A note from a reader about a friend of mine, Fr. Aidan Logan, chaplain for the Marine Corps Camp Lejeune, NC:
Great news in the Wilmington, NC area – another Mass in the Extraordinary Form! Fr. Aidan Logan (a Trappist monk/Navy chaplain) is a very holy priest, and was the Catholic chaplain at the Naval Academy during my last two years there (2005-2006). He and I became good friends, and I ran into him in the Charlotte, NC airport before my pilgrimage to Lourdes last Summer. He is one of the very patient priests (along with Fr. Parkerson) who "set me straight" towards the seminary while I was in college.Here is Fr. Aidan in action. I hope many Catholics in that area of NC can take advantage of this weekly Mass:Here is the notice from the Diocese of Raleigh’s website:The Forma Extraordinaria of the Mass will be celebrated every Sunday at the Catholic Chapel at Camp Lejeune beginning October 4. Father Aidan Logan, one of the Catholic Chaplains on the Marine Base will be the celebrant. At this time the Mass will be at 12:30 PM.The Catholic Chapel is located in the St. Francis Xavier Building 17. To get on the base, a temporary pass is needed and can be obtained by stopping at the Visitor’s Center. A valid driver’s license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance are needed to receive a pass.
At present, five churches in the Diocese of Raleigh have scheduled regular celebrations of the Forma Extraordinaria:Sacred Heart Cathedral in Raleigh at 4:30 PM, fourth Sunday of every month.Sacred Heart Church in Dunn at 12:00 PM every Sunday.Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Rocky Mount at 6:00 PM every Sunday.Saint Mary Church in Wilmington at 7:00 PM, the last Sunday of every month.
