Once again, I’d like to extend an invitation to you, dear friends in Christ, on behalf of Holy Family Catholic Church in Columbus, for the September 14th Solemn High Mass for the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. As many of you are aware, September 14th is the date set for the full implementation of the motu proprio “Summorum Pontificum.”
The Solemn High Mass which will be offered on Friday, September 14th at 7:00 p.m. at Holy Family Catholic Church in Columbus, Ohio, will provide a unique opportunity not only for the faithful as yet unfamiliar with the Extraordinary Form of the Mass, but will also utilize several precious artifacts from the Holy Family Jubilee Museum. The 1607 Pius V Missal will be used for this very special Mass, as will the Mary Queen of Scots Chalice and vintage vestments. To quote Fr. Lutz: “the oldest of the old.”
These items are generally kept in the Pontifical Museum, but will be brought out for this day of joyous celebration.
Additionally, on the same day, at EWTN, there will be a Solemn High Mass with the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter. We have let them borrow our main altar cards, historic missals and ciboria for the occasion. In exchange, Holy Family and the Jubilee Museum will be mentioned on air. Be sure to watch EWTN for this coverage.
