    Wonderful news!
    If every parish had such a group we’d be so much better off.

  2. PMcGrath says:

    You realize, of course, that the TLM is slightly different Down Under:


    V. Dominus vobiscum, g’day
    R. Et cum spirituo tuo, mate
    V. Oi, auxilium nostrum in nomen Domini
    R. Qui faecit caelum et Foster’s

    (end ecclesiastical silliness)

    No-one drinks Foster’s DownUnder… Every Aussie knows that…

    In Wang… the drink of choice is a Bundy & Cola.

    It seems we have a reputation for being a pack of boozers and wallys WONDERFUL!!
    Come to Wang and I promise a beer for all those who want one…after Mass of course ;)

    to pick up on Steve’s comment…

    “If every parish had such a group we’d be so much better off.”

    …and it is not that difficult to do.

    1. set up a blogspot (good looking one)posting propers for every Sunday and Holy day.
    2. send link to it to Bishop and all diocesan priests
    3. send link to all other ‘Traditional Mass’ groups
    4. Make sure all PP’s of diocese and Bishop has copy of Summorum Pontificum (send them one anyway).
    5. Visit local PP and bishop – they know about the society and SP by now. Request a regular Sunday mass. Ask the bishop to help you to organise the Mass.
    6. If the only priest in the diocese prepared to come and say the mass lives a long way away, pass the hat around and pay him to come. If only once.
    7. Advertise the Mass in local newspaper and send in well written press releases to local media and any church bulletins or gazettes, along with copies of Summorum Pontificum.
    8. Write or email fitting ‘thankyou’s’ to all involved if Mass is achieved ie. Bishop, PP for permission to use his church. Take photos and spread them around. Write report of Mass and send photos with it to media above.
    9. Be persistent, Never give up – you’ve got nothing to loose and the Mass to gain.
    10 Pray.

    “Whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, and enthusiastically act upon must inevitably come to pass.”…with God’s help.

    Excellent news, that’s been worked for I know for years – if only here in Tasmania we could get a EF Mass more than once a month; if only there were such in Launceston and not solely in Hobart!
