Historic church in Bend

After showing you what the new church of St Francis in Bend looks like, I share with you just two photos of the historic church, built in 1920, dressed up for Christmas. The red poinsettias dominate the reredos behind the main altar, while the nativity is placed in front of the altar, shadowed with white poinsettias. 
 We celebrate an afternoon Mass here every Sunday, which is always very crowded, while we celebrate weekday Masses here at 7 AM and 12:15 PM. Moreover the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is held here Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM till 6 PM, with Benediction given at 12 noon. Soon I will show you the new Monstrance which we just bought, through the generosity of the parishioners. We will start using it sometime in early January.
