Missa Cantata in Queens, NY

On June 19, 2013 in The Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens, A Sung Latin Mass "Missa Cantata" was said in Holy Child Jesus Catholic Church in Richmond Hill, Queens. The Mass was part of the event "Grilling With God", which includes Mass or Holy Hour, followed by a barbecue fellowship with a talk.

In this case the topic was "Faith and Tradition" and no other way to express tradition than the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. The Celebrant and speaker was Rev. Fr. Daniel Champoli of the Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens, whose has been advocating for the use of the Extraordinary Form. To my knowledge, this was the first Latin Mass ever in this Church since the reforms of the council.
