EWTN to telecast Latin High Mass live on Sept. 14

Everyone is invited to tune in! Mother Angelica's Eternal Word Television Network will broadcast its first-ever Latin Solemn High Mass live this September 14, a Friday, at 8 a.m. EST, from the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville, Alabama.

From its branch in Denton, Nebraska, the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter will provide the celebrant and a deacon, subdeacon, preacher, master of ceremonies and altar boys.

Father Calvin Goodwin, a professor at the FSSP's Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Denton, says, "Most Catholics have not seen this heavenly celebration in over 40 years. We are very excited to help EWTN and to support the Holy Father’s call for a wider presence of this form of the Mass. This is a cause for great joy."

A media advisory by the FSSP adds this:

"Established in 1988 by Pope John Paul II, the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter is an international society of Catholic priests entrusted with the preservation and administration of the Catholic Church’s ancient Latin liturgical traditions. Over 120 seminarians are preparing for the priesthood in the Fraternity’s two seminaries in Bavaria, Germany and Denton, Nebraska."

One of our priests from Cantius told me last night that he's going down to assist as well!
