Recently Formed Oratory in Maine Admits First Novice

The recently formed Fraternity of St Philip Neri which is at Lewiston in Maine, receives its first novice this coming month. Tyler Tracey will be formally admitted at a ceremony at 5.30pm at the Basilica of Ss. Peter and Paul, 122 Ash Street on Friday May 3rd. It will be followed by Vespers, Adoration and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

The community formed only last year and as an Oratory in formation they are three priests of the Diocese of Portland, Maine, a private association recognised by the Bishop of the Diocese. Tyler will become the fourth member of the community. I am particularly pleased to hear the news and plan to go myself because Tyler is a graduate of Thomas More College whom I know well.

By all accounts the church is a worthy home for a community devoted to beautiful liturgy and I am looking forward to seeing it. I give you some photos from their website.
