2009 Solemn High Mass in the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception

The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) concluded their annual pilgrimage of reparation with a Solemn High Mass in the Crypt Church of the Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC on 6 June 2009. Father James Buckley offered the shorter form of the Pentecost Ember Saturday Mass according to the 1962 Missal, and was assisted by clerics and seminarians of the Priestly Fraternity, along with a Gregorian chant schola of local Catholics, mainly from St. Mary Mother of God parish in DC.

And, if you would ever like to have images from liturgical events posted on my blog - images like these - please do not hesitate to email me. I am wanting to start posting images from parishes that offer the Tridentine Latin Mass as often as possible. As the 2 year anniversary of Summorum Pontificum approaches, I am hoping to support the parish-level "grassroots" work that is taking place.
