On Monday, 20 March 2017, at 7 PM His Excellency Most Reverend Robert C. Morlino will celebrate a Pontifical Mass at the Throne (Extraordinary Form) in the Chapel of the Holy Name Heights in Madison (Bishop O’Conner Pastoral Center – 702 S. High Point Road).
Holy Mass is to be celebrated in honor of the Feast of St. Joseph, Foster Father of the Lord, Husband of Mary, Patron of the Church, of the Dying, of Fathers, and of Immigrants.
The music will be Gregorian Chant and polyphonic motets. We will sing the beautiful Litany of St. Joseph.
The rites are in the Church’s ancient, Traditional Form of the Roman Rite in Latin.
This year St. Joseph is celebrated on 20 March, instead of Sunday 19 March, because the Sunday of Lent “outweighs” the Feast. Please come to honor in this mighty intercessor and example of fatherhood and fidelity. Bring to him your petitions for your family, nation and Church. All are welcome.
Also, please mark your calendars for the evening of Wednesday, 31 May, the Queenship of Mary (Extraordinary Form). Bishop Morlino will celebrate a Pontifical Mass at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Monona.
