Fr. Parkerson on Fr. Z's blog; Hispanics at the MEF

Dear Friends of the Mass in the Extraordinary Form in NC:

Some of you doubtless have read Fr. Zuhlsdorf's report on the changes which Fr. Parkerson is instituting at Sacred Heart, and here is the link for the rest of you 
Consider this essential reading.  The MEF in NC started in Dunn, and now takes a lead in the USA with new developments.  We MEFers in NC are quite proud.

And here is Fr. Z's report on the Hispanic TLM Missal: 
When the money is there I'll buy one for our MEF at Our Lady of Grace in Greensboro; right now I need to buy more red books for the OLG MEF and some yellow Latin-Spanish books. 

I have posted this writeback on Fr. Z's blog:
"In addition to Las Posadas during the Novena before the Nativity of Christ, on Good Friday in Dunn Parkerson leads a Cristo Muerto procession.  

"Our Hispanic friends refuse to let Easter play second fiddle to Christmas, as it seems to be in Northern Europe and in the English speaking world.  EASTER COMES FIRST! -- and the Nativity of Christ, coming second, is equal in importance to Pentecost.  In Spain and in Italy Easter is celebrated with high ceremonial solemnity. We in the USA need to start doing the same."
We've had a few Hispanics with us at the MEF in the Charlotte Diocese from the start, first with us at Davis Chapel, Wake Forest University, then in Mount Airy, and then in Greensboro.

Let me dream a minute:  It would be wonderful if we MEFers, with the help the Knights of Columbus, took the lead in Charlotte and in Greensboro by approaching Hispanics and organizing with them a Cristo Muerto procession for an upcoming Good Friday.  And after that is up and running, Las Posadas for the Novena of the Nativity of Christ.  (I had to look up Posadas myself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Las_Posadas)

I'll get a confirmation from Fr. Parkerson about his changes when he is back from his priests retreat, and then let all'y'all know.

With rejoicing and prayers

MEF in Salisbury

Sunday, 31 August 2014, 1804hrs

Dear friends of the Mass in the Extraordinary Form in NC:
Father John J. Eckert, Pastor at Sacred Heart Salisbury, telephoned me shortly after my email yesterday about the good new at Our Lady of Grace, Greensboro. He asked me to make the following known after he has announced it at Sunday Masses today:

Fr. Noah Carter, who has been substituting for Fr. Barone at Sacred Heart will become the Parochial Vicar at Sacred Heart, by appointment by Bishop Jugis.  And this means that the MEF there will continue.

Good news for the folks at Sacred Heart.  Please continue your support of the MEF at this parish.

Press Release from Fr. Kowalski, Our Lady of Grace, Greensboro


 "I am pleased to announce that Bishop Jugis has appointed Fr. Jason Barone as Parochial Vicar here at Our Lady of Grace.  Father Barone will be arriving sometime on or near October 1st, as he is presently studying out of the country.  The obvious question: will the MEF be returning to the regular SundayMass schedule here at OLG?  The answer is: yes.  A start date and time have not been finalized, pending Father's arrival, etc.  Once Fr. Barone has gotten moved in and we have had a chance to finalize the details, I will let you know.  Until then, please be patient and do not contact either Father Barone or myself asking for further details.  We joyfully await Fr Barone's arrival and look forward to a resumption of the MEF here at Our Lady of Grace in the near future.  Thank you and God bless you all!" 

I just got off the phone from Fr. Kowalski.  Let me add that we all obey strictly Father Kowalski's directive NOT to contact Fr. Barone or Fr. Kowalski asking for further details; they do not need to be bombarded and hounded about details.  Fr. Barone is currently in Mexico.  When Father Kowalski informs me about the details, you will in turn be the first to know.

For now a big THANK YOU to Bishop Jugis, and let's offer up Psalm 150 in thanksgiving!
