Filipino University Student Organization Sponsors Usus Antiquior Mass

A reader from the Philippines sent this in a few days ago.

This Mass was celebrated last February 2, 2009 in our University Chapel to launch our SOPHIA Week 2009. the Mass was celebrated by the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Constantino Batoctoy, a retired parish priest and Honorary Prelate of Pope John Paul II.

As far as I know, our Student Organization is the first Civilian (Non-religious) Organization in the Philippines (or at least in the Visayas and the Mindanao) to sponsor a Mass said in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.
