Bishop Cordileone in Napa Valley

A reader sends in the following:

On July 31, 2011, a Solemn Pontifical Mass in the Extraordinary Form was celebrated by his Excellency, Most Reverend Salvatore J. Cordileone (Bishop of Oakland, CA) at the Estate Cave of the Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa, CA. It was part of a 3-day conference titled "Catholics in the Next America" that was organized by the Napa Institute. The organizers had the blessing of the local ordinary, Bishop Robert Vasa (Diocese of Santa Rosa), where the resort is based. The Pontifical Mass at the faldstool was made possible with the assistance from the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest and the Norbertine Fathers of St. Michael's Abbey. The Schola came from St. Margaret Mary's Church in Oakland, CA.

Various photos are available here along with a video of the homily of Bishop Cordileone.
