Traditional Latin Mass (Tridentine Mass) independent chapel, located 20 minutes east of San Antonio, between Marion and Seguin. Traditional Catholic priests serving San Antonio, Austin, Houston, Corpus Christi, and surrounding areas by offering the 1962 Mass (pre Vatican 2) exclusively. St. Dominic's Chapel is traditional Catholic, rejecting the changes of Vatican 2. We only wish to remain Roman Catholic, even as the post-Vatican II Conciliar Church becomes Protestant. We choose to follow the first 261 popes, rather than the last 5!

Fr. Zendejas Sermons – Fr. Zendejas’ written sermons or “Blue Papers” can be found every week on this website.
Catholic Faith Question – What percent of Catholics attended Mass every week in 2014?
Read the latest sermon from Fr. Zendejas, which is mostly the contents of Fr. Patrick de la Rocque’s recent sermon about the upcoming Year of Mercy and fifty years of Vatican 2. Should Traditional Catholics celebrate fifty years of Vatican 2? Or should they maintain a firm resistance to everything associated with Vatican 2 and its spirit, which is Modernism (a heresy condemned by St. Pius X)
Blue Papers are written sermons, discussing important points of Catholic doctrine that the faithful should learn about, understand, and discuss. They are written shortly before they are released, so they are always relevant to the problems Catholics face on a daily basis, whether in the modern world or in the various traditional Catholic churches they attend.
