FLORIDA ALERT: TALLAHASSEE – TLM 8 June

More good news, this time in Florida.  Since what was sent in the hated pdf format, I will simply refer you to the note I got.

Hello Fr. Z!

My name is Stephen Mozier, a layman and Oblate of St. Benedict from Tallahassee, Florida. I am writing to you today to let you know that we are going to be having a Tridentine Latin Mass at the Co-Cathedral of St. Thomas More here in Tallahassee on Sunday, June 8, 2008 at 2 PM.  Here is the link to our parish bulletin, announcing the TLM (it’s on page 3).

It would be wonderful if there was a good turnout for this mass!  [Indeed... for every Mass.] It is a one-time shot, though if successful it may lead to more TLMs being held here in our eastern area of the diocese (of Pensacola-Tallahassee).  May God bless this endeavor, and if you will, please spread the word! 

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Stephen Mozier, OblSB

    This is exciting news! The co-cathedral is right across the street from the campus of Florida State University- with some 40,000 students. I do hope it continues beyond the summer. It will be great for exposure of the TLM to young Catholics. Though this does make me quite jealous- here at the University of Florida we have to drive an hour to Ocala for the Traditional Mass.

    Dear Fr. Z;
    We in Southwest Florida are indeed fortunate to have TLM in Naples Florida every Sunday at 8:00AM at St. Agnes Chapel, and starting Sunday May 4th, we will have TLM at Resurection Parish in Ft. Myers Florida.

    That Mass is scheduled for the first and third Sunday of the Month at 5:30 PM. Hopefully if enough people attend, perhaps it may turn into a weekly service.

    We have a wonderful bishop in the Diocese of Venice FL, – Bishop Frank Dewayne – who is very open to the spiritual needs of traditional Catholics. Summorum Pontificum in action!

    For those of us in St. Augustine, FL, I guess Tallahassee is closer. And besides, I hear they actually have hills in Tallahassee, as well as a reconstruction of Mission San Luis. We’ll just keep praying over here on the Atlantic coast.

    Deo Gratias for the Latin Mass. I go to Mass
    every Sunday at 9 a.m. at St. Thomas More, 550 Riverview
    Avenue, Sanford, Florida. (407) 872-1007

    I am so thrilled to hear of the Tridentine Latin Mass being celebrated at the co-cathedral! I live in Panama City Beach right now and have been trying to get the Priests here to help us to get this going and am not getting anywhere, unfortunetly. I pray that the TLM will be everywhere for those who pray for it. Lets all pray for Holy Priests and Bishops to follow Pope Benedict in all things especially bringing back the TLM to all!!!! Amen!

    I will be telling everyone I know. I may be moving to Texas before then where thanks to God, there already is a church there that has the TLM everyday!!! BUt if I am still here I will certainly be there with my veil on! I pray that God will bless this Priest that is such a good holy Priest to receive many graces for this Mass and many more to come!

    I pray that the church of St. Thomas More will be over-flowing with people out the door on that beautiful day! Thanks be to God!!

    Does anybody have any info about the progress of the TLM petition request
    signed by over 50 people for St Joseph’s in Mandarin here in the diocese
    of St Augustine? I am really frustrated by the lack of support we get here
    in this diocese. Not everybody can get a young family up and dressed to downtown Jax by
    8 a.m. on Sunday.

  10. Mary Gibson says:

    FYI – in other TLM petition news, there is a petition that has already been signed by over 80 people at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul MN when it was available in campus ministry/Catholic Studies offices.

    Now it’s online, but no one has published the online address!! If you are a UST student/faculty/alum/neighbor who would participate in a TLM at UST, go sign it at: http://www.petitiononline.com/ustef/petition.html

    An article about the petition was published last Friday in the Aquin campus newspaper (it actually made the front page!), http://www.stthomas.edu/aquin/0708/080425.pdf
