Rorate Caeli

A few moments of your time please?

It’s been awhile since I last asked everyone to do some housekeeping at WikkiMissa and I thought that maybe the anniversary of the release of Summorum Pontificum would be an ideal day to remind everyone to update the information on Masses in their area.

For those who are not already familiar with it, WikkiMissa is a brilliant French-based, user editable website administered by a certain Emmanuel which comprises what is undoubtedly the most comprehensive directory of traditional Masses worldwide. It is usable in six languages (including Latin) and is an indispensable tool for travelers who need to know where they can assist at Mass in various destinations.

In the two years since Summorum Pontificum appeared, there have been new Mass sites appearing in the news on a regular basis. It seems as though Masses are popping up at a faster rate than even tradition-oriented media can keep up with. I would like to make an appeal to readers at this time to familiarize themselves with Wikkimissa and to make any updates relevant to what is happening in their respective regions. Please bookmark the site and look in on it from time to time to make sure the information remains current. You will certainly also want to make the site available to those desiring to assist at a traditional Mass but may not know where to find one. There are undoubtedly scores of tradition minded people out there who would be happy to join us at Mass every Sunday if only they were aware that there was one within traveling distance from their homes. This is a low-burden opportunity to bring as many people to our Masses as possible. Let us hasten to avail ourselves of it.


  1. Thank you for your reminder.
    I have just updated the information for Turin; the restoration works in the "Chiesa della Misercordia" have just finished and we're back home.

  2. For those who don't know French...To edit a page one would click "Éditer cette page" (edit this page), type in the changes, click "Aperçu" (preview), enter the verification code and click "Sauver" (save).

    Please notice a stunning news at the end of the page for Japan on WikiMissa: in the centre of Tokyo, THE TRADITIONAL MASS IS SAID EVERY DAY, in the private chapel of a retired priest. You may even see a photo of the Sunday Mass a few weeks ago here:

  4. For the USA there is also a great site with the schedule of Tridentine Masses throughout the country.

  5. Does anybody know if he's interested in SSPX Mass times?

  6. For those who don't know French...To edit a page one would click "Éditer cette page"...

    --There's an easier way: Just click the Amercan flag at the top of the page and everything will appear in English.

  7. Does anybody know if he's interested in SSPX Mass times?


  8. I attempt to keep current the Wikkimissa site with reference to North Carolina with respect to those MEFs under the jurisdiction of the bishops of NC. I have permission from those priests under these jurisdictions to so edit, and I confirm all reports with these priests. I welcome and need information on new MEFs in NC.

    I have not received to date the FSSPX's permission to edit their entries at the NC page.

    This, unlike other such websites, is a site which can be edited by anyone reading, for better or worse. I urge those so editing to have confirmed and verified information from clergy and have the permission of such clergy.

    That said, I urge also that everyone consult this website, and that this website be kept current.

  9. I updated the Schedule for New York City to include the Wednesday and Holy Day Masses at Holy Innocents

  10. Don't forget the Mater Dei Latin Mass list!
