Tridentine Mass at Saint Xavier University, 2013 (belatedly)

There has been a series of the Traditional Latin Masses celebrated at the universities in Illinois: at UIUC (Urbana-Champagn), at Loyola University Chicago, and at SXU.
New Liturgical Movement was a good place to find these news, and it made sense to alert them to SXU event - an occasion that cannot be underestimated, considering the liturgical preferences prevailing at that university. I am glad that the Campus Ministry felt confident enough to allow that event to proceed. It would also be great if Saint Xavier University students organized themselves in the similar fashion as did the Una Voce Illini at Urbana.
I would also urge students at other local universities: Benedictine University, University of Illinois at Chicago,  UChicago, Loyola, and others to follow the example of Una Voce Illini.
Sooner the bette. (Visit Una Voce America website for the info on how to start your own chapter).

TLM celebrated in the McDonough Chapel of Saint Xavier University (located in Oak Lawn neighborhood of Chicago), on Wednesday, Feb. 27, at noon. The celebrant was Fr. Anthony Brankin, Pastor of St. Odilo in Berwyn, IL, and formerly of St. Thomas More in Chicago. The Mass was part of the SXU's, Vatican II: Legacy Unfolding conference that ended that Friday with an OF Mass in English and Benediction in Latin.
