Gaudete Sunday and Rorate Mass Photopost 2021 (Part 1)

We’re off to a great start in this year’s first post of Gaudete Sunday liturgies and Rorate Masses, with six different countries represented! To judge from the number of submissions we have already received, there will be at least two more in this series, and there is always room for more, so if you’d like to contribute, please send your photos to, remembering to include the name and location of the church, and any other information you think important. And again I say, Rejoice! for the good work of evangelizing through beauty continues.
