Solemn Pontifical Mass in Australia on Summorum Pontificum Anniversary

On Sunday, July 7th, the Australian Catholic Students Association concluded its annual conference with a Solemn Pontifical Mass celebrated by His Lordship Geoffrey Jarrett, Bishop Emeritus of Lismore, at St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney, Australia. Providentially, this grand occasion coincided with the 12th anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI’s historic document Summorum Pontificum. Over 500 faithful were present to pray and to witness the majestic and ancient beauty of the Pontifical liturgy; for some students, this was their first experience of such a liturgy.
