Southeastern US Latin Mass Conference

On the heels of the very successful Una Voce conference in Alabama, now follows a large conference for the entire southeast. This southeastern conference is sponsored by Una Voce Sarasota. Please spread the word!

Christ the King Chapel, the first and only FSSP Apostolate in Florida,
( will celebrate its First Anniversary over the weekend of April 16- 18, 2010. This weekend will also be used to host a Southeastern US Latin Mass Conference titled " Being a Traditional Catholic in 2010". All like-minded Traditional Catholics are welcome to attend but they must inform Una Voce Sarararsota in advance of their attendance . To RSVP your attendance please e mail Stan at".

A tentative program is as follows:

Friday, April 16 - Registration and Welcome in Church Hall followed by 6:30 PM Mass, a snack, then Compline.

Saturday, April 17 - 9 AM High Mass w/our excellent Gregorian Choir followed by daylong conference in Church Hall. Christ the King expects to have FSSP guest speakers such as Father Calvin Goodwin or Father Justin Nolan. Light buffet lunch will be provided by the Chapel and a dinner will take place at a nearby moderately price Amish restaurant.

Sunday, April 18 - Regularly scheduled Low Mass at 9 AM and High Mass at 1030 AM. Coffee and doughnuts - and a final chance to meet and talk with the FSSP Priests - takes place in the Church Hall after both Masses. This would end the formal conference in the very early afternoon.

Several Una Voce Leaders - as well as several Florida groups with a Traditional Latin Mass but not yet with an Una Voce Chapter - have already expressed keen interest in the weekend but we must set a April 11, 2010 deadline for firm attendance commitments. Any queries about local, convenient motels or other housekeeping questions are welcome. Sarasota Airport's symbol is SRQ.

All Fourth degree Knights of Columbus in Georgia have been invited to take part in the honour guard for the below historic mass. When the Basillica was consecrated before Vatican II there was a Fourth Degree honour guard many thousands of men strong, hopefully this can repeated.

Vatican’s Cardinal Castrillón Hoyos Will Celebrate the
First Traditional Mass at the National Shrine’s High Altar in 45 Years
Washington, DC- The Paulus Institute announced today that on Saturday, April 24, 2010, at 1 p.m., the fifth anniversary of inauguration of Pope Benedict XVI will be commemorated in the Great Upper Church of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Washington DC, by a Pontifical Solemn High Mass in the “Extraordinary form”—commonly known as the “Traditional Latin Mass” or “Tridentine Mass”—celebrated by the Vatican prelate Darío Cardinal Castrillón Hoyos of Colombia.
This will be the first such Mass said at the Shrine’s High Altar in nearly 45 years. All Catholics are invited, many of whom may never have another opportunity to attend such a Mass. Cardinal Castrillón is the President Emeritus of the Vatican’s Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei (Church of God), where he assisted Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI in facilitating this form of the Mass.
In July of 2007 Pope Benedict issued the apostolic (papal) Summorum Pontificum (of the Supreme Pontiff), in which he confirmed the permissibility this Mass. It is one of the two uses of the same rite of the Eucharistic Liturgy, along with the Missal of Pope Paul VI in 1970 (the “Ordinary” form). Evolving since the early days of the Christian Church, the Mass was essentially in place by the 6th Century during the papacy of Pope St. Gregory the Great and codified by Pope St. Pius V in the 16th Century. It was last changed by Pope John XXIII in 1962 and so used during the Second Vatican Council. In 1984 Pope John Paul II permitted use of the Missal of John XXIII, and further facilitated it in 1988 and 1992. Pope Benedict noted that the Latin liturgy of the Church in each century of the Christian era “has been a spur to the spiritual life of many saints and reinforced many peoples in the virtue of religion and [facilitated] their piety,” adding, “What earlier generations held as sacred remains sacred for us too.”
Writing that since this Mass “must be given due honor for its venerable and ancient usage ... let us generously open our hearts and make room for everything that the faith allows.” The pope noted in an accompanying letter that “young persons too have discovered this liturgical form, felt its attraction, and found in it a form of encounter with the Mystery of the Most Holy Sacrifice particularly suited to them.”
The Paulus Institute in Washington DC is sponsoring the Mass. “We are honored that His Eminence Cardinal Castrillón Hoyos will be celebrating this Mass at our invitation, especially on the anniversary of Pope Benedict’s inauguration and at the High Altar of the National Shrine,” said Institute President Paul King. “It is a privilege to recognize the Pope on this auspicious occasion and assist his call to give due honor to the 1500-year old Mass for its ‘venerable and ancient usage.’”
“We are inviting all Catholics to this Mass for the unity of the entire Catholic community, including those unfamiliar with it and particularly young adults and families.”
