Nashville, Tennessee…..where I’m moving for a year for fellowship training in 2017.
The path goes over the Carmelites in Wyoming, the diocese of Lincoln, and the Benedictines of Atchison among other favorable locations for a Mass.
I’m all for the Carmelites in Wyoming, or Wyoming Catholic College. But my first recommendation would be to have the jamboree in Knoxville, Tennessee, in the presence of the gentlemanly commenter Henry Edwards.
Father, Your planet will not obscure your yellow sun and cast a shadow on your planet. Your moon will block the light from your sun casting a shadow on your planet.
my vote: nashville
Looks like the path will go directly over Portland, Oregon where the great Archbishop Sample is the ordinary and a practitioner of the TLM/EF. Perhaps he will be available to celebrate a Solemn Pontifical Mass at the Throne!
I vote wild-wonderful-Wyoming for this one.
Extreme north Georgia! It is my plan and my hope to be there. Woohoo!
But if there were a gathering in the area, I’d try to go to that.
You can’t beat Charleston SC. Come be the first to see it!
The path goes right over Prince of Peace and St. Mary’s in Greenville, SC. Both would be excellent choices.
“The Rome of the West” – St. Louis, Missouri – seems to lie in the path. It has my vote.
Hopkinsville, KY is supposed to be THE place to view the eclipse in its fullest glory.
Near by in Auburn, KY is the HQ of the Fathers of Mercy, real hammers of Truth. Maybe something could be done there.
The Fathers of Mercy are located just outside of Russellville, KY on the linked map. They would be well within the band of totality, and the eclipse’s time shouldn’t be too far off the max from that of Hopkinsville!
August will almost certainly find me overseas as usual. Happy to send some Birra Nursia.
Holy Ghost Catholic Church in Knoxville is my vote.
Father, you are welcome to come to Paducah, Kentucky for the eclipse. We are supposed to see a full eclipse here (provided that clouds don’t get in the way, of course). Also, the eclipse duration will be near the maximum — though there are nearby locations where it is supposed to last just a bit longer. You would be welcome to stay with me and my family, if you don’t mind kids who can be rather wild and loud at times. We have no Latin Mass anywhere near here (neither OF in Latin nor EF), so it would be a great experience to have you celebrate Mass at one of the local parishes.
Following up on some of the previous comments, I also agree with the recommendation to contact the Fathers of Mercy. Hopkinsville, Kentucky is supposed to be one of the very best places to see the eclipse, and they are not too far from Hopkinsville. Their web site: http://fathersofmercy.com/
And on the feast of St Pius X! (novus ordo)
I vote for Perryville, MO which is right on the center line of the eclipse path, and is home to the National Shrine of the Miraculous Medal. And which is within a day’s’ drive of my house!
It will be my 62nd birthday and most of the family will be at Hilton Head (we tried for Myrtle Beach, but could not get the rooms) and we’ll drive up into the zone to see the total eclipse. I plan on taking 2 hrs to get there. Longer???
Ah, but look at 4/8/24! I plan on being in Potsdam, NY for that one!
In central SC, less than a mile from the optimum center line !
New telescope, recording the event, praying for clear skies!
How about a Spring Potluck Picnic/TLM Sunday? Dyersville, Iowa has the Basilica of St. Francis Xavier, and some awesome parks. Field of Dreams just up the block. Post Easter, maybe end of April? What do you say Father Z., your adoring crowds would love to hang out with you on a sunny spring Sunday! TLM and potluck picnic, now THAT would be awesome!
I hope to be in or near Gatlinburg TN.
They are slowly rebuilding.
