We visited Branson for MLK weekend, mostly for relaxation and to see the new WOW / Wonders of Wildlife at Bass Pro in Springfield, MO.

It snowed overnight Sunday, so we woke to a blanket of white that grew deeper as we drove to Mass.

We have celebrated Mass here before, and it was a blessing that Sunday and this Sunday, too.

This Sunday’s gospel was when Jesus was selecting His first apostles, and when he named Simon “Peter,” meaning “rock.” Just before that, Jesus told James and John “Come, and you will see.”

In his homily, the Deacon shared how “come, see” applies to snow, and rainbows.
AND to sharing with others... to evangelize.

Let’s invite others to Mass with us, wherever we may be!

We’ll see you next visit, Our Lady of the Lake!

Gospel
JN 1:35-42
John was standing with two of his disciples,
and as he watched Jesus walk by, he said,
"Behold, the Lamb of God."
The two disciples heard what he said and followed Jesus.
Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them,
"What are you looking for?"
They said to him, "Rabbi" — which translated means Teacher —,
"where are you staying?"
He said to them, "Come, and you will see."
So they went and saw where Jesus was staying,
and they stayed with him that day.
It was about four in the afternoon.
Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter,
was one of the two who heard John and followed Jesus.
He first found his own brother Simon and told him,
"We have found the Messiah" — which is translated Christ —.
Then he brought him to Jesus.
Jesus looked at him and said,
"You are Simon the son of John;
you will be called Cephas" — which is translated Peter.

Nice welcoming parish for visitors to Branson. Pastor was very nice and welcomed all the travelers to his parish. Lots of parking and easy to get to. If I am ever back in Branson I will attend mass here again.

We attended mass there on Sunday and it was really beautiful with lots of tourists like us. We even stayed for the delicious Skillet breakfast of homemade biscuits, potatoes and eggs! When I am visiting a place, I always look for fundraisers and charitable ways to spend my money. This was hosted by the Knights of Columbus and it was a perfect way to start our day!

Hard to "review" a church since it's about worship and not tourism, but it was nice to find a place to attend Mass while on vacation in Branson.

The church is quite large, and has a lot going on. For regular parishioners, there is a long list of activities. For visitors, there's a great chance to contribute to the costs of operating such a new, heavily-mortgaged church.

Though the structure is new, the Mass is traditional. At the Mass I attended, the Deacon gave an excellent homily. I wish all homilies were as good.

Really a lovely place to worship.
