We of the Tridentine Mass Society of the Diocese of Madison have posted some splendid photos of the 1st Solemn Mass of the new Fr. Peter Lee, ordained by the Extraordinary Ordinary, Bp. Robert C. Morlino for the aforementioned diocese.
The Mass was celebrated coram Episcopo who was present in cappa magna.
Here are a few of the pics. You can see more HERE.
Veni Creator Spiritus
The bishop says the Prayers at the Foot of the Altar together with the priest.
To the throne. He will read also the antiphons as they come along, bless incense and the water cruet at the Offertory.
The subdeacon asks the bishop to bless the water for the chalice.
The bishop kneels before the altar during the Canon.

We are doing good things here.
For example, on Friday, Sts. Peter and Paul, Fr. Lee was ordained with two other men (one of whom also celebrated a 1st TLM). For the ordination the diocese used the TMSM’s red vestments for Pontifical Masses. Alas, I have only a couple photos from someone’s phone right now.
The Society had three additional chasubles made to match the set precisely for the sake of ordinations. Next year we will have 5 men ordained, and we have already had five white chasubles made that match our beautiful white Pontifical set, which are embroidered with the coat of arms of the diocese.
In the next week we have a solemn set in green coming, with bronze trim. Also in the planning stage is a new set in black. I am having damask woven and am in the design phase. In the next calendar year, blue will come and, hopefully, rose for Pontifical Masses. We will also continue to build additional Solemn Mass sets so that we don’t wear vestments from the Pontifical sets unevenly.
I always keep in mind that, one day Madison will have a real cathedral church once again. Cathedrals need vestments for glorious sacred worship. We are serving the local Church even as we try to set an example for other motivate groups in other places. I even lent our green set for the 1st Mass of a young SSPX priest some time ago.
The diocese and parish graciously welcomed him to say his 1st Mass at his home parish where he grew up. We also once lent out our gold set for the consecration of a church.
This takes a great deal of planning and money. Please help us?
