Reader R.W. sends us the following event notice:
This Sunday, January 19, 2014, 9:30 a.m. at Saint Odilo, Berwyn, Illinois, 40 major seminarians from Mundelein Seminary (Archdiocese of Chicago), will attend a Solemn High Latin Mass.The Schola Cantorum of St. Odilo will render the music of Palestrina, including his Missa Æterna Christi Munera and Alma Redemptoris Mater.Saint Odilo Parish, the National Shrine for the Poor Souls, offers the Traditional Latin Mass each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. The parish is located in Chicago's nearby city of Berwyn, just west of downtown Chicago. The Schola sings for each of these Masses, singing largely music from the late Renaissance, but also music from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods. St. Odilo serves people not only from Berwyn, Cicero, Chicago, but many other nearby towns in western suburban Chicago. Each week hundreds of both young and old, families, and groups, visit the National Shrine to witness the beauty of the Traditional Latin Mass. The celebration of this Mass in Berwyn was started by pastor, Father Anthony Brankin.
