The puppeteers of St. Agatha's parish in Milton, Massachusetts invite you to sample their artistry:
Puppet Ministry provides opportunities for young and old to share their faith and work together to create an effective method of outreach through the use of puppets.
Light entertainment for informal parish functions? Not exactly.
Right now we are only performing once a month for the 9:00 Family Mass. We feel it is the best place to begin.
Do those last two words make you shudder? It begins with the Family Mass. But it won't end there; the puppets are ambitious. They want more opportunities to perform, more openings for their unique ministry, more chances to drive every thinking, prayerful Catholic out of the pews.
[H/T: The American Papist]
(As a footnote, read the comments on the American Papist blog, and notice that the first parishioner to defend the puppet show uses the word "vibrancy" twice. That's a dead giveaway. When you hear that a parish is "vibrant," you know that you're hearing liberal propaganda.)
