Holy Innocents is 128 West 37th Street (between Broadway and 7th). It is close to Penn Station and several subway stops.
The vigil is sponsored by the traditional Knights of the Regina Coeli and Agnus Dei Councils of the Knights of Columbus. It is great that there are Councils of the Knights of Columbus which are focused on the traditional Roman Rite.
The 1st Friday vigil begins at 6 p.m. with a Solemn Votive Mass of the Sacred Heart according to the 1962 Missale Romanum, followed by Stations of the Cross, Exposition and Solemn Vespers and Compline coram Sanctissimo.
Throughout the night, they will also pray a full scriptural rosary, recite or sing all six Litanies approved for public use by the Church and sing the Divine Mercy Chaplet (at 3 a.m.). The vigil concludes with a procession of the Blessed Sacrament and Mass at 5 a.m. in the Usus Antiquior for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception.
If you are in or near New York City, you have a great spiritual opportunity on 1st Fridays.
For those in the area who prefer to fulfill their obligation to attend Mass for the Immaculate Conception a little later in the day on Saturday, there will also be a Solemn Mass at Holy Innocents at 1 p.m.
Beautiful church. Beautiful devotions. Beautiful Masses. Great location.
Over the years it has been great to see what use of the traditional forms has done to bring more people and spiritual benefits to this centrally located parish. If only more pastors of souls would be open to what the Extraordinary Form could bring to their communities.
