FINAL DAY for 2017 tax-deductible charitable donations – help a GREAT cause!

Sometimes people want to make donations, but they are not sure about how.  Is the organization doing something good?  The end of the year is upon us.  This is it for 2017 donations.

Here’s a pitch for the Tridentine Mass Society of the Diocese of Madison.  I am president of the TMSM.  It is a 501(c)(3) organization, so your donations are tax deductible.

We are doing our best, with the support of the bishop (the Extraordinary Ordinary) to elevate all liturgical boats by promoting the generous implementation of Summorum Pontificum.  We help priests and sponsor Masses in the Extraordinary Form.  We have Pontifical Masses here with the bishop.

In the last few years, we have made sets of vestments for the worthy celebration of Mass, including a fantastic set for the diocese, with the coat of arms of the diocese and of the bishop.

Please help us.

The next three projects:

I’ve asked for an estimate for

  • folded chasubles to match our violet pontifical set
  • dalmatic, tunic, humeral veil and antependium to make our simple rose set, solemn
  • new pontifical set in black, with the addition of folded chasubles

Again, we need your help to make this happen.

There are three ways to give:

  1. Continue To Give HERE
  2. PayPal HERE
  3. Check by snail mail (no fees!)Tridentine Mass Society of Madison

Make out big checks and send them right away!


BTW… I’ve been searching – in vain – for a black fabric that I really like. However, I am considering this option, which Gammarelli has in stock.

In the background you can see the cut up fabric for our first big project, the gold pontifical set, a glimpse of which is in the photo at the top.


I’ve been doing some research and calculations.

Regarding that photo of the black chasuble above, given the expense of the fabric, a Pontifical set would probably cost some $17K. That’s why I continue to research fabrics. Also, I saw something at Watts in London that I really like. I think they are also quite expensive.
