a normal Sunday not so very long ago.

Of course, we'll have a lot more in just a couple of weeks when Bishop Provence comes to visit.

    "Low" Sunday? I guess this was one for the books. Our average attendance at Mass is now higher than peak attendance (but for Christmas and Easter) a couple of years ago. Is that not progress?
