From a reader:
"Beginning this past Sunday St. Paul’s Church, Christian Street in Philadelphia began having a weekly Latin Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. The parish is located in South Philadelphia and encompasses both St. Paul’s Church and the Church of St. Mary Magdalen of Pazzi. St. Mary Magdalen of Pazzi was founded in 1852 by St. John Nepomucene Neumann, then Bishop of Philadelphia, as the first Italian National Parish in this country. The current pastor of the parish is Fr. Gerald Carey.
The Traditional Latin Mass is every Sunday at 12 noon. There will also be Masses for each of the six Holy Days of Obligation in the United States, as well as for other feast days. The parish is scheduled to have its Forty Hours Prayer beginning on Lætare Sunday next Lent, and Fr. Carey hopes to have it according to the Traditional Roman Rite. The public recitation of the Divine Office is also being planned for the future.
The normal Sunday Mass at St. Paul’s will be a Sung Mass (with incense). However, Solemn Masses are scheduled for various Feast Days throughout the year. The first Mass yesterday was a Solemn Mass for the Feast of Christ the King and one is scheduled for next Sunday, being the Feast of All Saints.
The choir and schola cantorum are directed by Dr. Robert Hall and the organist is Mr. Lee Milhous. Yesterday, the Mass setting was Sir Richard Terry’s "Short Mass in C". The motets were Sir Edward Elgar’s Ave Verum Corpus, Lorenzo Perosi’s Laudate Dominum, and Te Sæculorum Principem sung to plainsong and falsobordone."
