Traditional Mass Returns to Fatima

The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius (Archdiocese of Chicago) are leading a pilgrimage in September, 2010 to Fatima, Portugal to help achieve the restoration off the Traditional Latin Mass to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima.

Included in this pilgrimage to the Fatima apparition sites will be a liturgical conference in Fatima providing clergy and laity with lectures on the history, spirituality, and mystical theology of the Classical Roman Rite.

On September 10 the Canons will celebrate a Solemn High Latin Mass (1962 Missale Romanum) at the High Altar of Fatima’s Basilica. This will be the first time in some 45 years that the High Altar has been used to celebrate the Traditional Mass.
