a. St. Ann Catholic Church in Charlotte: (Low Mass)
b. Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Salisbury:(Missa Cantata)
c. Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Taylors, SC:(Missa Cantata)
2. Father Barone in Guadelajara, Mexico: Many of you are already aware that Father Barone is on a short sabbatical at a parish in Guadelajara, Mexico where he is studying Spanish through immersion. Please see the attached photos of Father Barone at this beautiful parish which is run by the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter.
3. Good Press for Diocese of Charlotte: Thank you to Pat Klass for sending this to me. Father Noah Carter was given a very nice write up on the website, New Liturgical Movement regarding both his First Mass of Thanksgiving and his new vestments which were commissioned in honor of the occasion.

4. Junior Postulancy Formation Program at St. Ann Catholic Church: I am very pleased to pass along this fantastic new development at St. Ann in Charlotte at the request of Mr. Stefano Monaco the director of the St. Ann Latin Mass Altar Boy Ministry.
Fr. Reid is announcing an expansion of the St. Ann MEF Altarboy Ministry. Beginning this Fall, a Jr. Postulancy will be established with the purpose of exposing younger boys to some basic rubrics and participation in the Masses in the Extraordinary Form for processions and to sit in coro prior to their eligibility for the full Postulancy at 11 years old.This new Jr. Postulancy is open to boys who have made their First Communion, are at least in the third grade, and have be approved by Fr. Reid. To participate, they will have to attend a couple of trainings to learn the critical rubrics, postures, and skills to effectively participatein coro at a High Mass on Sundays and other special Holydays.Ordinarily, Jr. Postulants will not be required to attend the intensive bi-weekly training for Ranked boys and full Postulants; however, on occasion, there may be a need to have them attend some of these trainings for the purpose of preparing for a ‘big’ Mass.If you have know of any boys whom you would like to nominate for this Jr. Postulancy, please email Mr. Stefano Monaco (email@example.com) their name(s) and date(s) of birth by who will be consolidating the nominations for Fr. Reid’s review and approval.St. Ann MEF Altarboy MinistryJr. Postulancy Formation ProgramMission:The Mission of the Jr. Postulancy is to expose younger boys to some basic rubrics and to allow participation in Masses in the Extraordinary Form in processions and to sit in coro prior to their eligibility for the full Postulancy at 11 years oldObjectives:-- Learn basic rubrics for procession, posture, & in coro participation-- Learn basic Server prayers (in English)-- To mature and discern interest in full PostulancyEligibility:-- Boys who have made their First Communion-- Are at least in the third grade-- Are approval by Fr.
