Reform of the Reform Parish of St. Willibrord, Utretcht, Reportedly Adds Usus Antiquior to Offerings

News is coming to the NLM of a parish we have reported upon before, St. Willibrord in Utrecht.

Our reader offers the following (in unofficial translation) taken from Katholiek Nieuwsblad (Catholic Weekly) in the Netherlands:
From Easter onwards there will be celebrated at St. Willibrord Church in Utrecht on Sunday and Solemnities at 17.30 a traditional sung Holy Mass. The archdiocese has reached an agreement with the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter.

This is in addition to the Latin Mass sung at 10.30 am each Sunday (ad Deum), according to the ordinary form. Daily there is also at 10.30 hours a non-sung Latin Mass in the Utrecht church. "As the Latin center that we want to be, we are very pleased about it," says Timo Tomassen, chairman of the St. Willibrord Apostolate. "We can now offer both Latin rites in both forms at our center.

The NLM is still trying to confirm these details.
