Rorate Caeli

Rorate on the Road: Mater Dei (FSSP) in Texas

Once in a while when we’re on the road, we like to highlight churches that don’t get much attention, at least with our global audience. Today, we had the pleasure of assisting at a Sung Mass at Mater Dei Catholic Church, run by the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), in Irving, Texas. 

The beginning (Septuagesima) of this year’s early Easter cycle was on full display as the Christmas decorations were joined by the purple tabernacle veil and vestments. 

There are five Sunday Masses at Mater Dei and we’re told they’re all packed. The 9 a.m. today was standing room only. To accommodate the demand, they are now raising money to expand the church. If you will to contribute, check out this page and contact the parish (CLICK HERE).
