In our Maronite Catholic parish, a paten is used. Guess that makes us “traditional”. Of one thing I am certain, our pastor is very spiritual and insistent on proper respect for the Eucharist.

Paten is used in all services at our church, including the Sunday at 5 p.m. one as well as the Latin Mass. Carmelite priests run our church, and it is traditional and reverent.
