First of all, my apologies to everyone who sent these in for not getting this post done sooner; I was traveling for several days, and had less time to work on NLM than I thought I would. I am now back home, and will be more diligent about finishing, because we still have more contributions than we can convenient fit into one post, and so there will be yet another within this series (this week, I promise!) So we can still fit in some late submissions, if anyone would care to send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org, always remembering to include the name and location of the church, and any other information you think important. Keep up the good work of evangelizing through beauty!
Oratory of St Mary – Wausau, Wisconsin (ICRSP)
Tradition will always be for the young!
Dawson Chantry – Braes of Enzie, County of Moray, Scotland
Requiem Mass in the Ordinariate Rite, offered especially for the repose of the Catholic Dukes of Gordon who offered protection for the Church on their lands during penal times, and for the first Vicars Apostolic of Scotland, the first being Thomas Nicolson (1645-1718), who is buried in the graveyard beside the chantry chapel.
St Frances Cabrini Parish – Alexandria, Louisiana
Brothers of the Little Oratory – San Diego, California
On October 31, fourteen members of the Brothers of the Little Oratory in San Diego and Chorus Breviarii members from San Diego, Murrieta, and El Centro, gathered in San Diego’s historic Presidio Park and sang Second Vespers of Christ the King, with the commemoration of the following feast of All Saints, followed by Compline, in the overgrown ruins of the chapel of the 1769 Spanish presidio. (This was almost certainly the first religious service offered on the site of the chapel since its abandonment by the Spanish as a fortification in 1831.)
