EF Mass for the Exaltation of the Cross in the Bronx

On September 14, the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, an EF Solemn High Mass will be offered at 7:30 p.m. at Church of the Holy Rosary in Northeast Bronx. This will be the first time an EF Mass is celebrated at Holy Rosary, and also a fitting way to mark the 9th anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI’s motu proprio Summorum Pontificum coming into effect. Fr. Jean-Paul Soler of St. Clement-St. Michael’s Parish in Staten Island will be the celebrant. In addition to the chant Propers, music by Byrd, Tallis, and Morales will be sung.

Fr. Soler will give a talk on the EF Mass on the previous Wednesday, September 7 at 7:30 p.m., also at Holy Rosary. All are welcome to both events; the church would especially like to extend this invitation to youths and young families in the Bronx and the nearby suburbs. The church is located at 1510 Adee Avenue, Bronx, New York; the web address is www.holyrosarybronx.org. The church has a parking lot, and is also accessible by public transit.
