Christmas 2021 Photopost (Part 3)

This is our final Christmas photopost for this year, and the last for liturgies celebrated within the calendar year 2021, so I want to reiterate to all our contributors past and present how grateful we are to you for sharing these beautiful images with us. We will start in on the Epiphany next week, so there is still plenty of time to send your photos to As always, we are glad to include both the EF and OF, as well as the Ordinariate or Eastern liturgies, and ceremonies such as the blessing of water or chalk. Keep up the good work of evangelizing though beauty!
