An interesting note: A parishioner made the vestments.

New Evangelization!


Great photos of their building project.  Really interesting.

    Great news!

  3. Charles E Flynn says:

    Bishop Thomas Tobin has invited the FSSP to staff St. Mary on Broadway, in Providence:,9981

  4. Kevin says:

    Beautiful vestments. I wish I had that talent. Maybe this is also the start to the reform of the L.A. religious congress…. :)

    Another good pariah in the Los Angeles area is St. Peter Chanel in Hawaiian Gardens. It is staffed by the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, has frequent confessions, solid preaching, reverent Mass, and no altar girls.

    I have also heard that there is a parish in Alhambra that celebrates a more traditional Mass.

  6. Discerning Altar Boy says:

    YES HE DID! That makes it the 3rd regularly offered EF Mass in the smallest state. I never cease to thank God for our good shepherd in Providence.

  7. Clinton R. says:

    “I have also heard that there is a parish in Alhambra that celebrates a more traditional Mass.”

    Yes, St. Therese in Alhambra has the traditional Mass in Latin every Sunday at 1:00 PM.

  8. John Nelson says:

    Right you are, Clinton R. It was the site of the recent FSSP sponsored sacred music symposium. A week of glorious music. Culminating in this Lovely.

  9. PTK_70 says:

    If my experience in Phoenix is any indication, this parish will quickly outgrow its smallish worship space and, should the homilist have a solid grasp of Spanish, the 5pm Mass will be especially well attended.
