Father Hendershott celebrates Mass in our Chapel

A Handmaid Charism, HPB Vocations, Monastery, News, Priests

By God’s great Providence we are beginning to have more Masses on our property in our recently finished Chapel. Since Bishop Stika blessed the Chapel and Monastery only days after our arrival, we have driven to local parishes for Mass but also have been blessed to have Fathers Patrick Resen, Antonio Geraldo, and John Dowling step up to offer to say Masses in our Chapel. Most recently, we enjoyed a Low Mass of the Extraordinary Form with newly ordained Father Hendershott and his family and were able to take a few photos we would like to share.

One of the beauties of the our Catholic Faith is that of the power and grandeur of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass…whether it be celebrated in Saint Peter’s or a small transformed garage on an East Tennessee hilltop…a priest still makes Christ present and brings us to Calvary. We are so grateful to enjoy this privilege and are profoundly indebted to all the priests who are helping us. God bless you.
