    These three priests represent an interesting and encouraging cross-section of priests offering the TLM. Father Talarico was ordained this past summer and assigned as rector of the ICKSP apostolate in West Orange, NJ. Father Trezza is a Franciscan who offers the TLM regularly throughout the New York metro area. Father Miara is a young diocesan priest who also offers the TLM in the NYC area and has organized several Latin Mass pilgrimages.

  2. Dutch,

    Yep! You’re right.

    That’s one of the reasons they were chosen to be the Sacred Ministers for this Mass.

  3. Dutch,

    Yep! You’re right!

    That’s one of the reasons why they were asked to be the Sacred Ministers for this Mass.

  4. Will says:

    Does anyone know if it will be followed by a Traditional Latin Blessing of Throats?

  5. No, it will not be followed by a traditional blessing of throats. Isn’t that done on Feb. 3? This Mass will be on Feb. 2 – the day before.
