Development at Ave Maria University: TLM added to schedule

This is in from Ave Maria University:

Dear Ave Maria Community Members,

After extensive discussion involving the University’s leadership and priests and others, the Chaplain’s Office is happy to announce that our newly adjusted Mass schedule for Ave Maria University has been approved and will be implemented starting on Tuesday, February 19, 2008.  The old schedule remains largely the same, but with the following additions or adjustments.  Flyers containing the new schedule will be available outside the chapel door.  Please be aware that the Extraordinary Form Latin Mass, in the absence of a qualified priest celebrant, becomes a Novus Ordo Latin Mass when necessary.  [That’s reasonable, but I’d be happy to sub if needed.] Sunday’s Morning Prayer will be at 7 AM.  May all these opportunities for prayer be a true spiritual benefit to the entire community.   [Yes!  That is the point.  I am glad the letter stresses this at the end.]

Blessings, Fr. Robert Garrity

What a great development!

I now urge all those students involved in the older form of Mass to be exemplary in their decorum and warm in their expressing joy.

    I guess students won’t be able to stay up late and party to get to 7:30 AM Mass. :)

  2. Joshua says:

    We have the same time interval (7:30 AM is our TLM, and 9 am is the Latin NO following it)

    We have been able to pull off a High Mass every Week, and still have time to take down and set up for the NO. Of course all of our Masses, other than the first every day (which is always TLM) are Latin NO’s, so there might be less set up required for us…still I hope they can pull off the same
