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.
