I just received noticed that His Excellency Edward Slattery of Tulsa, Oklahoma, has stepped up and will be the celebrant for the Pontifical Mass at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC on Saturday 24 April.
This is to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the pontificate of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI.
Card. Castrillon was originally scheduled.
As you may recall, Bp. Slattery has done some good things in Tulsa. Not only has he welcomed the Benedictine monks form Fontgombault at Clear Creek, but he has written well on matters liturgical for his Diocese of Tulsa.
A big WDTPRS OORAH for Bp. Slattery.
I received word that His Eminence William Card. Baum will attend. He is Archbishop Emeritus of Washington DC.
