Ordinariate Evensong, Los Angeles, November 20

No doubt by now you have heard the news, announced by Archbishop Wuerl, that the American ordinariate will be erected on January 1, 2012. This epochal event deserves considerably more commentary than I can offer at this point, but while you are in a patrimonial frame of mind, I would like to mention to our readers in Southern California that a Solemn Evensong in honor of Christ the King and St. Cecilia will be held at St. Mary of the Angels, Hollywood, this coming Sunday, November 20, at 4 PM. The choirs of St. Mary of the Angels and the Blessed John Henry Newman Society of Orange County will be accompanying the liturgy. St. Mary of the Angels, a historic Anglo-Catholic parish founded in 1918 to minister to the fledgling film industry, will be joining the new Ordinariate on its establishment. Readers may also enjoy this photo-gallery showing the parish's delegation to an archdiocesan-wide procession in honor of Our Lady of the Angels held in Los Angeles Cathedral earlier this year.
