I am sure you recall with fondness how His Excellency Most Rev. Edward Slattery, Bishp of Tulsa, stepped up to the plate in April as celebrant for the Pontifical Mass in the Extraordinary Form at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC. His sermon was spectacular.
More news about something Bp. Slattery has done.
From a reader:
I thought you might be interested to know that the Parish of St. Peter in Tulsa, OK (the diocese’s FSSP apostolate), has been graciously given permission by His Excellency Bishop Edward J. Slattery to sing a Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary Form to celebrate the ordination of Fr. Rhone Lillard to the priesthood. It will be Sunday, June 20th, at 10 AM at Holy Family Cathedral in Tulsa.
The Bishop has decided that this Mass should replace the normal 10 AM Sunday ordinary form Mass, which is a significant move on the Bishop’s part. Furthermore, to my knowledge, it is the first time a regularly scheduled Sunday Mass has been in the EF at Holy Family since 1970. We are hoping to have a large turn-out from the diocese and surrounding areas.
The choirs and organist of St. Peter’s Parish will be providing the music.
Official WDTPRS kudos to Bishop Slattery!
Congratulations to the newly ordained Fr. Lillard!
