Dom Cassian Folsom, OSB, Offers Solemn Mass at Cathedral of St. John Berchmans

We mentioned earlier last month that the Cathedral of St. John Berchmans in the Diocese of Shreveport was hosting a liturgical conference from January 31st to Feburary 3rd for priests in that region, In Utroque Usu: The Pursuit of the Two Forms of the Roman Liturgy.

The conference was to include a number of interesting and highly relevant topics for a new liturgical movement, including mutual enrichment, the hermeneutic of continuity, the reform of the reform, and noble simplicity.

As was also noted, Msgr. Andrew Wadsworth, the Executive Director of ICEL, was slated as the keynote speaker for this conference, and Dom Cassian Folsom, OSB, Prior of the Monastery of Norcia (Italy) was the celebrant of a Solemn Mass.

While -- as of yet -- we have no reports on the conference proper, we have received some photographs of the aforementioned Solemn Mass offered by Dom Cassian Folsom, OSB.
