Quad Cities: regular TLMs in Davenport and Iowa City

From a WDTPRSer:

Reverend Father,

I first must tell you that I greatly enjoy reading WDTPRS. I find myself on the site daily. That being said, would you mind posting the following information on your blog?

Una Voce Quad Cities is pleased to announce that the Extraordinary Form will now be offered every Sunday in Davenport, Iowa at 4:00 p.m. at St. Anthony’s Chuch, beginning this coming Sunday, August 3rd. Thanks to the gracious permission of His Excellency, Martin Amos, Bishop of Davenport and the Holy Father for Summorum Pontificum, the TLM makes its return to the Quad Cities Area.

The TLM will also be offered every Sunday at 1:30 p.m. at St. Wenceslaus Church in Iowa City.

Thank You.

In Cordibus Iesus et Mariae

    This is fantastic news from one who was there! And many thanks to Bishop Amos, who sent six of the priests of the Diocese to St. John Cantius in Chicago for training. The first Mass was beautiful, of course and about 250 attended the Solemn High Mass celebrated by Father Scott Lemaster at St. Anthony’s while another at least 200 attended at St. Wenceslaus in Iowa City with Father Appel. For those who have been waiting for this sublime Mass to return to the area after so many years, this was a great day of rejoicing. Here is a link to the article in the Diocesan newspaper, which is not known for its conservative views-quite the contrary.

    Nice article!
    Not surprising, as a diocesan newspaper should reflect the bishop.
    Seeing how Bishop Amos sent six priests to Cantius in Chicago…
    God bless him!
    Now, how about some pics for the rest of us? The small pic in the article looks promising as far as that particular church. At least it still had the old high altar.

    Does anybody know who are the 6 priests who trained? I know 2 priests in that diocese and wondered if it was one of them. I haven’t spoken with them in 2 or 3 years though.

  4. Fr. A says:

    …and once again, the “generous permission” of the bishop is not needed; only a priest who will say the Mass for the people in his parish. Perhaps a “thank you” to the bishop in regard to sending the priests for training would have been better.
