Bishop Peter Elliot to Speak in St. Louis September 29-30

As usual, I am scooped on a St. Louis Catholic event by another blog, even though I was kindly informed by Credo St. Louis itself of the event.  As usual, I blame my paying job.  But hey, its nice to have a paying job, yes?

To quote NLM about the event:

The St. Louis Chapter of the Latin Liturgy Association is pleased to welcome liturgist Bishop Peter Elliot to St. Louis Saturday and Sunday, September 29th & 30th, 2012 for a public lecture and Holy Mass at Historic St. Mary of Victories Chapel downtown. His Excellency is an international authority on liturgy, and on the Anglican Ordinariates now authorized by Pope Benedict XVI. The public is invited; free of charge.

The lecture is titled “
Benedict XVI and the Liturgy: Vision and Practice” and will take place Saturday evening, September 29th at 7:30 PM.

Bishop Elliot will celebrate Holy Mass in the Ordinary Form in Latin at 9 AM on Sunday, September 30th.


Both will take place at historic St. Mary of Victories Chapel 744 South 3rd Street, in downtown St. Louis (

I would recommend attending this Mass to anyone who has not been to an untranslated NO Mass before.

They are celebrated ad orientem, there is Gregorian chant, and Communion is still given at the altar rail. It's unlike any other NO Mass in the diocese.
