On Saturday, December 16th, parishes across the District celebrated the Rorate Caeli Mass, a candlelit, early-morning Mass in honor of Our Lady. The Mass is an Advent tradition of extraordinary beauty in the Church, the candles amid the darkness shining as reminders of the Light Who is soon to come into the world. The sacred grandeur of this Mass is a sight to behold, and we bring you here Rorate Caeli, from Tacoma to Texas, from the west of Canada to the Atlantic shore.
