I found an interesting entry on a blog called Fish Eaters about how to establish what is called, but in my opinion, incorrectly a "stable group". As you know, some people want to interpret Summorum Pontificum so narrowly as to destroy their rights to have the older form of Mass. So, take a look at this:
I live in Butler County Pennsylvania where there
are 19 parishes and not a single TLM. I’m sure many people on the list
deal with situations like this as well. It is becoming obvious to me
that if I don’t pick the ball up and run with it, nobody is going to in
terms of building a group and petitioning a priest.
Some ideas I have had about going about this are:
1. Use a yahoogroup to build members in my geographic area (the only problem with this is that not everybody uses the Internet).
Have a "business card" printed with information about Summorum
Pontificum and my contact information and put it on the windshields of
cars that are at every Mass of these 19 parishes.
3. Use the information in #2 and have a classified add in the local newspaper.
4. Same as #3 but use the local cable TV community station to advertise.
can’t be the only person trying to figure out how to build a so-called
"stable group" in a community. We all need to become involved in doing
this in one capacity or another or Summorum Pontificum will become a
Anybody care to share ideas or experiences on finding people in any given community to call a "stable group"?
Doesn’t this give you ideas?
