If you don’t want to miss out on Holy Week services at St. Patrick Catholic Church, you don’t have to.
A series of Mass videos, freshly filmed by Royce Rolstad, are available at Forgotten Coast TV (FCTV) Mediacom channel, as well as FCTV’s YouTube Channel.
Rolstad said the first one was done on the Fifth Sunday of Lent, and they have continued since then.
“We will now have one out on Friday for Good Friday, and again on Sunday for Easter,” he said.
Rolstad said the videos have led to more than $3,000 in donations mailed to the church.
“Father Roger still wanted to reach people so he asked me about doing the videos,” he said. “The videos are just like being at Mass, minus communion and taking up a collection.”
On a personal note, Rolstad, the church organist and a lover of contemporary music, has been performing popular tunes on the piano from inside his home, and sharing them on Facebook, including the Times’ Facebook page.
To find the Mass videos, you can go to stpatricksmass.com, or search YouTube for St. Patrick Catholic Church Masses.
