St. Henry Catholic Church in Buckeye, Arizona

Wonderful things are happening at the St. Henry Catholic Church in Buckeye, Arizona. Pastor Fr. William J. Kosco is introducing a wonderful reform in liturgy and music and thereby attracting ever higher Mass attendance and support from the community.

Buckeye is a small, mostly hispanic, rural community southwest of Phoenix. Father Kosco is building a church, but as with most church building, he began with a hall, chapel, and is now in the planning stages for the offices and classrooms for catechesis, then will come the rectory and church. After attending the sacred music colloquium last year, he was inspired to learn to sing the Mass and is now saying Masses ad orientem.

Here are some images of the chapel.
