Easter Sunday Mass
The below is from Father Mc Donald pastor at Saints Josephs Church in Macon:
After eight years of celebrating the Extraordinary Form of the Mass on a regular basis, Saint Joseph Church will move its first Sunday of the month EF High Mass at the special time of 2:00 PM to the last Sunday of the month at our normal 12:10 PM Sunday Mass.
Our 12:10 PM Mass is celebrated in the Ordinary Form but "ad orientem" for the Liturgy of the Eucharist and Holy Communion is distributed at the full length of our newly restored altar railing.
Because the orientation of this OF Mass is similar to the orientation of the EF Mass and we have been celebrating the Mass this way for four years, I feel that this congregation will not be too unsettled by the all Latin, all orientem EF Mass the last Sunday of the month.
We plan to use a bit more Latin for the OF Mass than currently, but not too much. We hope to chant the Gloria and eventually the Credo in Latin each Sunday and perhaps in a year we will strive to learn the Pater Noster for the Ordinary Form. But the OF Mass will remain primarily English.

Traditional Nuns of the ICKSP
Father Denis Bouchard, FSSP, former pastor of St Francis de Sales in the Atlanta Diocese has been instrumental in the founding of a new traditional order of nuns in the USA. Please have all women interested in a traditional vocation to contact the nuns below.
VIENNA – With the blessing of Bishop George V. Murry, S.J., a small group of women is preparing to launch the Missionary Sisters of St. Francis of Assisi here.The three, including superior Mother Mary Francis and two candidates, have been approved as a private association of the faithful, a group who come together for ministry and who hope to, over time, develop into a diocesan religious institute of sisters.
Bishop Murry will perform a liturgical ceremony at Queen of the Holy Rosary Parish here March 19, which will include a reading of the decree establishing the association, investiture of their foundress, Mother Mary Francis, and acceptance of the two candidates.Mother Mary Francis will receive the habit of the novice for the Missionary Sisters of St. Francis – a traditional black habit with brown scapular and white veil. “People are very curious about the habit,” she said.“We’re very excited,” said Father Denis Bouchard of the Priestly Society of St. Peter, pastor of Queen of the Holy Rosary Parish here, and spiritual guide of the three women as they have worked to develop their association.All three minister at the parish’s St. Joseph the Protector Learning Center, which works to support parents who are home schooling their children.They also assist Father Bouchard at the parish, which offers Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite approved by Pope Benedict XVI, also known as the traditional Latin or Tridentine Mass.“We also have a website, ‘Oremus’ (Latin for ‘Let us pray’),” Mother Mary Francis said. It broadcasts a Holy Hour of Reparation for video viewing through the Internet on Sunday afternoon and a Miraculous Medal Novena on Wednesday morning.In addition, Oremus carries a First Friday devotion and a morning First Saturday Devotion each month – along with the Stations of the Cross each Friday evening during Lent.“We have people watching and praying with us from over 70 countries,” Mother Mary Francis said. The website address is http://www.dominusvobiscum.org/.
