Mater Dei Catholic Church Irving, Texas
This morning, His Excellency Kevin Farrell, Bishop of Dallas, blessed the new parish Mater Dei Catholic Church for the Diocese of Dallas. Mater Dei is our family’s home parish.
This Holy Mass was stunning. Father Thomas Longua celebrated, Father Phil Wolfe served as deacon, and Father Flood served as subdeacon. Bishop Farrell blessed the building (he chanted it all in Latin) and later preached an encouraging homily about the need to evangelize our culture and teach the Catholic Faith in an era when many Catholics have not been rightly catechized.
Bishop Farrell’s words at the Mass and during the reception were very humble, kind, and beautiful. Everyone was so grateful to have him there, and he looked at home. A hearty thank you to Bishop Farrell and to the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter for making this parish possible.
