Ars Serviendi Workshop: Benedictine Abbot Celebrates Pontifical Mass in the Usus Antiquior in Poland

One of our readers in Poland informs us that this past July 27th, Abbot Bernard Sawicki O.S.B. (Abbot of Tyniec Abbey, Cracow) celebrated a Solemn Pontifical Mass during a liturgical workshop, "Ars serviendi", which was organized by the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter as well as other groups within the Archdiocese of Cracow in Bukowina Tatrzanska.

During the couree of the week, approximately 50 participants participated daily in Solemn masses and, wonderfully, sung Vespers and Compline. They further heard conferences about the usus antiquior and learned how to serve at the altar according to that missal.

The following photos were sent in from the Pontifical Mass of the aforementioned Benedictine Abbot.
