The curate of St. Mary Church, Norwalk, Fr. Richard Cipolla, will also speak. There will be Solemn Vespers on Friday evening and Solemn Mass the next morning, with chant and classical polyphony sung by the Schola Cantorum of St. Mary Church. Lunch will be served on Saturday.

3. Cardinal Burke celebrates Pontifical High Mass in Amsterdam on November 6:

By special invitation of His Reverend Excellency Mgr. Punt, Bishop of Haarlem-Amsterdam, His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke will celebrate the Pontifical High Mass in St. Agnes Church in Amsterdam on coming November 6th.

We are most pleased and thankful to His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke that, despite the unforeseen circumstances and his busy schedule he found some time left at short notice for travelling to Saint Agnes Church in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
