It is time again for the annual Solemn TLM sponsored by Mater Ecclesiae in Berlin, NJ where my friend Fr. Robert Pasley is pastor.
This year the Mass will be offered at St. Peter’s in Merchantville, NJ rather than the Cathedral in Camden, where work is going on to restore the organ.
I have happily attended this Mass twice now. I wish I could be there again this year.
I spoke with Fr. Pasley by phone this morning. The preparations are going well. Fr. Pasley mentioned that the church at Merchantville is much larger than the Cathedral.
Here is the music program:
