Rorate Caeli

Introibo ad altare Dei!

Thanks to the Holy Father, now every priest of the Latin Rite can offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass according to the Missal of 1962. Many priests desire to celebrate the venerable and ancient liturgy of the Church, but this supposes that they know the rubrics of the Mass and its spirit. The Fraternity of Saint Peter would like to help them in this task. For that, we offer another training workshop in our Seminary of Denton, Nebraska. Please, spread the word!

Communiqué of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter

The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter in collaboration with Una Voce America will be offering another training workshop for priests interested in learning how to celebrate the “extraordinary form” of the Roman Rite. The workshop will take place the first week of September 2007 from the 3rd (Monday) through 7th (Friday) hosted by Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Lincoln, Nebraska. All the fundamentals involved in learning the Traditional Latin Mass will be covered. Priests will receive a complete explanation with hands-on practice of the rubrics of the 1962 Missale Romanum as well as an introduction to Latin, traditional liturgical principles, and Gregorian Chant. A comprehensive materials packet will also be provided.The course will follow the same method used successfully in the workshops conducted this past June when the Fraternity trained diocesan and religious priests in the Older Use during three different sessions.Further workshops are being planned for the late fall.

Interested priests should contact Fr. Calvin Goodwin,FSSP at 402-797-7700.

    Let us pray that many priests who haven't had the opportunity in the past, respond to this generous offer by the Fraternity. The Lord willing, this will bear much good fruit for the Church in America. I hope the offer can be extended to the Fraternity's seminary in Wigratzbad as well if it has not already.

    When will the Fraternity offer training for the Deacons who desire to assist the priests in this wonderful gift?

    I went to this workshop last year and it was most excellent. I encourage all my brother priests to particapate, even if you only have a remote interest in the extaordinary form. The fellowship with my fellow priests, the prayer, the learning ... is a great benefit and blessing. You will be enriched.
