RORATE CÆLI: Event: First TLM in St. Patrick's Cathedral (NYC) since the 1990's



Wow, I wish I still lived in NYC! I miss these wonderful events in the City of my birth!



The Traditional Catholicism blog announced
a few days ago that a Solemn Mass (1962 Missal) will be celebrated in
St. Patrick's Cathedral on November 14, the first since Summorum
Pontificum took effect and the first in nearly 20 years:





The (traditional) Councils of the Knights
of Columbus – the Regina Coeli Council that meets at Holy Innocents
& the Agnus Dei Council – received a generous permission from
Cardinal Dolan to have a pilgrimage and a (traditional) Mass at St.
Patrick’s Cathedral before the end of the Year of Mercy.


This will be the first time since Summorum Pontificum that a traditional Mass will be publicly celebrated at the Cathedral of the Archdiocese of New York!









On May 12, 1996, Alfons Cardinal Stickler celebrated a magnificent Solemn Pontifical Mass in
St. Patrick's, the first TLM to be said there since the liturgical
reforms. That Mass attracted between 4,000 and 5,000 faithful. In 1997 a
Solemn Mass was celebrated by Fr. John Perricone, and unfortunately
that proved to be the last for nearly two decades...
