    Kudos to those brave priests who did not give in to the “reckovation” fad following the Second Vatican Council. Those old High Altars are really beautiful, and we’re belssed to have one nearby at Our Lady of Czestochowa out here in Western, MA.

    Here are some links:

    They have a TLM about once per month and actually remove the Nouvus Ordo altar of sacrifice,
    With the exception of the missing altar rail (They use a prie-dieux)we’re able to experience the TLM as close to historically accurate as possible.

    There is a monthly TLM at the chapel of St. Johns Cemetery in Queens every Sunday at 9 a.m.. Also, last week, on Veterans Day, our pastor celebrated the TLM at St. Matthias parish in Ridgewood, Queens. Our Church has not been “wreckovated” and we still have altar rails, etc. As Father Z says, “brick by brick!”
