“Father Daniel’s special work during his stay at Ihonatiria was with the children. Their parents had not trained or disciplined them, they were utterly lawless and bad-tempered, but with infinite forbearance and kindliness the missionary became a favorite with them… Having taught them to sing, he proceeded to train the children to chant the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Commandments, which he had rendered into Huron rhymes. Formed into a choir, they added beauty and solemnity to the chapel services and attracted great numbers of their elders to Mass.”
— From the Life of Saint Antoine Daniel (d. 1648)

This is the Final Message I will send before Mass on 30 November.

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!!!
