Extraordinary Form Workshop Update

Fr. Scott Haynes from the The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius visited Holy Rosary at the end of February for a workshop on the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. I was there for a couple of sessions and daily mass, the experience was great! I learned alot about the Extraordinary Form and am really looking forward to learning more.

The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius sent this update to Shawn Tribe of The New Liturgical Movement...

At the invitation of the Most Rev. Patrick R. Cooney, S.T.D., S.T.L., Bishop of the Diocese of Gaylord, Michigan, Fr. Scott A. Haynes, a priest of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, Chicago, Illinois, visited the Diocese of Gaylord from February 24-29, 2008, to instruct priests in the celebration of the Roman Rite according to the Extraordinary Form. Fr. Donald Libby of Holy Rosary Parish in Cedar, Michigan, hosted the workshop, which also provided training to altar boys in the ceremonies of Low Mass and High Mass. Each day the Holy Mass was celebrated according to the Missal of 1962, as the faithful were catechized on the meaning of the Sacred Liturgy. The Sunday celebration of the Extraordinary Form will be coming to the Gaylord Diocese by Easter. Deo Gratias!
