Father Charles Garnier, the Apostle to the Hurons and the Petuns, has left a memory of exceptional heroism. In the last moments of the agony that ended in his death, he tried with his waning energies to save the soul of another.

"In accord with no. 55 of the instruction of the Congregation of Rites on music in the liturgy (March 5, 1967), the Conference of Bishops has determined that vernacular texts set to music composed in earlier periods may be used in liturgical services even though they may not conform in all details with the legitimately approved versions of liturgical texts (November, 1967). This decision authorizes the use of choral and other music in English when the older text is not precisely the same as the official version."

Come and enjoy honoring Our Blessed Mother in her month of May through her song! Traditional Catholic hymns, including such favorites as “Bring Flowers of the Rarest,” “Mother, at Your Feet is Kneeling,” and “’Tis the Month of Our Mother” will be played on an extraordinary organ by Peter Krasinski. Those attending will be led in singing the hymns by an outstanding vocalist, Mark Nemeskal. Prior to the singing of each hymn, a brief background of its history and significance in Catholic devotional life will be presented by Peter Meggison.
