News from Western Canada:
To be somewhat cliche, I’m a long time reader first time "emailer".
As of July 1st the FSSP community will finally be getting their own church building, Deo Gratias!
I take this excerpt off of the parish bulletin from www.divinemercy.ca.
Our first Mass in our new church will be on July 1st (the Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord), although the time for this Mass is yet to be determined, all are welcome to attend of course!
"Divine Mercy to Become Holy Family In accordance with a July 1 Decree of Archbishop Roussin, our community is moving permanently to 4851 Beatrice Street in Vancouver. We will be newly established Sunday July 6 as a full-fledged Personal Parish, under the new name of Holy Family Parish, for the "dedicated use of the typical edition of the Roman Missal promulgated by Blessed John XIII in 1962", with a recognized mission Mass for the Fraser Valley in Abbotsford. Deo Gratias! Although the German National Parish is suppressed as of June 30, Fr. Benno Burghardt will continue to offer an 11:00 am German Novus Ordo Mass until November, when he officially retires. Thereafter, the 11:00 am Mass will become a Traditional Latin Mass. In the interim, our High Mass will be at 9:00 am, beginning Sun Jul 6. Please keep this transition in your daily prayers."
Since Fr. Z likes both the TLM and good Chinese food, perhaps a trip to Vancouver can be arranged.
Congratulations to the whole diocese for this great development.
This is truly in keeping with the spirit of Summorum Pontificum.
The Archbishop of Vancouver gets official WDTPRS kudos. Also, I am happy that Archbp. Miller is there. I know him from my time in Rome. A fine fellow.
