For the first time in decades the Traditional Mass returned to the “upper church” of St. Mary’s parish, Greenwich. (The Traditional Mass had already been recently celebrated in the “lower church” and in 2007-2008 as well – in fact this Society assisted at the latter liturgies). A not insignificant congregation was present Friday evening for a Solemn High Mass commemorating the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary – indeed, one reason for the move upstairs was to accomodate those who had expressed interest. As is evident from the above photograph, the sanctuary of St. Mary’s – a combination of circa-1970 “Conciliar renewal” and “Connecticut Yankee” Calvinism, with the tabernacle safely hidden away from view on the side – is not the most accommodating environment for the Traditional Mass. But yesterday evening the Extraordinary Form nevertheless triumphed. Fr. Cyprian La Pastina, the pastor Of St Mary’s, was the celebrant. The priest serving as Deacon was Fr. Stephen Giulietti from the Shrine Church of St. Bernadette; Diocese of Brooklyn. It would be nice to receive information on the other clergy, ministers and musicians (and music).
