I totally agree that it is a great mass but also a drive thru mass. I guess spending 1 hour a wk is just too much for some people.He is a good man though, don't knock him.

Good man my father went to that church for over 20 years prior to his arrival. When my grandfather was dying he blew off my family. He has done this to serval other people I know. He did this until a family with money lost a loved one and he was right their. I am sorry but I just do not see where people think he is a good man just wait till you need him he wont be their trust me just ask one of his ushers

Father Felix is most loving wonderful Priest we ever meet! Our family does NOT have money, when my Father was sick in the Hospital,(he was NOT our Priest at the time Father Abe from St Paul's was HE lied and said he was out of town, when in fact he gave me Communion , so we left that Church) he didn't come to see my father, but when asked Father Felix DID and we didn't even belong to his Church, it was because of the LOVE and Compassion he showed my family that led us to Our lady of the Rosary, He does not have Drive thru Mass's he just is not a long winded pulpit screamer like MOST of the Catholic Priests yelling for you to give more money, Father Felix gets his point across without any of that intimidation, He is a wonder Person and even better Priest, and all you haters are just that , why are YOU judging Father Felix yet "claim" to be Catholic, who is judging you, I'm pretty sure NO ONE is perfect, Including Me! You say you wouldn't want to be him on judgment day,,,,,ask yourself what YOU are doing to him, you all are only speculating what is going on , "let he without sin cast the first stone"!!! and for those who know me know this story because I tell it like it is!!!!!! Hurtful or not the TRUTH is the TRUTH

A friend of mine saw Father Felix in Walmart last week, why isn't he saying mass? It seems if he has time to shop, he has time to say mass.

Usually standing room only at this church for his masses. The reason? A 25 minute mass. Yes parts are cut out and he rushes through. So all those who love to say they attend mass every Sunday there, and want people to think what great Christians they are, are going there for a quick, get me out of church mass. Most aren't even members of that church.
Communion is like a cattle stampede. Mass on Saturday is a disaster waiting to happen.

Best church around! They welcome all!
Sure! they want whats in your bank! Ask your self-what they teach you about the truth?
How much do you gain from a visit? Other than some "Dommy-Dommy- what are you learning?
How much about the bible are they telling you? Once a week-one-1 scripture, Have you ever asked why, all the Latin? Why, isn't it in English?
faith, is not emotion.If you meet someone you like you get to know them. We learn about them, and like what we learn. same with this, how can you get to know someone just because another tells you about them? You cannot have a good relationship that way.

You are so right. Try going to any of these welcoming churches around here. People smile, shake your hand but once mass has ended look out. The same ones will flip you off driving out of the parking lot in a big hurry to go to breakfast.

Wow. Sorry so many of you are so threatened by us Christians! I am a Catholic and I am a huge fan of Jesus Christ. No Mary worship here. Father Felix is a great priest and deserves more respect than he's ever going to get here. His sunday mass is short so the kids can get across the street to religion classes. Plus he doesn't see the need to drag out and sing every word of the Mass. There's no need for that pomp and circumstance anymore. You either pray to our Lord Jesus or you don't. Make up your mind and quit sniping at Father Felix. Are you with Christ or not?!?!?

I'll never forget his Christmas Eve 2012 sermon when he proceeded to tell the story of how he joked with his staff about wanting new underwear and instead received a wooden toilet seat the year before. He then when on to tell how much the seat really hurt. I almost fell over in the pew. Did not expect to hear a priest engage in gutter humor. Although funny, I went to church looking for relief from this sort of thing and found myself in those 30 minutes participating in an episode of Comedy Central. No doubt laughter is the best medicine but this was over the top especially on the eve of Christ our Lord and Savior's birthday.

No one is 'threatened" you, are free to believe in what you choose. The point is simple: ask your self what you know about the Bible. What if anything has the church taught you about this book? I already know-nothing! I'm not disrespecting any religious organization, I just wish to have people be aware of what the real truth is about the Catholics. Deny idol worship, yet statues abound in the place-plaster at that, and is venerated?
The truth is, you do not need any help in approaching our creator, he is there for us if we so choose to learn what it takes to be close to him.
That only comes from KNOWLEDGE of who he is, and how do you get that knowledge?
Not from an entity that gives one scripture a week!
Dancing around the 'stage" and telling stories about personal things are not a way to learn about the truth. Why is the mass in Latin? Whats the big secret? Why, aren't they telling you about the intent of our maker? Or the fact he says" Oh, if they would only listen"
Yes he feels sorrow because many will not listen to the things he wants you to know.
Anyone, who takes the time to investigate the church will draw the same conclusions, just take the time to see for your own well being.

Altar Rosary group says that the weekly offering is down by 1/2. People are leaving in droves. Some went to Lourdes, others to Polish National. Someone saw Fr Felix about town with his 'special someone'.
