Event: First TLM in St. Patrick's Cathedral (NYC) since the 1990's

The Traditional Catholicism blog announced a few days ago that a Solemn Mass (1962 Missal) will be celebrated in St. Patrick's Cathedral on November 14, the first since Summorum Pontificum took effect and the first in nearly 20 years:

The (traditional) Councils of the Knights of Columbus – the Regina Coeli Council that meets at Holy Innocents & the Agnus Dei Council – received a generous permission from Cardinal Dolan to have a pilgrimage and a (traditional) Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral before the end of the Year of Mercy.

This will be the first time since Summorum Pontificum that a traditional Mass will be publicly celebrated at the Cathedral of the Archdiocese of New York!

On May 12, 1996, Alfons Cardinal Stickler celebrated a magnificent Solemn Pontifical Mass in St. Patrick's, the first TLM to be said there since the liturgical reforms. That Mass attracted between 4,000 and 5,000 faithful. In 1997 a Solemn Mass was celebrated by Fr. John Perricone, and unfortunately that proved to be the last for nearly two decades.
