YOUR NEW TLM announcements

From time to time it seems like this blog is the cyber version of a campus telephone pole.  People want me to post their announcements.

I like good "brick by brick" news, and when time and other things permit I will happily help out.

But since this blog is not, in fact, the campus telephone pole, here is an entry where you can do that.

What are your NEW TLM announcements?

    Not an announcement, but a comment about announcements . . .

    Whenever a new traditional Latin Mass is announced, I feel much like I did when watching Return of the King in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, when one signal fire after another was lit on the mountain tops, summoning help for the battle against Mordor. [One of the best moments in those movies (the music) and a great image.] Just absolutely thrilled and hopeful.

    Deo gratias!

  2. Rellis says:

    In addition to an 11AM Missa Cantata every Sunday, there is now a 7:30AM Sunday Low Mass at Holy Name Church in Providence. Deo gratias. I won’t invoke S.P.’s single-Mass limitation if you won’t.

  3. Girgadis says:

    Great idea, Father, and it frees you from one more task.

    A Solemn High Traditional Latin Mass will be offered at the Carmelite Monastery located at 66th Ave. and Old York Road (near Broad Street) Philadelphia on Thursday, July 16th , the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, at 7:30 PM. The solemn Missa Cantata will be celebrated by Father Kevin McGoldrick. The Holy Rosary will be said at 6:45PM followed by the sung litany of Our Lady of Loretto in Latin at 7PM, organ music at 7:15PM and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at 7:30PM. Parking is available on 66th Street adjacent to the Monastery.

  4. Michael Kramer says:

    The Cathedral in Springfield Missouri now offers a High Mass every Sunday at 3 PM and all Holydays (either at 12:15 or 7 PM…call Cathedral Office) and will retain its daily Mass schedule for the Extraordinary Form: Tuesday-Friday 12:15 PM in the Chapel.

  5. Servant of the Liturgy says:

    St Ambrose, Old Bridge, Diocese of Metuchen, New Jersey. Father Bob Gorman celebrates Mass according to the Missal of Blessed Pope John XXIII Saturdays at 9:30 AM.

  6. paratrooper says:

    Fr. Z – sorry to clutter up the combox since I really don’t have an announcement… but does anyone in Ohio have any TLM news out of the Greater Cleveland area?

    I’m already aware of the handful of TLMs that have been regularly available there during the past few years (St. Stephens, Immaculate Conception, Akron St. Mary’s), but my job has kept me away from home for a few years and was hoping that some good news might greet me when I finally return to that terrestrial paradise we call Northeast Ohio.


  7. mollie garcia says:

    in jacksonville, fl we now have a second tlm at st. joseph’s historic church (the other parish is immaculate conception where the tlm has been said since the mid-late 80’s). this Mass is held every 1st and 3rd sunday, for now (hopefully weekly soon!), and is said by fr. darius sleszynski. thanks be first to God; then, thanks to fr. dan cody for his courage in being the only current pastor “brave” enough to allow this; even more thanks to alan rees who practically single handedly has made this happen.

  8. Matt H. says:

    As reported a few weeks ago on Rorate Caeli, Mater Dolorosa Church in South San Francisco now offers TLM (a Missa Cantata, unless I am mistaken) on the First Sunday of each month at 6:30 PM.

  9. Mike says:

    Signs are good we may have a TLM in the Waterloo, Iowa area with two holy priests of the archdiocese looking at sharing responsibility. And at a gorgeous old church at that still with its high altar intact. Knock on wood, something will be in place by Labor Day. Anyone interested in helping out, reach me at michael_hohenbrink(at)

  10. Sid Cundiff says:

    New TLM/MEF in Wilmington, North Carolina at St. Mary, 220 South Fifth Street (mailing address: 412 Ann Street)28401. It will be offered the last Sunday of each Month, at 7pm, beginning 30 August 2009. Phone (910) 762-5491 thestmaryparish[dot]org . The priest will be Fr. Paul Parkerson or the Diocese of Raleigh, pastor at Sacred Heart Church, Dunn NC. Vide dioceseofraleigh[dot]org/news/view.aspx?id=594

  11. Stu says:

    Progress on the new Saint Benedict’s chapel in Chesapeake, Va. Quite literally, “brick by brick”.

  12. Helm Hammerhand says:

    A comment about the first comment: I like to think Tolkien got the idea for the fire signals from the bible. Judges 6:1-2, “The Israelites offended the Lord, who therefore delivered them into the power of Midian for seven years, so that Midian held Israel subject. For fear of Midian the Israelites established the fire signals on the mountains, the caves for refuge, and the strongholds.” Fire signals and Helm’s Deep!

  13. Fr. Michael Darcy says:

    Kent & Sussex County, Delaware

    New TLM: 1st Sunday of each month, Low Mass, 3.p.m., Holy Redeemer Church, Delmar, Delaware, Chestnut Street.

    Continuing TLM: 3rd Sunday; Missa Cantata, 3 p.m., Holy Cross, 631 S. State St. Dover, DE

  15. Salvatore Giuseppe says:

    I came in here to post the second latin mass in the Diocese of St. Augustine, but was beat to the punch. The 15 minute drive and 11 am-ish(I need to find this out for tomorrow :P) start time is much more convenient than the 35+ minute drive to the 8 AM at Immaculate Conception.

