I Will Not Go to Midnight Mass

I was interested in going to Midnight Mass. But I will not be going.  
I have called six Catholic churches. I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere. There is only one Catholic church in my county. But I called six churches within an hour's drive. At four of them, no one was in the office to ask if I could bring my service dog. At two of them, the person in the office didn't know if I could bring him or not and the person that might know was not available to speak to. I am not willing to drive more than an hour to go to mass and I am not willing to drive 45 minutes to an hour without knowing whether or not I'll be turned away when I get there. And with the person answering the phone at two churches not know if I could be allowed in or not, I don't feel confident that I would. It's quite possible I would, but I don't feel confident about it.
I guess I should have planned ahead more. If I would have called last week to ask, I could have probably gotten an answer. And I bet at least one of the six churches would have been happy to have me. But I don't feel like guessing which one or ones that would be.


  1. I am amazed you would voluntarily set foot in a catholic church aka home of the pedophile priests! Thank Goddess I will never have to set foot in one again!

    1. I thought it would be interesting to see Midnight Mass. I don't intend to support the Catholic church financially or become Catholic or anything like that. And I am not going to debate religion here.
