Campus Ministry in DOR exists "to help meet the needs of Catholics in their twenties and thirties ... on college campuses throughout the diocese." As such, it is one of the beneficiaries of the funds raised during DOR's annual Catholic Ministries Appeal.
The Corning Curmudgeon, aka CPT Tom, has a son who is a student at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Anthony recently attended Mass at the the on-campus Neumann Center, a part of DOR's Campus Ministry.
The Mickey Mouse, Super Soaker, Tie-dyed Vestments, Mardi Gras Mass
Anthony reports that the priest processed into mass behind the cross wearing the Mickey Mouse hat and a gold masquerade mask. Once the singing stopped, the first thing he did was blow a kazoo and say, "Happy Mardi Gras." He then proceeded to sprinkle the congregation with Holy Water, using a Super Soaker to get the job done.
Anthony also took some pictures:
This is Holy Mass, as interpreted by DOR's Campus Ministry Program.
