11 Jan: Chicago – Pontifical TLM

Here is something to plan around if you are within striking distance of Chicago on 11 January ’09.  (WOW… not that far away!)

From a reader:

On Sunday, January 11th, the Most Reverend Joseph N. Perry, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Chicago, will celebrate a Pontifical High Mass for the External Solemnity of the Epiphany at the Shrine of Christ the King Sovereign Priest in Chicago.

Specializing in classical choral music, The Chicago Chorale will sing Victoria’s Missa O Magnum Mysterium and a variety of motets. This Pontifical Mass will be the finale to the “Gregorian Chant Workshop for the Serious Student”, which will be offered at the Shrine by Father Wulfran Lebocq, choirmaster of the Institute’s seminary in Griciliano, from January 9-11.

More information regarding this special event will soon be posted on the Institute’s website at: www.institute-christ-king.org

    Breviarylover, I presume you mean http://www.sanctamissa.org. Where exactly did you see it? I cannot find it on the site myself.

    What happened to Holy Family being the first Sunday after Epiphany?

    Where I was we did do an external solemnity for Ascension, but not Epiphany. The reasoning was that even before Vatican II Epiphany was not an HOD in America. It is a rubric of the new Mass the Epiphany get transferred when not an HoD- so it is not by the transference that it is not an HoD, and with Holy Family where it is you would lose a great feast in the old rite.

    I am not saying it isn´t allowed, as the bishop he can (per the 1962 rubrics) allow external solemnities for many feasts, I am just wondering whether this is such an act, or whether one is supposed to have the external solemnity, like we are required to do for Corpus Christi

    T.Falter, I went to the home page, clicked on ENGLISH, scrolled down and saw a saw a category saying What’s New, and clicked on the picture and it will give you a hole list of Masses that they have in the Extraordinary Form.
