From a reader:
Today, June 11, 2009, at 6PM, there will be a Solemn Mass for the Feast of Corpus Christi at the Church of the Holy Innocents (NYC) followed by a Procession in the Church and Benediction. Fr. Richard Trezza, OFM will be the celebrant, Fr Michael Barone deacon and Brian Graebe subdeacon. David Hughes will direct the choir that will sing Palestrina’s Missa Lauda Sion.
This Mass begins a Novena of Traditional Latin Masses offered for Vocations to the Priesthood and Priestly Sanctity to coincide with the beginning of the Pope’s Year for Priests. The Novena concludes with a Solemn Pontifical Mass for the Feast of the Sacred Heart, Bishop Fernando Rifan, celebrant. All of the Novena Masses will be celebrated in the presence of a First Class Relic of St. John Vianney.
