Traditional Latin Mass Returns to Georgetown University

On 11 February 2010, the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes, the Traditional Latin Mass returned to Georgetown University's Copley Crypt Chapel after an absence of many months (according to an article in Georgetown's student newspaper The Hoya about the return of the TLM, the last was offered in May 2008).

On 25 February, the second such Mass, a Low Mass, was offered, on the Thursday of the First Week of Lent. Father Stephen Fields, SJ offered the Mass for the repose of the soul of a relative of one of those in attendance.

Please pray for the students involved with the cause of the TLM on the Georgetown campus, and pray also that the traditional Mass has a more permanent presence at this institution.

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us!
Our Lady, Help of Christians, pray for us!
Mother of Perpetual Help, pray for us!
St. Joseph, pray for us!
St. Ignatius Loyola, pray for us!
