I left a bag of opened Porcelain mortar in the garage for a week and during that time the temperature got below freezing. Can I use this mortar or does it have to be thrown out?

As long as it is dry, you are good to use it. If it has been exposed to excess humidity in any temperature it will harden in the bag.
