Bishop Dabrowski’s Visit to St. Benedict


On Sunday, March 12, Diocese of London, Ontario Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Dabrowski made a pastoral visit to the St. Benedict Tridentine Community at St. Alphonsus Church. He was accompanied by Fr. Mark Sargent, Director of Priest Personnel for the diocese. His Excellency and Father remarked extensively on the beauty of the Sacred Liturgy and the evident faith and dedication of the members of the community. Thanks to all of the faithful who made the Mass and reception so memorable for these dignitaries and all who were present. VBP Chicago Hosts Tridentine Mass at National Shrine of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini


Véritas Bónitas Púlchritas, a young adults’ group in Chicago, organized the first Tridentine Mass to be held at the National Shrine of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini since Vatican II, on Saturday, March 25 for the Feast of the Annunciation. This past December’s Prayer Pilgrimages bus tour paid a visit to this Shrine, which bears many architectural similarities to Royal Oak’s Shrine of the Little Flower Basilica. Both are in the Art Deco style, and both are pre-Vatican II churches built in the round. The Chicago Shrine closed in 2002 when the adjacent Columbus Hospital was closed and torn down. It reopened in 2012 after an apartment building had been built over and around it. Los Angeles Sacred Music Symposium 2017


For the second year in a row, the Los Angeles apostolate of the Fraternity of St. Peter will host a Sacred Music Symposium, to be held June 26-30 at St. Therese Church in Alhambra, California. Organized by FSSP-LA music director and chief of the Corpus Christi Watershed music resource web site Jeff Ostrowski, this promises to be a smaller, more intimate opportunity to learn or sharpen one’s skills with Gregorian Chant and sacred polyphony than larger conferences such as the CMAA’s annual Sacred Music Colloquium.

St. Eugene Cathedral in Santa Rosa, California rescued and restored an historic High Altar from a church in Philadelphia and is making it the centerpiece of an architectural upgrade to the church.
