Transitional Diaconate Ordination

The Most Reverend Michael Mulhall, Bishop of Pembroke, will ordain Justin Bertrand, Anthony Burchat, and Stephen Helferty to the transtional diaconate tomorrow at 10:00 am at Saint Columbkille Cathedral. To offer more thoughts on the transitional diaconate, here is a post from Father Scott Murray, another priest from the Diocese of Pembroke, whom you may remember as the celebrant of a Solemn High Mass for the Feast of Saint Joseph.

Solemn Mass

Father Scott Murray, a priest of the Diocese of Pembroke, will celebrate his first Solemn Mass on Saturday, March 19 at 11:00 am at Saint Columbkille Cathedral in Pembroke. He will be assisted by Deacon Michael Lund (Deacon) and Father Mitchell Beachey (Subdeacon), both of the Diocese of Pembroke. The choir, provided by Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Academy, will sing Palestrina's Missa Papæ Marcelli.

Biographical details and other items of interest

He was ordained to the priesthood on July 12, 2014 by Bishop Michael Mulhall, Bishop of Pembroke, at Saint Columbkille Cathedral. Currently serving as the parochial vicar of Our Lady of Lourdes, Pembroke and Our Lady of Mount Carmel, LaPasse, Father Scott began celebrating in the Extraordinary Form in Advent of 2015, offering a Low Mass on the first three Saturday mornings of the month.

Deacon Michael Lund also studied philosophy at Saint Philip's Seminary and theology at the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas (STB). He was ordained to the diaconate on October 1, 2015 by His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, at the Altar of the Chair in Saint Peter's Basilica.

Something for Newcomers to the Latin Mass!

Here's a good article posted at the New Liturgical Movement blog about a young person's first experience of the Traditional Latin Mass. It's a good thing for newcomers to read, who can sometimes feel overwhelmed by the experience of the liturgy!

NLM: Young Newcomer to the Traditional Latin Mass

The key is; never be discouraged or frustrated! Experience the Mass calmly and let it change you and teach you. Let it form you according to its ancient rhythm and ceremony. Experience the profound encounter with Christ in the Holy Eucharist, and everything else will flow from that!

Dan Devlin: May He Rest In Peace

I have sad news. This morning, Dan Devlin, a disciple of Jesus Christ, and long-time MC and supporter of the Kingston Latin Mass, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family.

A Sung Requiem Mass will be offered for the repose of his soul on Monday, November 11, 2013 at 10 a.m. in St. Mary's Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, 279 Johnson Street, Kingston, ON.

Without his devotion to the older form of the Mass and his constant faithfulness and support, our community may not be around today. We are so grateful that God gave us such a faithful friend. May he rest in peace.
