Classical Liturgy Society Formed at Notre Dame

[A sort of Press Release. Good news coming out of UND.]

We wish to inform readers... that a group of alumni is in the process of forming a society of members of the Notre Dame community (alumni, students, faculty, and friends of the University) interested in any aspect of the Tridentine Rite, including, by way of example only, its history, theological and philosophical underpinnings, spiritual implications, and the various arts, such as music, architecture, and fine art, that are used to adorn it.

The society’s end will not be political but rather the appreciation of this form of the liturgy, whose beauty, mystery, and intellectual rigor have attracted so many people to a deeper interest in Catholicism. We do hope that the society will act in support of similarly interested students and faculty on campus and will enhance, through its discussions and activities, Catholic intellectual life among alumni and on campus.

If any reader would have an interest in the society, please contact Steven Tantillo at
