Mass for St John Henry Newman in Philadelphia Cathedral This Sunday

This coming Sunday, October 9th, a solemn Mass in the Ordinariate rite will be celebrated at the Cathedral of Ss Peter and Paul in honor of St John Henry Newman, taking the place of the cathedral’s regularly scheduled Sunday Mass at 6:30 pm.

Last year, this Mass, which has become an annual event, was offered by Bishop Steven Lopes of the Ordinariate of the Chair of St Peter, presiding from the faldstool in the presence of the Most Rev. Nelson Pérez, Archbishop of Philadelphia, who attended in-choir on the throne, and preached the homily. Here are some pictures provided to us by the Durandus Institute for Sacred Liturgy, which organized the ceremony in conjunction with the clergy of the Ordinariate: see the full set at this post from last year:
