Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Laetare Sunday – Tridentine High Mass

March 10th, 2010, Promulgated by Choir

Again this Sunday, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be celebrated in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite at beautiful Saint Stanislaus Church. Mass is at 1:30 and the church is on the corner of Hudson Avenue and Norton Street.

Everyone is very welcomed to attend. That includes the whole family: Moms, Dads, kids, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, half-brothers and half-sisters (no matter how many times removed), etc.

Only Catholics, who are spiritually prepared, may receive Holy Communion. Holy Communion is received only on the tongue and kneeling, unless you can’t kneel. No need to say “Amen”.

We have handicapped elevator in the rear of the church, security guards, separate bathroom access, and a most excellent selection of books at the book table.

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, leave them in the combox and I will respond asap.

Oremus pro invicem!

PS. Turn your clocks ahead one hour early this Sunday morning.

    Will I see you there?

  2. Matt says:

    I'm excited!

  3. Matt – Have you been to the Mass before, Matt? Bring family and friends.

    Despite what liberals might say, we are an extremely friendly group of people. As weird as it seems, we just don't like talking in Church. I know that sounds wacky, but we'd actually, honestly rather pray in Church and talk outside of Church. I know, a weird concept. But that's us.

  4. Matt says:

    Oh yeah, I've been a number of times…we have some mutual friends, Choir 😛 I just haven't been able to make it to the past 2 high Masses since I was out of state on one occasion, and on retreat the other…I haven't been since some time in December, I'm afraid (Terrible, I know) I keep not being able to go when I'm in other dioceses either 🙁

    What a scary group!!

  6. gretchen says:

    Hooray! I think we should be able to make it! For future reference, where does one find the schedule for the Tridentine High Masses?

  7. Matt: I was out of the state a few times too, but that was the "state of grace".

    Gretchen: Let me get together a list of Masses coming up. We have both High Masses (full ritual) and Missa Cantatas (not the full ritual) coming up.

    Thanks for asking.

  8. Sister Emily says:

    I wish some Sunday we could have coffee hour after high Mass so cleansing fire bloggers could say hello to one another and also have an opportunity to meet others from the Latin Mass. (big sentance) I know it may be difficult for those with families and other commitments but I would like it.

  9. Many people go out after Mass, especially the guys at the book table and sometimes the counters go too. It's hard to get the space for a coffee hour at the church.

  10. Tmac says:

    Would you guys mind if I showed up to one of these Masses sometime? I'm not kidding. I would need help with the Latin thing! 🙂

  11. Heck, no, Tmac. You are most welcome to show up and stay too…hahaha!! Seriously, please do come. There are red Latin-English missals + the bulletin has all the readings in English. I wouldn't try to follow along in the missal the first time. It can be confusing if you've never done it (it is actually very easy). I can show you after Mass.

    Just take it in and pray. Try and sit up front for a better view and better sound.

    Whatever help I can provide with the Latin, I would consider it an honor.

    Let me know.

    I was able to attend this afternoon.

    A very reverent priest, a great homily, an excellent choir, impeccably trained servers and a congregation focused on worshiping God, not celebrating themselves. Even the kids were well-behaved.

    What a holy experience!

    I need to attend more often.

  13. Thanks, Mike. I just saw your comments today. I passed them along to our new servers.
    Come again!
