From U.S. News and World Report:
The Covington area building might lack a steeple or stained glass, but it hosts a growing group that gathers to celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass, a solemn and ancient form of Catholic worship spoken almost entirely in the Latin language by a priest who faces away from the congregation.
Since its establishment last August, Our Lady of Mount Carmel has grown from 250 founding members to more than 600, making it one of the largest in the Southeast, said the Rev. Damian Zablocki. It’s one of seven places in the archdiocese of New Orleans, including St. Patrick’s Church in downtown New Orleans and Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Kenner, that regularly offers the Latin Mass.
