I got this by e-mail:
It is my sincere honor to inform all of you who have yet to hear that as of 3:00PM today, Wednesday January 16th, Fr. Joseph Fessio, S.J. has been approved by Ave Maria University (The Chaplain’s Office) to publicly celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass according to the 7th Editio Typical of the Missale Romanum promulgated by Blessed Pope John XXIII of 1962 in the ballroom Chapel in the Student Union Building!!! During a meeting of all the Priests on campus this afternoon (1:30PM-3:00PM), Fr. Fessio explained to his brother Priests that he has received his Certification [The idea that Fr. Fessio needed certification to say Mass is very strange. It does not seem to be in keeping with Summorum Pontificum.] to celebrate the Mass in this form per request of His Excellency Bishop Dewane of the Diocese of Venice, Florida which was administered by Fr. James Fryar, FSSP this past Saturday night, Fr. Fryar being the Bishop’s delegate to Ave Maria in matters of the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. It is prudent to also note that Fr. Eamon McManus and Fr. Matt Lamb are also willing and capable of celebrating the Mass according to the Extraordinary Form but have yet to receive their certification from Fr. Fryar to fulfill Bishop Dewane’s request. As of this moment, Fr. Fessio has been approved for public celebration at the following times:
Wednesday (weekly): 7:00AM or 7:50AM (yet to be finalized)
Sunday (weekly): 8:00AM (a new slot of 9AM will be created to retain the celebration of the Mass according to the Ordinary Form in Latin)
However, Fr. Fessio will be out of town this upcoming Sunday the 20th, hence the first celebration of the Extraordinary Form of the Mass will be one week from today at either 7:00AM or 7:50AM in the ballroom Chapel.
