Campus Ministry of the University of Notre Dame has made public its statement and policy regarding Summorum Pontificum!
Read it here!
Beginning as soon as possible after September 14 (remember Basil Moreau founder of the Holy Cross Fathers will be beatified Sep 15! So many of our priests will be abroad for that joyous occasion) Holy Mass will be offered according to the extraordinary use every Sunday in the Chapel of St Charles Borromeo in Alumni Hall, the most beautiful dorm chapel on campus, at 8:00am. Already they are hoping to have Mass sung by the Basilica Choirs by the second semester!
I can see the statement on baptisms, marriages, and funerals causing a deal of disappointment - but they do have a point - special permission has already been granted to administer these sacraments at all. Perhaps with time this will change.
Regardless, I am thrilled that the Tridentine Mass is returning to Notre Dame after so many years! I am so happy that Campus Ministry has been eager to address our needs and is even planning on helping educate the students about this beautiful form.
I can't wait until September!
