Liturgical Events in Rome and at a University

We have had a few requests for event announcements of recent, and while we cannot post all of these, I thought I would share a couple of them with you for reason of the particular context in which these particular events are occurring; in the first instance, Rome, and in the second, associated with a university campus and recent university lecture.

The first is that Giovani e Tradizione has announced that on the Feast of St. Pius V, May 5th in the calendar of the usus antiquior, Fr. Vincenzo P. Nuara will celebrate a Mass in the usus antiquior in the chapel of S. Madre di Dio "Salus Populi Romani" in the Papal Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, offered for the Holy Father.

Second, another Dominican, Fr. Dominic Holtz, O.P., of the Aquinas Institute of Theology at St. Louis University, will be celebrating a Mass in the usus antiquior at St. Paul's Catholic Center in Bloomington, Indiana tomorrow evening, April 29th, at 8pm. This is being done in conjunction with the IU Jacobs School of Music.

Just today, Fr. Holtz also delivered a lecture on campus titled, "Liturgical History and Musical Performance Practice: Issues to consider for a performance of a Missa Tridentina". More information may be found here:
