Requiem Missa Solemnis for Msgr. Tullio Andreatta

On Sat, Dec 12, there will be a 9:30 AM Rosary & 10:00 AM Requiem Missa Solemnis for Msgr. Tullio Andreatta, at the Immaculata Church, on the Campus of University of San Diego (USD). Mass will be in the Extraordinary Form, Reception to follow in Madonna Hall. It will be celebrated by Fr. Carl Gismondi, FSSP. This Mass will have a deacon and sub-deacon, which will be Fr. Federico Masutti, FSSP, and either another FSSP priest or a Diocesan priest. The St. Anne Choir will be joined by guest polyphonists singing Joan Brudieu's 'Missa defunctorum'.

Ordained in 1938, Msgr. Tullio Andreatta demonstrated persistent fidelity to his bishop and his flock in his seventy plus years as a priest. He was the first priest in North America to receive permission under Pope John Paul II's indult in Quattor Abhinc Annos in 1984, and served as chaplain for the San Diego Latin Mass community, which dates from that time.
