Rorate was on the road yesterday and this time we were in North Carolina at St. Anthony of Padua Church in Mt. Holly (just outside of Charlotte). The church is run by priests of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX).
While we travel the globe and go to many traditional Latin Mass sites, we normally do not post pictures of the historic churches we visit in the major cities, and focus rather on the little-mentioned yet wonderful experiences we have in smaller towns.
St. Anthony's has a High Mass every Sunday at 9a.m. The Catholics in the pews were warm and welcoming. And the sermon preached by a fine young priest -- which focused for Pentecost on the Seven Gifts of the Holy Ghost -- was inspiring and informative.
See below for the address and phone number of St. Anthony's:
