FINAL! BLOGNIC 7 July – NYC, Manhattan 7 pm

7 July 2007 was the day Pope Benedict released the text of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum (though it went into force on 14 September)

We will have a blognic on the evening of Wednesday 7 July.

I will celebrate Holy Mass (Extraordinary Form) at Holy Innocents on 37th BTW Broadway and 7th at 6:00 pm.

We will then go about less than 10 minute walk to an Irish pub –

Tir na nOg
tirnanognyc.com

5 Penn Plaza
(8th Ave at 33rd St)
212-630-0249.

I picked Tir na nOg instead of Annie Moore’s because it is closer to Holy Innocents (shorter walk in the hot afternoon.)

You can come to Mass, or go to the pub a little early, but we are thinking 7:00-9:00 pm.

Buy your own drinks and your own snacks. Come and go as you please.

This is easy to get to, for sure… right across from Penn Station.

If you have not indicated your intention to come yet, using the poll below, please do.

It would help a lot if you could add a note about your participation in the combox, below, so that we can get a good picture.  Chime in again, even if you chimed in before.

    While your on the east coast, could you stop by Tiverton, RI for a blognic? Lots of good Portuguese restaurants in the area.

  2. rev96: I think there is going to be a Catholic Communication conference in Boston in August. I may get that way then!

  3. cregduff says:

    i think the idea of a third anniversary blognic is magnificent! I will help advertise it when you finalize the date and time. I will very much want to join in and assist as mass at Holy Innocents as well. (Friday and Sat are no good for me – and many others as this is usually the time of year when people make like nervous shepherds and get the flock out of the city.)
    Thanks for letting us know you’re coming to town,
    Ed Casey

  4. cregduff: Thanks for chiming in. A 3rd SP anniversary blognic seemed the right thing to do.

  5. C. says:

    Oremus pro Pontifice!

  6. Oremus pro Pontifice! Indeed! I should bring some buttons.

  7. Jack Hughes says:

    now if only I lived in America

  8. k3vin says:

    I think I can make Wednesday or Thursday. Brick by brick ….

  9. Jack Hughes: Then I must have a trip across the pond for another London blognic.

  10. Pedantic Classicist says:

    Awesome, I think my ship has finally come in: I will be in town all of next week, so should be able to come just about any of those times (depending, though, on my mother’s health: could you say a quick prayer for her?). I’d be happy to start up an impromptu “Latin speaking corner” if I am able to come ;) (Tom in NY: are you going to come too?)

    I’ll try to get my good friend in the Frassati fellowship to come as well.

  11. Pedantic: Latine loquamur!

  12. Tom in NY says:

    @Pedantic Classicist:
    Feria tertia, horis matutinis laborabo. Si celebratio feria quarta sit, posset. Etiam, nescio.

    Salutationes omnibus.

  13. It seems that Wednesday will be best – so far – and perhaps also something simple on Saturday morning?

  14. BTW… any ballgames in town during the week?

  15. Bryan says:

    @revs96…there are better Portuguese/Azorean restaurants in Fall River…:)

  16. JohnW says:

    Father are you still coming to Houston this summer?

  17. The Egyptian says:

    The curses of location, and an occupation that makes travel a nightmare, (dairy farming) do you ever come to west central Ohio ?
    Maybe someday Father, sigh

  18. Blognic Wednesday 7 July in the evening!

    Possible Blognic (coffee version) on Saturday.

  19. cregduff says:

    I am not at all sure whether many of the blognic attendees will be also assisting at mass. If so, it might be worthwhile to do near Penn which is also very near to Holy Innocents. Tir Na Nog is one of the best – though I realize you were there last time. Across the street at 1 Penn Plaza is Local West, which has a space outside on it’s second floor, with an outside bar and a great view of 8th Ave and the hustle and bustle of Madison Sq Garden and Penn Station. They have some finger food, etc.

    In the Grand Central area, there is a newish (like last year) Irish pub called the Perfect Pint on 45th St just off 3rd Ave. There are three floors and a magnificent roof space. Since it’s a Wed it’s likely that there wouldn’t be as big a crowd there as say a Friday, so there will be plenty of space, both inside and outside. It’s likely to be hot Wed and cooling off just a bit in the evening. They have better-than-average food fit for the pub set, and their beer selection is vast and international.

  20. FrCharles says:

    Bummer; I shall miss another one. I have Mass that night. In my prayer I will be encouraged by the devotion of all my WDTPRSer friends.

  21. FrCharles: There may be another on Sat morning, perhaps.

  22. FrCharles says:

    Excellent! Should there be no funeral, I shall try to make it! (The life of a parish priest)

  23. I have Mass in the Extraordinary Form every Wednesday at 7:00 pm. Literally any other night I’m free but not Wednesdays. So, I’ll have to miss this one too.

  24. Pedantic Classicist says:

    I am definitely planning on showing up (again, depending on my mom’s condition), and am looking forward to it. BTW, Father, do you know if there are any auxilia for the Mass in the Extraordinary Form provided (like maybe a small booklet or something) at Holy Innocents? I’m afraid I still don’t own a missal. Thanks.

  25. dawnmaria says:

    I will be there, unless it’s so hot that I won’t be able to walk down the street!

  26. Never too hot!

    This? Hot?

  27. P.McGrath says:

    Father Z:

    While you are in New York, will you be taking a side trip to Stony Point, in Rockland county, to visit the Salesians Marian Shrine, which includes, inter alia, a 48-ft. tall statue of Our Lady of the Rosary, the famous Rosary Way, and lots of other things?

    Also, the local parish has Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration.

  28. M Heller says:

    Father,
    Please let us know if there is a Saturday morning coffee gathering. That would be terrific.

  29. M Heller: I will. I need to locate a good place for it, however.

  30. PMcGrath: I won’t be going on there, but thanks for the tip about that!

  31. dawnmaria says:

    For a Saturday morning coffee, no place beats Pershing Square, which is right across 42nd street from Grand Central Station.

  32. dawnmaria: You are right about that. Pershing Square is great!

    But, should we maybe pick, say, a good bagel shop? Cheaper, perhaps, no?

  34. k3vin says:

    See you this evening!

  35. rssalazar says:

    Father Z,

    I am looking forward to this, my first ever blognic and, of course, meeting you and the other WDTPRSers. I go to Holy Innocents at least once a week for Holy Mass so this is a slam dunk!

    And to answer your question, the Mets are in town at Citifield for a night game this evening against the Reds and then host the Braves for weekend series starting this Friday evening.

  36. I had thought about trying to go to a ball game… but it is pretty hot.

  37. irishgirl says:

    Oh, I wish you could come to Upstate New York for a blognic, Father Z!

    Say, at Auriesville Shrine? It’s only an hour’s drive away from my house if I take the NYS Thruway. A little longer if I go through the towns on either side of the Mohawk River.

    Stay cool tonight, Father!

  38. I wonder if there is a way to stream this on the Z-cam…

  39. I found a way to stream LIVE from my iPhone!

    It is smooth when on wifi, not so smooth on regular 3G.

  40. techno_aesthete says:

    I’ll be at the Mass and blognic. Stay cool!

  41. Not so easy, but thanks!
