The Traditional Catholic Liturgical Year


     Just as the Latin Tridentine Mass is filled with beauty, reverence and symbolism,, so too is the traditional Catholic Liturgical Year.  Each month and each day of the week is named for a special devotion.  We can join in the richness of our Catholic faith by following the days, weeks, seasons and feastdays of the traditional calendar in a natural rhythm that brings us ever closer to God and our Holy Mother Church.
