The Mass was sparsely attended; the celebrant (and new pastor) was superb. A very gentle, reverent, self-effacing style, with a fantastic homily that gave the basics about today's feast and how it relates to our lives.
Here are some shots of this beautiful church.
According to my friends, this is a historical Spanish statue that the previous pastor acquired.
The beautiful high altar and apse.
Each of these shields has a Marian title on it, such as Mystical Rose, Virgin of Virgins, Morning Star, Gate of Heaven etc.
Stained glass showing the Immaculate Conception and the BVM with St. Anne.
This is a little chapel at the very back, dedicated to Our Lady of Miraculous Healing.
