OPENING MASS FOR THE QUASI-PARISH
FOR THE EXTRAORDINARY FORM OF THE ROMAN RITE
AT THE CHURCH OF SAINT MARY IN CONSHOHOKEN


On Sunday, the 9th of September 2018, a Solemn Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite will be celebrated at 11 a.m. in the Church of St Mary in Conshohocken.  This will be the beginning of the Apostolate of the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter at St Mary’s.

For some years, it was felt that, while Masses in the older form of the Roman Rite were available to the faithful on Sundays and some other occasions, it would be desirable to provide a particular church which could facilitate access to a daily celebration of Holy Mass in the traditional Latin Rite .  It would also be possible to celebrate the full rites for Holy Week, have more solemn celebrations of days of obligation, to provide for administration of the Sacraments in the traditional rites and enable the faithful to have a venue for the traditional devotions for the various seasons of the year. It is hoped that it will be possible to provide for all of these needs at St Mary’s.

We thank the Most Reverend Archbishop, Charles Chaput, O.F.M., Cap., for his paternal interest and care for the faithful desiring to use in its fullness the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite in the Archdiocese.

Father Carl Gismondi FSSP has been named as Pastor of St Mary’s. Father is originally from Pittsburgh, PA. In 1995, he entered the Fraternity of St Peter’s Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary, then located in Scranton, PA.  Following seven years of study, he was ordained a priest on June 29, 2002.

From 2002 to 2003, Fr. Gismondi served as an Associate Chaplain at the Fraternity's apostolate in Sacramento. From 2003 to 2006, he served as Pastor of St. Michael's Church in Scranton, PA. Following his pastoral assignment, Fr. Gismondi attended the Dominican House of Studies, Washington, DC, where, in 2008, he earned a Licentiate in Sacred Theology. In July 2008, Fr. Gismondi was appointed as Chaplain to the Traditional Latin Mass Community of San Diego. On October 7, 2008, following erection of St. Anne Catholic Church as a personal parish for the Traditional Latin Mass apostolate in the Diocese of San Diego, Fr. Gismondi was appointed as Pastor at St. Anne's.

TO ALL WHO HAVE BEEN PART OF THE LIFE OF THE TRADITIONAL LATIN MASS COMMUNITY OF PHILADELPHIA:

Greetings,

Our Apostolate was created by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to provide a formal structure for the community using the 1962 Missal at St Paul’s Church on Christian Street. When Fr Carey left that parish the Community celebrated a Sung Mass each Sunday first at Holy Trinity Church, 6th and Spruce Streets and then at St Edmond’s Church at 21st Street and Snyder Ave. in South Philadelphia. It was able to have a full Holy Week at Holy Trinity and has celebrated with High Mass a number of the greater feasts at the Cathedral Basilica of SS Peter & Paul through the hospitality of the Rector, Father Dennis Gill.

Despite the hard work and support of many, it became apparent that neither numbers nor income was sufficient to sustain a Sunday Mass after the end of Paschaltide this year.

The Archdiocesan Worship Office suggested that regular worshippers at St Edmond’s would find place at the long-established Mass in the Extraordinary Form celebrated at the Church of Our Lady of Lourdes at 63rd Street and Lancaster Avenue in the Overbrook section of the City. The Traditional Latin Mass Community of Philadelphia has therefore been attached to the Traditional Latin Mass apostolate at that Parish.

Everyone associated with the work at St Paul’s and the other locations is welcome at the 9.30 a.m. Sung Mass each Sunday. It is hoped that many will attend and will add their support to the work at Our Lady of Lourdes.

Father Michael Rock, O. de M., has warmly welcomed those coming to the Extraordinary Form at the Parish. On the third Sunday of each month following Mass there is coffee and refreshments in the Parish Hall and newcomers may find this a useful place to meet the Lourdes congregation.

The Church is easily reached by public transportation either by the Paoli line of the Regional Rail System (the Overbrook Station is served hourly on Sundays), and by trolley service from the City Hall Station. Street Parking in the vicinity of the Church seems fairly easy to find.

We urge all our friends of the Traditional Latin Mass Community to support this celebration of the Latin Mass with their presence and generosity.

John T Lilley,

Co-ordinator
