Michaelmas Events with the FSSP

Here are some pictures of two events celebrated by the FSSP on the feast of St Michael, which this year took the place of the green Sunday after Pentecost in the Extraordinary Form. At the Roman church of Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini, two young members of the parish made their First Holy Communion; as you can see, the Italian tradition of wearing a special formal outfit for this event is still very much alive and well.

The two girls who made their First Communion offer lilies at the Lady Altar before Mass starts.
Tradition will always be for the young!
At the Cathedral of the Risen Christ in Lincoln, Nebraska, of Solemn Vespers of the feast were celebrated by Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary, at the gracious invitation of Fr Justin Wylie, the rector of the church, who attended in choro. Fr Josef Bisig, the founding superior general and currently rector of the seminary, celebrat Vespers, which was followed by the beginning of a 40 hours devotion; about 250 faithful were in attendance.
