Novus Ordo Mass ad orientem in Texas
in the Renovated St Theresa's Sugarland
I recently had the pleasure and honor of delivering two presentations at St Theresa's Catholic Sugarland (outside Houston) on topics relating to my book The Crucified Rabbi, specifically on how the liturgical and sacrificial customs of the Old Testament find their fulfillment in the Catholic Mass, liturgy, architecture, and vestments.
St Theresa's, under the leadership of Father Stephen Reynolds, renovated their sanctuary which was previously lacking in what we might call the "beauty of holiness."

And here's the daily Mass chapel after:
Do you want to renovate your church and return it to the "beauty of holiness"? Why not go with the same architect: Duncan G. Stroik.
