Two years ago, on August 5, 2014, His Eminence, Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, had ordained Canons Francis Altiere, Benjamin Coggeshall, Joel Estrada, and Andrew Todd to the Sacred Priesthood for the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest at the St. Francis de Sales Oratory, St. Louis, MO. The video recording of this special event is so far the most watched video on our YouTube channel, with 16,800 views and counting! Kindly remember them in your prayers today!
We are pleased to share with you the photos from the Solemn Pontifical Mass (Extraordinary Form) in honor of Father Augustus Tolton, Servant of God, that was celebrated last April 25, 2016, by His Excellency, the Most Reverend Joseph N. Perry, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Chicago and Diocesan Postulator for the Cause of Father Tolton. The 130th Anniversary celebration of the First Solemn Mass of Fr. Tolton took place at the St. John the Baptist Catholic Church at Costa Mesa, CA, a parish being taken cared of by the The Norbertine Fathers of Saint Michael’s Abbey. By all accounts, it was a full packed church, with some people even coming all the way from Oregon and other far flung places!
We are currently in the process of editing the video of the Pontifical Mass and we hope to post it soon. In the meantime, here are a selection of photos we took — the rest can be viewed at our smugmug photo gallery. While any of our photos and videos may be freely posted on other blogs and websites, we are only requesting an acknowledgement / credit to be given to the Traditional Latin Mass Society of San Francisco with a link to our website (http://sanctatrinitasunusdeus.com).
