You report: First Mass of diocesan priest at Brooklyn Carmelite Monastery

Reader T. Barboza sends us this report from Long Island - another newly-ordained diocesan priest celebrating a Traditional Mass as one of his First Masses:

On the Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, the Reverend Raymond Flores was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Brooklyn. The following Friday, Father Flores celebrated his First Traditional Latin Mass in the Extraordinary Form at the Brooklyn Carmelite Monastery. The Low Mass was the Votive Mass of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on First Fridays. It was attended by the local faithful as well as the cloistered Carmelite sisters, who sang during the entrance, offertory, communion and recessional. Following the Mass Father Flores offered his first priestly blessings.
