Traditional Churches In The Diocese Of Austin, Tx

Recommended Posts

ToJesusMyHeart

Does anybody know of any conservative, traditional, in-communion Churches in the diocese of Austin?

 

  :pope2:

 

By conservative, I mean ones that haven't been infected by the "spirit" of Vatican II.

 

No, I am not a sedevacantist. No, I do not hate Vatican II itself, but yes, I am very repulsed by the "spirit" that has come out of it.

 

The V2 documents are great, the gross misinterpretation of liturgical reform...not so much.

 

So what I am looking for is: no clapping during Mass, no banal music, no kumbaya holding hands during the Our Father, everyone kneels during the Consecration (including the choir), minimal usage of lay persons handling the Lord for Holy Communion, peppering the liturgy with Latin would be great, etc. I think you get the idea. 

 

Before anyone gets all upset, let's just remember who else feels how I feel:

This is truly not intended to be a debate (if I wanted that, I could post in the debate board) about my spirituality. I am genuinely seeking to find churches that I can attend without being submerged in the annoyance of the "spirit" of V2. 

 

God bless you and thank you! :)

Did the clapping for the newly-confirmed today push you over the edge, sweet TJMH? Hey, don't leave us! Let's fix the problem instead of running from it!

Have you looked up the fssp in Austin? Also try searching Austin on the New Liturgical Movement website. They often showcase churches that are 'doing it right'. So to speak.

I am coming up with a couple leads. :)

 

Rector of the local cathedral offered Mass in the extraordinary form a couple years ago. Even if he is not still there now, certainly it is worth looking up Fr. Albert Laforet

Also, I do not know if this is up to date or not, but check this out.

I lived in Austin for six years and my suggestions would be the following:

 

1) Saint Mary Cathedral

http://smcaustin.org/

 

2) St. Catherine of Siena

http://www.stcatherine-austin.org/

 

3) Saint John Neumann

http://www.sjnaustin.org/

 

4) Emmaus Catholic Parish (Though I've never actually attended Mass here.)

Question: Are SSPX sacraments valid?

St. Catherine of Siena is pretty conservative in attitude, preaching, and within the congregation, but the mass itself is more contemporary. I go there a lot.

 

As far as very traditional go, St. Mary Cathedral downtown would be the place to go. They have mass in Latin as well, if that interests you.

I live in Austin and have lived here my whole life, I'm pretty familiar with many of the churches here. And for what you're looking for I think St. Mary Cathedral would be the best. I go there every now and then for confession. They have it every day before the daily mass at noon, and every priest I've gone to there has been fantastic.

Thank you, Lina! I'm actually about 2 hours away from Austin, but I would love to check out the cathedral sometime. :)

 

The Cathedral is a beautiful church!! They recently remodeled the outside of it because it's so old and it's quite beautiful. Inside it has many of the traditional church statues and design, but it's simple and not over the top which I like in churches.

 

I must warn you though, parking around the Cathedral can be a challenge. Be prepared to drive around for a bit to find a spot. But it's worth it, and it's close to the Capitol Building if you want to check that out as well. :)
