Holy Week at new independent chapel in Texas

    We had Fr. Garcia offer us the complete Holy Week liturgy at our small independent chapel!

    It was a lot of work, but it went very well. Many people worked hard to make this Holy Week a series of beautiful Catholic ceremonies for those who attended.
    I am very grateful for the generosity (time, money, expertise, serving, cooking, etc.) of several individuals.

    Father did an excellent job of staying faithful to the Church's liturgy -- keeping everything dignified and rubrically correct -- despite the challenges of personnel, equipment, and very short notice in a humble, relatively new chapel.

    Not pictured: the beautiful smell of frankincense, in particular during the midnight Mass. You can see in the picture how hazy it is -- that's the incense!

    These pictures are just the tip of the iceberg; I took hundreds of them to immortalize this very special week.

    More pictures will follow, after I get a chance to process them, etc.

  • Look at Fr. Adrian Garcia.  I hope he is well.
    We conclude logically that religion can give an efficacious and truly realistic answer to the great modern problems only if it is a religion that is profoundly lived, not simply a superficial and cheap religion made up of some vocal prayers and some ceremonies...

    Yes, he is doing well. He kept quite busy while he was here, always preparing for the next ceremony. I think he spent several hours before each ceremony. He arranged things very well, and did an excellent job with the Holy Week ceremonies.

  • I am glad that you were able to have a priest at your chapel for Holy Week. How wonderful.

  • Can someone be so kind to tell me who is Father Garcia? Where is he from? And where is he working, other than this chapel?

    He was trained at the SSPX seminary in La Reja, Argentina, and was ordained by Bishop de Galarreta in 2000.

    He currently resides in Fort Worth, TX.

    Knowing where he was trained, I wasn't surprised at all when I met him. All the usual hallmarks were there:

    Solid training, professional, serious about his priesthood and the Faith, level-headed, able to think clearly/precisely and make distinctions, zeal and respect for the Church's liturgy, Catholic attitude, etc.

    There's a good reason why the SSPX was my first choice for many years...

  • Is this at your private chapel or is this at another location?

    This is at our chapel, yes. It's on our property, so I suppose you could call it a private chapel. But we regularly invite everyone interested to attend, not just friends, so in that respect it's not so private.
