Like the Latin Mass Community of Melbourne, Austrailia, the Brothers of the Little Oratory in San Diego will be celebrating their eleventh consecutive
Gregorian Tenebrae (EF) at 7:00pm on the evening of Spy Wednesday, 20 April, 2011, in St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, Polk and Park Ave.'s in University Heights, San DIego, CA, according to a well established, sensible, and much more evangelistically convenient (read "Family Friendly") local custom. Please come if you are in the area. Fr. Harry Neely O.S.A. acts as Hebdomadary. You really don't want to miss this.

Correction to my previous post, the correct telephone number is 719-495-3933 for the Servants - mea culpa.
