Visiting Boston in Episode 2 of Extraordinary Faith airing on EWTN, Plus Free TLM Priest Training

After the April premiere of Episode 1 of Extraordinary Faith, I am delighted to hear that Episode 2 will air on July 13 and 17 on EWTN, and this time in very good slots (5 p.m. and 10 p.m. respectively).

The episode will feature the Boys' Choir at St. Paul's in Cambridge, interviews with members of Juventutem Boston, and footage of the April 2013 Solemn High Mass offered there, the first since the implementation of the new missal.

If you haven't already watched it, Episode 1 is available in toto here.

Also, be sure to check out Extraordinary Faith's main website where there are a number of helpful resources for introducing people to the TLM, including a very generous offer which parishes would do well to consider. From the website:

Are you a priest or bishop interested in learning how to celebrate the Extraordinary Form of the Mass? Looking for an easier alternative than one of the multi-day training workshops offered by various religious communities? Extraordinary Faith has an innovative option for you to consider.

Over the years, members of the staff of Extraordinary Faith have trained numerous priests, bishops, and musicians to celebrate and sing for the Traditional Latin Mass. We recognize that not every person can afford to attend one of the out-of-town training workshops, either financially or time-wise. We are therefore providing a convenient alternative: we will come to you instead. We offer a condensed course, to be conducted in one or two days according to your availability, at your parish, in how to celebrate the Extraordinary Form Sung Mass (Missa Cantata) and Low Mass. No experience is necessary, just a desire to learn the Church’s historic Liturgy. By the end of our time together, you will have celebrated at least one Mass – we guarantee it. In fact, we’re happy to provide references to prove our capabilities.

Our philosophy is simple: One does not need to be a mechanic in order to drive a car. We believe you will be motivated to learn more about the Classic Form of the Mass after you learn how to celebrate it. We’ll get you started; how much additional learning about the Mass to pursue afterwards is a matter of personal preference.

Best of all, celebrant training is provided at no charge anywhere in North America as part of our apostolate. Even the travel expenses will be covered. There is only one requirement: Clergy taking us up on this offer must commit to holding Mass in the Extraordinary Form at least once per month, for at least three months, commencing within two months of our visit.

For further information, please call (248) 952-8190, or e-mail

If you are looking for resources to help you start a TLM in your parish, share this information with your pastor and priests who would be willing to learn the Mass.
