I got this piece of news via e-mail:
Dear Fr Z.,
The chaplaincy set up in the archdiocese of Dublin to cater for those attached to the Mass and sacraments in the extraordinary form goes from strength to strength.
Daily Mass is celebrated in the church assigned to the chaplaincy namely St Kevin’s Harrington Street.Sung Mass is celebrated every Sunday and holy day.
There have been quite a number of baptisms and first Holy Communions. Yesterday it was announced that His Grace the Archbishop will preside at Solemn Mass on 29th June and will administer Confirmation in the old rite on that occasion.
This will be the first time since the 1960s that Confirmation will be so administered in Ireland.
Numbers attending continue to increase.
The music is of a very high quality. Yesterday Lassus Missa Octavi Toni was sung. On Pentecost Palestrina’s Missa Papae Marcelli will be sung whilst on Trinity Sunday Victoria’s Missa O Quam Gloriosum will be sung.
Pope Benedict has made his mark in Dublin!
Thank you for your excellent blog which I read every day. It is a mine of useful information and commentary.
God bless your work.
Brick by brick… a fine tradition in Ireland:TLM hodcarriers doing their part!
