The retreat is this Saturday, 24 November, at the Church of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Newark, New Jersey. It begins at 10:30 AM. It includes three spiritual reflections as well as altar server instruction and review. For those who can afford it, there’s a small admission cost to cover lunch ($10) which is included.
The retreat concludes with Solemn Mass Pro Pace at 3 PM as part of the Forty Hours Devotion that the Pastor of Mt. Carmel in Newark, Msgr. Joseph Ambrosio, holds every year over the last weekend before Advent.
Any man who serves the Mass or would like to learn to serve the Mass may attend the retreat.
Of course, everyone is invited to assist at the Solemn Mass. (If you’re anywhere in the area, you should try to assist at this Mass and then visit the nearby Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart. It’s one of the most beautiful cathedrals in this country.)
The coordination of the Retreat and Solemn Mass was made possible by the generous hospitality of Msgr. Ambrosio and with support from the Agnus Dei and Regina Coeli Councils of the Knights of Columbus. The Regina Coeli Council is dedicated to the Usus Antiquior, by the way.
