There's only one way we wanted to end a day like that, attending a mass at an older church. Maybe it’s not as old as the churches in Scotland, but the pews feel like it, none the less. We attended the 5pm mass at San Andreas Catholic Church ∙ 315 E 100 N ∙ Payson, UT 84651 ∙ Phone: (801) 465-4782 ∙ Website: http://www.parishesonline.com/scripts/hostedsites/Org.asp?ID=2090. I wanted to visit the church before Father Joseph S. Rooney, S.J., retires. Utah's Intermountain Catholic website has a wonderful article about Fr. Rooney: http://www.icatholic.org/article/red-rock-country-keeps-priest-in-his-golden-years-7711135
San Andreas Catholic Church is only 30 minutes away from my home. I've been to the social hall once, but never into the church. You will find ample parking in the back. From the parking lot there is easy (Please click the "Read More" to continue. Thank you.)
Although I was not able to speak to Father Rooney, I do wish him rest, relaxation and God's blessings for the next chapter of his life. Thank you Lord for helping me reach today's goal. As unworthy as I am, experiencing them was a blessing for my mind, heart and soul.
