San Juan to Makati

Ateneo Christmas Masses

Posted in Catholic,communication,government,religion by yangiwei on December 23, 2010

If I could, I would attend the Simbanggabi Mass on December 24 at the Gesu, because of the choir Friends of Gesu, which we caught for the first time last Sunday at the Alumni Mass.  My friend observed that they sounded like they were a lot, but there were only two female voices.


Trying to duplicate my friend Niraj's shot.


Last Sunday at Ateneo, I asked my friend if she had seen my Nepalese friend’s Ateneo shots.



My friend says that the Mass we attended here was no better than the ones in Cardinal.



From the Blue Post:

‘Christmas Masses at the Chapel of St. Thomas More, Ateneo Professional Schools
Friday, December 24, 8:00pm – Midnight Mass: Solemnity of the Lord’s Birth
Sunday, December 26, 12:00nn – Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph
Friday, December 31, 8:00pm – Vigil Mass: Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, and Imposition of the Name of Jesus / New Year’s Eve Mass
Sunday, January 2, 2011, 12:00nn – Solemnity of the Epiphany of our Lord’


I really don't like the rush to ligpit the chairs after the Mass.


Incidentally, I was taking photos of trees and statues outside Gesu last Sunday when my friend pointed out to me that I should be taking photos of the helicopters (and planes?–I’m not sure)  flying over Ateneo.  My friend counted like ten helicopters, and I counted three more while at the 10:30 AM Mass.  It was only when I got home to watch DZMM when I learned that there was a rehearsal for the PAF anniversary.  Was that it?


I wish we had known of the rehearsal in advance, as we got worried when we saw these choppers.









Ateneo Rockwell Mass tomorrow

I only go to Ateneo Masses, and Rockwell has A/C.

I got a text from someone in charge of the Ateneo Rockwell Mass, confirming that there will be a Mass at 5:15 pm tomorrow, a Saturday.  I’ve been texting this person over the years, but I have no idea who he or she is.  I’ve asked the people handling the Mass for their cellphone numbers, and one lady told me to check the board.  That’s assuming that I go to Mass there regularly.

My friend's aunt told me about this.

I prefer the homilies and choirs at Ateneo Loyola, but I find it too hot.

I wish the Mass skeds were online.

I only go to Ateneo Masses because I feel that the Ateneo Jesuits put some heart into the Mass.  So does Fr. Johnny Go, but again, Mary the Queen has no A/C.

I forget the name of the chapel now.

I’m bringing a friend, N, to the Ateneo Rockwell Mass.  I don’t think that she has ever been there, even though she is an ADMU alumna.  She hasn’t been to Mass in a year, I think.

An elevator goes up to the chapel.

I had brought a client, LLA, to Ateneo Loyola for Mass. She thanked me, and got hooked.  She had stopped going to Mass because the Masses in Cavite where she lived, were in Pinoy.  She really appreciated the homilies at Ateneo Loyola.
