DUNEDIN – The first Sunday of November saw a new beginning in Dunedin with the celebration of the Mass according to the 1962 Missal promulgated by Pope John XXIII.
This form of the Mass has been termed the extraordinary form of the Roman rite by Pope Benedict XVI in his July 7 motu proprio Summorum Pontificum. Bishop Colin Campbell of Dunedin has established a weekly Sunday Mass in Dunedin for those who wish to attend this form of the Mass.
This Mass in Latin replaces the previous monthly celebration of this form of the Roman rite which was held on the first Saturday of the month.
A congregation of 45 people attended the first Sunday celebration, predominantly young families and students.
The new weekly celebration is in the former Dominican Priory chapel next to St Joseph’s Cathedral at 8.30am, with Fr Kevin McKone as celebrant.
Brick by brick!
