Baskerville, I am totally with you.  We go to Latin NO Sundays, but all the holy day masses are pure modernist crap.  Got my ashes from a laywoman instead of the priest.  Never mind the fat, yodeling guitar player wearing some kind of evangelical "Holy Spirit" blue t-shirt.  I just love attending Mass and leaving seething with disgust.

And on a related subject....our parish offered 3 "ash services" during the day?  What IS that?  If it's not a Mass, it can't fulfill the obligation?  Why bother....just for the ashes?  Anyone else have this going on?
I hear ya. And yes one of the Parishes in town has an Ash service conducted by a pantsuit Nun.

Did the Priest at least give out ashes? Where I went there were 3 stations set up to get ash and just as I was leaving they were starting to give out ash and I looked back and all three stations had lay women giving out the ash while the Priest sat in his big high chair.

Ash Wednesday isn't a Holy Day of Obligation.

Wife and I went to a Dominican Rite Missa Cantata. The choir/schola was magnificent!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It started, of course with the Blessing of the ashes and then distribution. Next Holy Mass in the Dominican Rite. It was well worth the hour and fifteen minute drive.

However, this weekend its "reality check", Nervous Oder time. But on the 28th its FSSP High Mass. March 7th it reality again and then back to FSSP for Laetare Sunday.
Its getting so I'll drive almost anywhere to avoid the NO.

I was able to serve for the blessing of the ashes and low Mass that followed.  I was also able to avail mysely of confession as well.  A beautiful start to Lent.  Now, to keep up the penance.