  16. Glaswegian says:

    Glasgow, Scotland
    – Every Saturday in July, 12noon at Sacred Heart, Bridgeton. One of the younger priests of the diocese has been learning to say the Traditional Mass (sometimes 11am, call the church to confirm This also means that the regular Sunday Mass, at 10.15am in the same church, continues throughout July (when usually there is a break.

  17. Stephen says:

    The Latin Mass in Carmel, IN at 3pm in the day chapel of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton is to be a sung Mass every other week from now until roughly Christmas at which point, God willing, it will be sung Mass every week.

  18. T. O' Donnell says:

    LONDON, United Kingdom.: A schola (Latin Mass choir) singing principally at Masses in east London needs singers. Requirements: You need to be male, Catholic, able to read Latin and carry a tune. Call 0845 2269067 and leave a message if interested.

  19. Maynardus says:

    Very unexpectedly I was contacted about six weeks ago by a young priest at a parish about five miles from my home who wanted to start offering the T.L.M. publicly. Although he had the support of his pastor there was some opposition in the parish plus a very busy Mass schedule so I suggested he start with some feast day Masses to gauge the interest and let people “ease into” it. This was in line with his thinking and so it proceeded. The first Mass was on the Feast of the Sacred Heart and there were 100 in attendance, the second was for the Visitation last Thursday and despite inclement weather and the beginning of a long weekend there were over 50. It has been very well received by a solid (stable?) group of parishioners and there were lots of people from surrounding towns as well. If there is good attendance at the next two Masses (Transfiguraton, and a Sung Mass for St. John Vianney) he will attempt to introduce a Sunday Mass at least once a month. Brick-by-brick…

  20. dcs says:

    A Solemn High Traditional Latin Mass will be offered at the Carmelite Monastery located at 66th Ave. and Old York Road (near Broad Street) Philadelphia on Thursday, July 16th , the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, at 7:30 PM. The solemn Missa Cantata will be celebrated by Father Kevin McGoldrick. The Holy Rosary will be said at 6:45PM followed by the sung litany of Our Lady of Loretto in Latin at 7PM, organ music at 7:15PM and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at 7:30PM. Parking is available on 66th Street adjacent to the Monastery.

    I spoke to Fr. McGoldrick recently and he indicated that it would be a Solemn Mass, not a Missa Cantata.

  21. Girgadis says:

    See the monastery’s website. I’ve also seen this information in several parish
    bulletins. I will go regardless, God willing.

  22. P says:

    Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, 259 Oliver Street, Newark, New Jersey, will hold a Solemn High Traditional Latin Mass in honor of its patroness, on the titular feast of the parish, July 16 at 12 noon. The Mass will be immediately followed by a procession with the statue of Our Lady through the parish accompanied by a full symphonic Italian feast band and fireworks.

  23. Joe says:

    For those of you who do not know, the first Sunday of every month-including tomorrow- Mass in the Extraordinary Form is offered in St. Joseph’s Cathedral in Wheeling W Va. Since that’s only one per month, I guess you can say it’s new- only about ten Masses have been said in the Extraordinary Form so far. But the priest who says it says the OF for television in the morning and is the assistant pastor for the cathedral (whatever that position is called). So he is a very active and competent priest. I believe these Masses will go on for a long while. I think I remember someone saying that the priest said they would like to have it more often.

  24. Scott says:

    St John Bosco Latin Mass Community in Carmel,Indiana has a Mass schedule posted on the local Una Voce chapter website:

  25. Laura Lowder says:

    A Latin Mass will be offered in the Sandhills of NC next Monday, per the present schedule. It will be the first offered here – but if all goes well it will by no means be the last. As details for future Celebrations are ironed out, I’ll post more information; for now I simply want friends to know another brick is being laid in the Diocese of Raleigh.

  26. dcs says:

    See the monastery’s website. I’ve also seen this information in several parish bulletins.

    Girgadis, I have seen the same information and I too will be going regardless. However, when I spoke to Fr. McGoldrick I asked him who the deacon and subdeacon would be – so there is no confusion. By the way, a Solemn Mass is also sung, so if anything it will be more solemn than a Missa Cantata.

  27. joebe says:

    Not a new Mass, but a schedule change. The weekly 1:00 p.m. Sunday Latin Mass at St. Odilo in Berwyn, Illinois, will be moving to the more desirable time of 9:30 a.m.

  28. Ken says:

    Does the following qualify as a TLM announcement?

    There is a young priest in the Dallas Diocese who wished to offer the TLM (and Ordinary Form in Latin). His pastor has prevented the priest from offering either form of Mass (in Latin) and the Chancery isn’t keen to support the priest.

    But the priest believes that he will likely offer the TLM (and Novus Ordo in Latin) when he someday is given a parish to pastor.

    Let’s pray for the priest. Let’s also pray that his elevation to pastor arrives quickly. When that day arrives, the TLM would for the first time in about 40 become a regular part of Sunday worship at a Dallas parish.

  29. Girgadis says:

    You are certainly privileged to be personally acquainted with such a wonderful
    priest. Thanks for the clarification!
