|It's Not Mass - and It is "Seeker-Friendly"|

Apparently Xavier University is offering a class on evangelization and they are experimenting with a "seeker-friendly" service that is clearly not Mass (then why not drop the term "service" as it will just confuse people?) and is called "Road Trip".
"Road Trip will feature contemporary Catholic music by several local artists and the Rev. Eric Knapp, a Jesuit priest in his 30s. It's aimed not only at the college campus but young adults throughout Greater Cincinnati."
It sounds a bit like Catholic Underground sponsored by the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal which combines high level contemporary music and art with prayer and is spreading around New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
So much depends upon how this is done. It requires top flight music and serious prayer - but I wish them well. Catholic Underground seems to be packing em in.
May Christ be revealed and glorified in all things.
PS. The Storm Theatre in New York is sponsoring THE KAROL WOJTYLA
THEATRE FESTIVAL starting May 16th. They will be performing three of the plays of Pope John Paul II.
