Rector of Texas Cathedral Offers Solemn Mass in Cathedral with Assistance of Fellow Diocesan Priest and Transalpine Redemptorists

One of our seminarian readers sent in the following photos of a Solemn Mass offered within St. Mary's Cathedral in Austin, TX by the rector, Fr. Albert Laforet.

The Deacon was Fr. Tommy Chen, assistant priest at St. Cyril and Methodius Church in Shiner, TX, a parish which offers both forms. The subdeacon is Br. Jean Marie, FSSR, of the Translalpine Redemptorists. Other Transalpine Redemptorists functioned within this Mass as well.

Aside from the liturgy, the pictures afford some interesting views of the cathedral church itself. I would point out the very interesting geometric design work within the sanctuary, and in particular, the rather interesting high altar.
