Una Voce Quad Cities takes great pleasure in making the following announcement:
Beginning August 3, 2008, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered in the extraordinary form (Missa Cantata) every Sunday at 4pm at St. Anthony’s Church in Davenport, Iowa. Frs. Scott Lemaster, David Brownfield, and Tim Regan will alternate in offering the Mass. For parish information see this.
Our heartfelt gratitude goes to Bishop Martin Amos and his director of liturgy, Deacon Frank Agnoli, who administered a diocese-wide survey of interest in the Traditional Latin Mass and then encouraged six diocesan priests to seek training in the extraordinary form. We are also deeply grateful to these priests (three of whom will be offering the Traditional Mass at St. Wenceslaus in Iowa City, also beginning August 3rd, at 1:30pm) for sacrificing their time and energy to offer us the ancient form of Mass, and to the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius in Chicago who offered the (by all accounts superb) training program they attended in May. Thanks to Father Z
Apparently, fasting from Midnight is not necessary for Masses held at 4:00 p.m. A three hour fast will suffice, it has been said. But I would check with the parish with the later Masses, just to be sure.
