On Friday, July 16, Pope Francis issued a motu proprio entitled Traditionis Custodes regarding the celebration of the traditional Latin Mass using the Roman Missal of 1962. Archbishop Schnurr has responded to the document, detailing how the Archdiocese of Cincinnati will implement the Holy Father’s motu proprio. (You can read each of the documents by clicking their respective links above.)
More information to follow regarding how this impacts our occasional parish celebration of Mass in the Dominican Rite.
