EWTN SUPPORTS TRADITION & THE LATIN MASS

UNA VOCE GEORGIA IS PLEASED TO BREAK THE FOLLOWING WONDERFUL NEWS:


EWTN has announced the debut of Extraordinary Faith, a television series showcasing the beauties of Sacred Tradition and the Tridentine Mass. Episode 1 was filmed at the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano in California, located about one hour south of Los Angeles.

Episode 1 includes some background information about the series, as well as an interview with George Sarah, a Hollywood composer who was asked to become president of Una Voce Los Angeles after he organized a number of special high-profile Tridentine Masses in historic churches. Joy Lanfranchi of Una Voce Orange County discusses the annual Lenten Pilgrimage from St. Michael’s [Norbertine] Abbey to the Mission, culminating, not surprisingly, with a Latin Mass.

DVD copies of this and every episode of Extraordinary Faith will be available for sale from EWTN’s Religious Catalog. Our contract with EWTN also permits us to post each episode on our web site, one month after it debuts on the network. Beginning Wednesday, May 14, 2014, Episode 1 will be available for viewing on www.extraordinaryfaith.tv. Please note that the site is not yet up, but will go live no later than Tuesday, April 8. At that time, you will be able to view a trailer introducing the series on the site.

EWTN beginning Monday, April 14, 2014 at 1:30 AM Pacific time. The episode will be re-run on Good Friday, April 18, 2014 at 11:00 PM Pacific time. The network wanted to run the episode during Holy Week because of the Lenten Pilgrimage segment. EWTN is considering future airings of Episode 1 at more convenient times of the day.

Over two years in the making, Extraordinary Faith was co-founded by two veteran promoters of traditional liturgy: Executive Producer, Writer, and Host Alex Begin, a long-time organizer of Latin Masses in the Archdiocese of Detroit, Michigan and the Diocese of London, Ontario, Canada; and London, England-based journalist Mary O’Regan, who served as Writer, Producer, and Co-Host on the first two episodes.

Photo taken of some of the nuns from the grill of their enclosure


Prayerful greetings from the Dominican Nuns in Marbury, Alabama.  Do you know anyone who might be interested in a religious vocation?  We are hosting a Vocation Retreat the weekend of June 13-15, and would like to invite homeschooled sophomores, juniors and seniors, homeschool graduates, or any interested young women to learn more.  Could you pass on our invitation to your homeschool group and anyone who might like to learn more?

Thank you so much!  Several of our Sisters were homeschooled, and know firsthand the value of parents so dedicated to the Faith.  Our retreat went well last year--please pray that many young women will respond to Our Lord's invitation this year also.   May God bless and Our Lady keep you and your families!

With assurance of prayers in Our Lady,
Mother Mary Joseph, O.P. and Sisters
