EF Pontifical Mass at Mundelein Seminary - Friday, April 25th (Updated)

The website of St John Cantius Parish in Chicago announces that on Friday, April 25th, at 4 p.m. (Central Time), His Excellency James Timlin, Bishop-Emeritus of Scranton, Pennsylvania, will celebrate a Pontifical Mass according to the Missal of 1962 at Mundelein Seminary. (directions) This will be the first Pontifical in the usus antiquior at Mundelein in almost 50 years; it is part of the program of a national meeting of the Institute of Religious Life. The St John Cantius website also gives the musical program of the Mass, including pieces by Couperin and Charpentier; the Mass setting will be a very new composition, the Missa Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam, by Fr. Scott Haynes, one of the Canons Regular of St John Cantius.

I have also been informed that through the generosity of Corey and Katherine Huber of the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations, the IRL extends a special invitation to all our IRL friends and affiliates, especially cloistered and monastic communities, to participate in the 2014 IRL National Meeting by viewing all the scheduled chapel events online via video streaming.
