Traditional Latin Pontifical Mass – 9/14/17 – Cathedral Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul, Philadelphia


From George E. Gunning

Dear Friend of the Traditional Latin Mass Community,

     This year we celebrate the tenth anniversary of the implementation of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI’s motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum.  This document has been a great blessing to our community here in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and we could not allow its anniversary to pass without a significant acknowledgement.  On September 14th, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, our community will gather at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul for a very special celebration.  With the permission of the Archbishop of Philadelphia and the encouragement of the Rector of the Cathedral Basilica, a Solemn Pontifical Mass will be celebrated by His Most Reverend Excellency Joseph N. Perry.  Bishop Perry is an auxiliary of the Cardinal-Archbishop of Chicago and he is a great friend to the traditionalist community in that Archdiocese.
     This Solemn Pontifical Mass will be both beautiful and reverent.  It will also be expensive.  As a supporter of the Tradition Latin Mass we are appealing to you for your financial support of this Mass. It is our goal to fund the expenses of the Mass in total so we are not a burden on the already burdened budget of the Cathedral Basilica.  While some very generous donors have stepped forward already to help the Traditional Latin Mass Community of Philadelphia pay the expenses of this Mass, more support is still needed.
     Please consider making a tax deductible gift to the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul to support this important event in the life of the Church here in Philadelphia.  The best way to make your gift is by mailing a check directly to the Cathedral Basilica (1723 Race Street, Philadelphia, PA, 19103) with “Traditional Latin Mass” in the memo line.  If you wish to make a gift but credit card you can do so by calling the Cathedral Rectory during business hours at 215-561-1313.  If you choose to make a gift by credit card please indicate during the call that it is a gift for the Traditional Latin Mass on September 14th.
     Thank you for your help and prayerful consideration.  This is a major undertaking for the Traditional Latin Mass Community here in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia so your support is very important.  Please plan to join us for the Mass and help us spread the word!
Thank you,
Traditional Latin Pontifical Mass Committee
