No Catholic School Activities on Sunday. Should this take place here?

After months of nudging Catholics to reclaim Sunday as a day to attend Mass and spend time with family, New Orleans Archbishop Gregory Aymond is mandating that Catholic schools clear their calendars that day each week.

Aymond began asking schools last year to tweak practice schedules and reschedule social events so harried families could dedicate their Sundays to worshipping and staying close to home. This year, the request took on new urgency, and by the 2014-15 school year, it will be an official policy of the archdiocese.

“It’s rooted in the fact that people have a number of obligations and commitments. Our society is fast-paced,” Aymond said. “In living such a hectic life, people neglect sometimes, not purposefully, the very basics of faith and family.”

Do you think that this would be a good idea in the Archdiocese of Washington?

This move is a prelude to the coming Sunday law that SDA's have been warning the world about for over a century. Wake up, repent and remember the true Sabbath day to keep it holy. Receive not the mark of the beast!!!
