Photopost Request: Passiontide Veils 2023

Our next photopost series will be of your churches with the Crosses, statues and paintings veiled for Passiontide. Please send your pictures to for inclusion; remember to give us the name and location of the church, and always feel free to add any other information you think important. It’s not a bad idea to include a shot or two of the church before the veils are put up. We will also be glad to include any pictures of rose-colored vestments on Laetare Sunday, celebrations of the feast of St Joseph, or today’s feast of the Annunciation.

This has consistently been one of our most popular photopost series; last year, we made three separate posts, with nearly 90 photographs from nearly 30 different churches around the world. As usual, here is a bit of retrospective.
From the first post: the high altar of Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini, the FSSP church in Rome.
From the second post: a private chapel.
From the third post: veiling the Cross at the church of St Dominic and Shrine of the Most Holy Rosary, the Dominican church in London, England.
