Passiontide Photopost 2018 (Part 4)

We finally come to the conclusion of our four-part series of churches with veils for Passiontide; I believe we have even surpassed last year’s bumper crop, in terms of the number of individual churches. To all our readers, we wish a most blessed Holy Week!

Holy Innocents - New York City



Trinità dei Pellegrini - Rome, Italy (FSSP)


St Patrick - Wilmington, Delaware


St Mary’s - Amsterdam, New York
Sacred Heart - Albany, New York
St Joseph’s - Troy, New York
Holy Family - Columbus, Ohio
St Mark’s - Perry County, Indiana
St Paul - Tell City, Indiana
rectory chapel of same
St Mary’s - Pine Bluff, Wisconsin
Saint Andrew’s School, Parañaque City, Philippine Islands
I think this must be the smallest veiled cross we’ve ever shown in one of these posts. The Mass was celebrated on the feast of St Benedict by the Benedictine chaplain, hence the gold vestments and the tunicled servers, a Spanish custom adopted by the Filipinos.



Immaculate Heart of Mary Oratory, at the Parish of the Five Wounds - San José, California
