Tridentine Mass planned for this Friday in Boston's South End

From Robert Quagan:

Fr. John Connolly, Rector of Holy Cross Cathedral (recently named administrator of Holy Trinity) has officially given his consent to the request that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in its Extraordinary Form (Tridentine) will be celebrated at Holy Trinity (German) Church in Boston’s South End. The Mass will be offered in thanksgiving for Pope Benedict XVI's recent motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum. The Mass will be celebrated by Rev. William McInnis, SJ on Friday, 14 September 2007 at 6:30 pm. All parishioners and friends of Holy Trinity are cordially invited to attend. Given that Holy Trinity was the home to the Indult Mass for 17 years, it is a fitting place to celebrate the Holy Father's gift on the day it takes effect. This will be a low Mass but, in keeping with Holy Trinity tradition, there will be music. Genevieve Schmidt, Director of Music, is responsible for the music program.

The church is located at 140 Shawmut Avenue, Boston, MA. Telephone: (617) 426-6142.
