The News From God’s Country

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.

Just curious, did I see you @ St. John's in McLean @ the noon norvus ordo mass in Latin on the 23rd?

If it wasn't you, you got a twin. ;-)

If I was wearing a gold vest with lapels and ducking in and out of the sacristy, yeah, that was me. I'm slated to be the emcee for the Trid Mass there starting 21 October, and I was the subsacristan that day.

You coulda said something, you know?

I wasn't 100% positive it was you. But it was. I even walked right by you & you smiled at me. ;-P

Now, I know. I'll be in Fairfax the weekend of the 21st.

you & your wife still up for that pint?

Elena, I didn't know you were in that area. What a small Catholic blogosphere.
