We share the following:
“At St. Mary’s, Greenwich, CT, a Solemn High Mass for the Feast of the Sacred Heart will be celebrated on Friday, June 3rd at 7:30 in the evening. Following Mass there will be the sung Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. Mass will be celebrated by a newly ordained priest who will offer his first priestly blessing following Mass.”
The following churches will offer traditional Masses this week for the Feast of Corpus Christi. Please let us know if you know of a mass in the area that is not on this schedule.
As of this moment, we know of six Solemn Masses – and at least two missae cantatae – which will be celebrated between Thursday and Sunday in the New York area. We perhaps take for granted the remarkable liturgical progress that has been achieved between the promulgation of Summorum Pontificum in 2007 and now. A quick perusal of this blog’s “Archives” folder for 2007 or 2008 will demonstrate the point. And thanks to Catholic Traditionalism, so many feasts of the Church that had fallen into semi- desuetude have been gloriously revived: Corpus Christi, Candlemas, All Souls. There have been bitter losses to be sure – we all know parishes that once welcomed the “Extraordinary Form” which have discontinued its celebration. Others, however, have taken their place. The number and solemnity of the Traditional liturgies in this region continues its slow but steady growth!

From the Latin Mass community in Jersey City:
“Pentecost is always kept with special fervor by the Latin Mass community in Jersey City, NJ, since that is the Feast on which the old rite was resurrected in 2003. This year the Mass will be moved from 9:00 am to 2:00 PM to permit it to be offered with particular care and also to mark the 40th anniversary of the ordination of the Rev. John A. Perricone. Fr. Perricone regularly celebrates Holy Mass for this Latin Mass Community which is now part of the parish of St. Anthony of Padua and also teaches his Aquinas course for the parish. Fr. Perricone, a professor of philosophy at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, has spent his entire priesthood fighting for the integrity of the Faith and has been in the vanguard of liturgical restoration.
The resident choir at St. Anthony’s, Cantantes In Cordibus, will sing Mozart’s Missa Solemnis (KV 337) with orchestra under the direction of Simone Ferrarasi. The Propers will be sung by the Men’s Schola under the direction of Joseph Orchard, PhD. Motets will include Franck’s Dextera Domini, Biebl’s Ave Maria, and Desmet’s Ecce Sacerdos.
A dinner will be held afterward in honor of Fr. Perricone and tickets can be obtained through Dan Marengo. email@example.com.
