The liturgical reform bears absolutely no relation to what is called "desacralization" and in no way intends to lend support to the phenomenon of "secularizing the world." Accordingly the rites must retain their dignity, spirit of reverence, and sacred character.

Dress Code:

We will visit the Church most days, so dress with modesty in mind. (Men, no shorts. Women, modest clothes.) We ask you to dress nicely for the Masses on Thursday and Friday. Everyone attending this conference knows what it means to dress “nicely,” and we’ll simply leave it at that.

However, regarding the Nuptial Mass on FRIDAY, make sure you’re comfortable. The Old Mission Church is air conditioned, but with so many bodies filling it, doesn’t always feel air conditioned. Moreover, there is not excessive space. Please dress comfortably. We apologize that the Old Mission Church is not as luxurious as some modern structures—but if our Lord Jesus Christ suffered on the Cross for three hours, surely we can manage for one hour!
