Assumption Photopost 2016

Thank you to all the readers who sent in their photos for our Assumption photopost! Starting at the top, I’d like to take special note of a Mass at Fort Hood, a US military base in Texas; according to the organizers, it seems to be the first High Mass in about 45 years in a US Military Chapel. Additionally, EWTN’s Extraordinary Form focused show Extraordinary Faith was also present and did interviews before the Mass with the chaplains.

Reader note: since a solemn Mass could not be celebrated for lack of clerics, both the thurifer and crucifer were tunicled. Additionally, it was the first Mass in the older form at this parish since around the time of the council.
