We visited Johnstown, Pennsylvania, and points north, earlier this month. This included a visit to the little town of Patton, in northern Cambria County, and the good people of Queen of Peace Church, under the pastoral care of Father Ananias Buccione, OSB. For those in western central Pennsylvania who wouldn't mind going for a Sunday drive, Queen of Peace is celebrating Mass according to the classical use of the Roman Rite, every Sunday in the coming weeks. This would be a Low Mass on the Sundays of September 30 and October 7 at 5:00 PM. There will also be a Sung Mass on October 14 at 1:00 PM.
It should be emphasized that these are "private" Masses, as defined by the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum. This would interpret "private" in the broadest possible terms. So, I'm inviting several hundred of my close personal friends to drop in unannounced on the good folks of Patton for the next few Sundays. Queen of Peace can be found at 907 Sixth Avenue, its spire on the hill in the center of town. To get a map, click here.
