Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Upcoming Events

October 28th, 2010, Promulgated by Gen

Please remember the following upcoming events in the Rochester area:

October 31st, 1:30 PM – High Mass at St. Stanislaus. Motets by Palestrina, Croce, and Tye round out a full musical repertoire including Cannicciari’s Missa Phrygia, Victoria’s Credo from his Missa O Magnum Mysterium, and a sung prelude by Farnaby. The Mass propers will be taken from the Mass of the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King. The Solemnity of Christ the King falls in late November in the Ordinary Form calendar, but following the rubrics to the Missal of 1962, the observance is marked on this weekend instead.

November 2nd, 7:00 PM – Rosary for Priestly Vocations and Solemn Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament at St. Thomas the Apostle Church. The service will include the beautiful hymn “O God Beyond All Praising,”O Salutaris Hostia, Salve Regina (Gregorian), Tantum Ergo (Gregorian), Adoremus in Aeternum (Gregorian), and the majestic chanted Te Deum. The event is being sponsored by the Knights of Columbus Council out of St. Anne Church, and is going to be the last major liturgical function at St. Thomas, at least for the foreseeable future. St. Thomas was built with Gregorian Chant in mind, so a service of this magnitude and beauty will undoubtedly be an impressive and unforgettable event.

So be sure to make yourself available for these two events. They are bound to be unparalleled in their beauty and devotion.

    And it’s being led by one of the best priests you’ll find in this diocese… Fr. Bonsignore. He truly is a very holy man.

    The Knights of Columbus of Council 11411 (Saint Damien of Molokai Council), which is sponsoring the Rosary, holds its meetings at St. Anne on Mt. Hope Avenue but is not officially or legally affiliated with the parish. The Council, for example, has to pay for rental of rooms just like any other outside group. The Council has always been headquarted at St. Anne and the parish has always been most accomodating to it. While most of the members of the Council are also members of St. Anne -and now Our Lady of Lourdes- a significant number belong to other parishes. I think all K of C councils are independent even if they carry the name of the parish where they meet.

    Palestrina? And Victoria’s Missa O Magnum Mysterium? Now I’m -really- excited.

    God bless Father Bonsignore.
