A First Mass in Fort Wayne, Indiana

Our thanks and congratulations to Fr Royce Gregerson of the diocese of Fort Wayne - South Bend, Indiana, for sending in these photos from the Solemn High Mass which he celebrated on Corpus Christi, the day after his priestly ordination. The Mass was held at St Peter’s Church in Fort Wayne, and followed by a Eucharistic Procession. The vestments were produced from 2014–2015 by Arte Sacra Benedictus, a small artisanal vestment maker in Toledo, Spain, designed according to Fr Gregerson’s indications and modeled on an antique French set of vestments from the late 19th/early 20th century. (Note the large collar on the dalmatic and tunicle, a classically Spanish embellishment.) The choir was composed of students from the University of Notre Dame, directed by Ms. Mary Catherine Levri, Assistant Director of the Liturgical Choir and Assistant Organist, Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Notre Dame. All photos by Anastassia; I here give just a small selection from the large album on googlephotos. Click here to see the rest.
