The House Committee today agreed to use all available means to communicate to residents the urgency of attending the house meeting next Wednesday, October 20 at 4 p.m. In the Asia Rrom.
At that meeting, U.S. Regional Fr. Duggan and the liturgy committee will revisit the Ambo controversy of ten years ago.
This is in the interest of communication and transparency.
This meeting will be to start the process of discussing the pros and cons of using the ambo and the suggested rearrangement of the main chapel that goes with it.
The suggestion is to place the ambo midway down the main aisle toward the back of the church but facing the altar.
Some things to consider:
1) Can the ambo even be reassembled, given its ten years in storage?
2) This is only done as a limited experiment with time to evaluate at the end.
3) Ample time for opinions and discussion will be provided.
4) The arrangement is not that different than that used during the Triduum.
Other aspects and considerations will be providedat at the house meeting.
