I had some great news yesterday about a Solemn Mass in traditional Roman Rite which will be celebrated on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, 14 September, in the Bronx, NY.
Announcement: “There will be a celebration of Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary Form on Wednesday, September 14th, 2016, at 7.30 PM at the Church of the Holy Rosary, 1510 Adee Avenue, Bronx, New York 10469 (rectory address), for the Feast of the Exaltation of the True Cross.
On the previous Wednesday, September 7th, 7:30 PM, the Celebrant of the Mass, Fr Jean Paul Soler, of St Clement’s, Staten Island, will present a catechetical lecture on the Extraordinary Form of the Mass at 7 PM at Holy Rosary. Our parish grammar school and high school students are especially encouraged to attend. Music for the Mass will be by Byrd, Tallis, and Morales.”
I spoke with the parish priest at Holy Rosary. This is the first time they are having Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form. Also, they have really young clergy carrying out the sacred rites! This is excellent news. It is also a fitting way to observe the 9th anniversary of Summorum Pontificum going into effect.
The New Evangelization continues!
I hope that everyone in the region will mark this on calendars, tell friends, and make plans to attend. Strong support for Masses such as these is of great importance right now.
