Workshop For Priests to Learn The Traditional Mass

A workshop for priests in the Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York area who are interested in learning how to celebrate the Traditional Mass, will be held Sunday, April 20 through Thursday, April 24th. The workshop will be conducted by Father Calvin Goodwin, and Deacon Justin Nolan of Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Nebraska, as well as Father Matthew Talarico of the Institute of Christ the King.
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of this event to the efforts of so many Catholics who desire the restoration of the Traditional Mass. I assure you that for the fulfillment of this laudable hoped it is strictly necessary for ordinary diocesan priests to become familiar with the rubrics, spirituality and culture of the Classical Use of the Roman Mass.
Now that the Holy Father has issued his Motu Proprio, Summorum Pontificum, recognizing that the Mass of our ancestors had never been abolished by the Church and that every priest of the Roman Rite has the right to celebrate Holy Mass according to the Missal of 1962 the focus of our efforts as faithful and militant Catholics must be turned to the home front.
Every priest trained in the Classical Use of the Roman Rite, is a priest that will say the Traditional Mass, and every Traditional Mass that is celebrated is a triumph for the Church, a correct and proper honor paid to the majesty of our Lord, and a defeat for the enemies of God and His Church, both mortal and spiritual.
I ask for your financial help in making this workshop possible. The expense of providing and transporting the instructors, the cost of making the items and publications needed by the participants in their instruction as well as the cost of housing and feeding the number of expected priests that will participate is great, and it would be impossible to accomplish this without you help. In gratitude for your generosity I can assure you that you will be remembered at each of the many Masses that will be celebrated by both instructors and participants during the course of the workshop.
