From a reader:
Thank you for your blog, your collect translations, and your devotion to the Tridentine Rite. I pray for you every night before bed, please pray for me.
I wanted to pass along some information about this wonderful bunch of young women who formed their own chant group and have been singing High Mass at the Sacred Heart of Jesus parish in Grand Rapids, MI (unfortunately, the only extraordinary form parish in our diocese). They put out a CD last year and here is a clip promoting it:
This is not my home parish, but our family tries to get over to attend the Mass there whenever we can. I have heard this group on multiple occasions and they truly glorify God with their singing.
I attended the Easter Sunday Mass there last year and they added much beauty on a such sacred feast. I remember sitting in the pew hearing an angelic rendition of O Filii et Filiae. I had not looked back at loft to see who was singing. So, I was shocked during communion when a group of four high school age girls come down from the loft to receive Eucharist. I was even more surprised to learn from the new parish music director, Dr. David Saunders, that these young woman had formed the group of their own initiative.
Great pastoral work by Father Robert Sirico bringing TLM to our youth! Please give Sancta Schola Caecilia Father Z kudos.
Brick by brick!
Fr. Z kudos!
