Additional observations Holy Rosary is a beautiful and historic parish which first opened its doors in 1894, and is the first Dominican parish and priory established in the Pacific Northwest. It is located near downtown Portland, close to the convention center. It has some beautiful artwork, and many traditional devotions.
Dominican rite?? Now I’m totally confused. How, if any, does that differ from the Roman or Latin rite?
I used to know people who attended that church. It’s definitely Roman Catholic. In fact, I always assumed that it was staffed by diocesan priests.
Mike, many of the Orders have their own Rite, as do some cities, such as Milan, though not used very often. We are all taught that there is only one Rite in the Roman Catholic Church, but that is not correct. Many Rites belong to the Church and have their own liturgies. Who knew?
Bob One: YES! There is liturgical diversity in the Roman Catholic Church! The Carthusians, for example, also have their own form of the liturgy.
I attend here several times per month. Dominican rite is nearly identical to the Low Latin Mass.
What are the relics on display.?
