Important Announcement

Dear readers:

The liturgical reform of the reform is moving apace, slowly but steady, in the Catholic Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee. Yours truly has just been authorized to release this academic year’s schedule of Traditional Latin Masses. They will each be celebrated at 2:00 pm at Tallahassee’s Cathedral of St Thomas More.

Sunday, October 4, 2009 – Low Mass (with Hymns)
Sunday, January 10, 2010 – High Mass
Sunday, April 18, 2010 – High Mass

As you can see, the Masses are celebrated on a quarterly basis (there was one additional [Low Mass] celebrated on June 28). This is far from ideal, but the faithful are building up to a weekly High Mass.

But this ideal will not come to be unless there is consistent, significant attendance at these Masses (which there has been so far, thanks be to God), and if the faithful are not generous in their tithes when the collection plate comes around.

Rest assured: whatever is collected at these Masses goes toward the celebration of the traditional liturgy. The Mass on October 4 will be celebrated with a brand new set of gorgeous vestments, purchased from the funds collected on June 28.

So please be generous with both your time and money, and patronize these liturgies! Vote with your feet!

I encourage non-Catholics to attend as well. The traditional Catholic liturgy, with all its artistic treasures, is one of the historic bedrocks of Western Civilization, and so the common patrimony of all mankind. Your presence would be most welcomed, and greatly appreciated.

There will probably be refreshments served after the Mass. Hope to see you all there. Reminders will be posted as we draw nearer to these dates.
