Abp Sample Celebrates Candlemas with the FSSP in Rome

This past Sunday, on the feast of the Purification, the Fraternity of St Peter’s Roman parish, Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini, welcomed His Excellency Alexander Sample, Archbishop of Portland, Oregon, for the celebration of a Solemn Pontifical Mass. Our thanks to the parish for sharing these photos with us.

After he has been received at the door of the church, the bishop traditionally goes to pray at the altar of the Blessed Sacrament, before going to the sacristy to vest.

and makes its way through the neighborhood.
