There will be a Traditional Latin Sung Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite at Our Lady of Peace Church in Manhattan on Thursday, July 30 at 11:30 P.M.
Today the annual Traditional Pilgrimage took place which concludes the celebration of the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the patron of the Pontifical shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel on East 116th Street, New York. Father Chris Salvatori was the celebrant of the missa cantata; Bill Riccio was the organist. In addition to the Latin chant, Italian and French hymns were sung. The devout, largely Haitian, congregation processed into the church on their knees. It was heartening to see how this community has made the celebration of this mass their own! I had hoped, however, to see many more representatives of the New York Traditional Mass community. After all, Our Lady of Mount Carmel is one of three locations (the others being St. Agnes and the late lamented St. Ann’s) where the regular celebration of the Traditional Mass in New York City first resumed in the 1980’s.
(Above) The sanctuary of this church is one of the most extravagantly decorated in New York. The holy image above the altar is currently being restored; a painting was substitued.

(Above) Up to the 1970’s this was one of the most famous Italian parishes in the city. Today other nationalities, such as the Haitians, make up the bulk of the congregation.
Father Sean Connolly will be offering a Solemn High Mass on July 19th at 3PM at Sleepy Hollow Latin Mass, Immaculate Conception Church, Sleepy Hollow, NY.
After Mass Father Connolly will offer his first priestly blessing. An informal reception for him will follow.
