NYC, Manhattan Solemn TLM news for Christ the King, All Saints, All Souls

Are you in or near New York City?
There will be a Solemn Mass with the 1962 Missale Romanum at Holy Innocents in Manhattan (near 37th and Broadway) for the Feast of All Saints Monday, 1 November at 6 PM, and for 2 November All Souls Day at 6PM.  On the Feast of All Saints, the choir will  sing Morales Missa Caça and on All Souls Day, Morales Missa pro defunctis.    The choir’s got game, btw.  The undersigned will be celebrant.
Mystic MonkAlso,  on Sunday 31 October, the Feast of Christ the King in the older, traditional calendar, there will be a Solemn Mass at 10 am, also at Holy Innocents with music by Morales, the Missa sobre las voces. (This choir must really like Morales!)  After the Sunday Mass, in the humble hall below the church, there will be a solemn coffee and doughnuts Convivium featuring MYSTIC MONK COFFEE!  I am told there will be a few bags of Mystic Monk given away and some for purchase.
Immediately after Christ the King Mass on Sunday, there will be the recitation of the Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart.  Bl. Pope Pius XI established the Feast of Christ the King in 1925 and mandated that this Act of Consecration be recited publicly each year on this great Feast.
Here is the text:
Most Sweet Jesus, Redeemer of the human race, look down upon us humbly prostrate before thy altar.  We are Thine, and Thine we wish to be; but to be more surely united to Thee, behold each one of us freely consecrates himself today to Thy Most Sacred Heart. Many indeed have never known Thee; Many too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee.  Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy Sacred Heart.
Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful children who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee; Grant that they may quickly return to their Father’s house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger.
Be Thou King of those who are deceived by the erroneous opinions of whom discord keeps aloof, and call them back to the harbor of truth and unity of faith, so that soon there may be but one flock and one shepherd.
Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm; give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry; praise to the divine Heart that wrought our salvation; To it be glory and honor forever.  R. Amen.
