A reader sent me a reminder about the upcoming conference in Ireland.  It seems very interesting.  I wish I could attend.

    If you do manage to attend, consider a visit to Ireland’s North West coast. Free lodgings assured…

    I own Fr. Manfred Hauke’s book. It’s actually called “Women in the Priesthood?” It’s his thesis and a fascinating read, if you like books that are 500+ pages. : )

    Also (I may be wrong) but I think the Lassus Scholars (which sing at the latin mass in Dublin twice a month) are singing for the mass in Cobh Cathedral which I think will have something to do with the conference. We Will be singing Palestrina’s Missa Papae Marcelli.

  4. This sounds like a wonderful conference!

    I am in Dublin at the time and may make my way down there…

    God bless!
