|A cat-angel joined the choir at Myeong-Dong Cathedrals 2010 Christmas Mass.|
The group looked particularly beautiful in their white altar clothes, and their red reindeer antlers showed off their Christmas spirit. Everyone in the church was genuinely excited, and many people brought out their cameras to take live video and pictures of the group. One of my students is the main altar girl for the mass, and I couldn't help but snap a few photos of her with those cute antlers on her head!
|The altar girls were having a hard time not laughing!|
We thought the fun was all done, but then the Irish priest joined in and sang a solo during the last two lines. His deep voice clearly had not been used in a while, and right after the song he announced with his thick Irish accent "the last time I sung I was drunk, and the next time I sing I will be drunk!" Everyone raved with laughter, and I personally was relieved to see his funny Irish personality revealed after such a serious mass about helping the homeless.
Myeong-dong Cathedral is one of the only churches in Seoul that offers English Masses. But be prepared for unusual circumstances at special services around the holidays! You just might just see another mixed animal costume and a cool Irish priest in the future.
