Now in New York and in many places the Latino Mass is growing ever popular. Cubans in traditional Latino costumes–the men in tight trousers and the ladies in flouncy skirts–have been flocking to the traditional Latino Mass. With steel bands, bongo drums and ‘charismatic’ music, the Masses are enlivened with colorful vestments, processions with statues of the Blessed Virgin dressed in gorgeous robes, and some very happy people.
