Philadelphia: Solemn TLM – 28 June

From a reader:

A traditional Latin Missa Cantata (Mass in the Extraordinary Form) has been scheduled for 3:00 PM on Sunday, June 28, 2009 in anticipation of the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul at the Church of St. Paul, on Christian St. between 9th and 10th Sts. in South Philadelphia.

Parking will be available across the street from the church. The church, which is very close to the 9th St. Italian Market, is readily accessible via SEPTA.

The music director for this TLM will be Nicholas Beck who is Music Director at Mater Ecclesiae in Berlin, NJ. Robert Ridgell will be the organist.
Father Gerald Carey, the Pastor of St. Paul Parish, will celebrate the Mass. The proper of the Mass will be sung in Gregorian chant. The Mass setting will be the familiar Missa de Angelis sung by the choir and the congregation.

Special polyphonic motets will be sung at the Offertory and at Holy Communion.

Our Sovereign Pontiff Pope Benedict XVI has made available a Plenary Indulgence for those who celebrate this Jubilee Year of St. Paul by participation in such a solemn celebration in connection with the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul.

    I was so happy to see this posted here on your blog Father Z but, having been
    at church all morning, I hadn’t heard the news about Tiller until I clicked on
    your site. I hope this joyful news doesn’t get lost in all the debate.

    For those who may not know, this will be the second TLM at St Paul’s in about
    six months, the first having taken place in January. Father Carey is a very
    devout priest who has brought a renewed sense of reverence and devotion to
    the Eucharist since his arrival last year. Perhaps with enough support, the
    TLM will become the norm, rather than the exception at St Paul’s and other
    surrounding parishes. I hope everyone who is able will attend.

    Congrats to Fr.Carey! I was at the mass in January, and it was extremely beautiful. Anyone in the area really should go.
