This Sunday (September 18, 2011), St. Margaret Mary's will have the honor of welcoming once again, His Excellency Bishop Salvatore Cordileone (Diocese of Oakland) as he makes his 2nd canonical visitation to our parish (his first visit took place in 2009, see above photo). His Excellency will celebrate a Pontifical Solemn Mass at the Throne (Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite) at 12:30pm. Very timely since just yesterday, September 14, the Catholic Church not only celebrated the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, but also marked the 4th Year anniversary of the implementation of Pope Benedict's "Summorum Pontificum".
At the same time, we bid farewell to Canon Jean Marie Moreau, who for the past three years, has been the Episcopal Delegate for the Rite of 1962 in the Diocese of Oakland. Canon Moreau's new assignment will be at the St. Anthony's Oratory in New Jersey. We welcome our new Institute priest, Canon Henry Fragelli! Canon Fragellie comes to us from St. Mary's Oratory in Wausau, Wisconsin. After the Pontifical Solemn Mass, a special reception will take place at the churchyard of St. Margaret Mary's.
