“The authority of the Pope is not unlimited. It is at the service of Sacred Tradition. Still less is any kind of general ‘freedom’ of manufacture, degenerating into spontaneous improvisation, compatible with the essence of faith and liturgy. The greatness of the liturgy depends—we shall have to repeat this frequently—on its lack of spontaneity.”
— Josef Cardinal Ratzinger (2000)

2. Here is the location of the Church:

Saint Victor Catholic Church

3. Please arrive no later than 6:00pm for the 7:00pm Mass. I have binders I need to distribute, and I need to do some other things with you, like teaching you a few simple responses.


4. Dress code: What should you wear? The dress code is simple. Wear modest clothing appropriate for Mass. I’m sure you already know what clothing is appropriate for Mass. At this time, we are not doing any special colors or choir gowns, ETC.


5. If you are a male who is very good at chant, please look over all the PROPERS, especially the Introit.


6. Mass will be a Solemn High Mass with four (4) FSSP European Deacons. There will be a potluck following the Mass. For more information, please contact Charles Coulombe at (818) 794-9461.


7. Please send Jeff Ostrowski a brief Email or Text Message, explaining WHY we should not be too nervous about Mass on 30 November. Be creative!!!
