A Pontifical Baptism in the Extraordinary Form

St. Josaphat's Church in Detroit (now called Mother of Divine Mercy Parish due to a parish merger) held an extremely rare event this past July 28th, a Pontifical Baptism in the Extraordinary Form. The celebrant was Bishop Francis Reiss, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Detroit. You can see more photographs of the ceremony at the parish website. Thanks to Mr. Christopher Din for sending us the link. (Images of another such event from more than three years ago can be seen here at Orbis Catholicus.)
