Bishop Camilo Gregorio to offer Low Mass on July 14, 2012

His Excellency Msgr. Camilo D. Gregorio, Prelate of Batanes, will offer Low Mass according to the 1962 Missal on July 14, 2012, 8:00 A.M. at Holy Family Parish. 

This is his fifth Mass for SEDSI since the promulgation of Ecclesia Dei in 1988. The previous ones were: a "private" Mass in the house of Mr. Dennis Raymond Maturan in 1993 that was attended by a small congregation, followed after Summorum Pontificium with a Low Mass in the Parish of the Lord of Divine Mercy on January 28, 2008 (see this, this and this). Next came Sung Mass offered by the bishop,(preceded by Confirmations) on September 13, 2008, followed the next day (September 14) with the first properly-celebrated Solemn Pontifical Mass according to the 1962 Missal to be offered in the Philippines by a canonically-regular Catholic bishop since the liturgical reforms took effect. See this article for the September 13 and 14, 2008 Masses. 

He also offered Sung Mass according to the 1962 Missal in St. James Church, Ayala Alabang on October 2, 2008, in St. Jerome Emiliani Parish in Alabang on January 18, 2009, sometime in February 2009 in Marilao (Requiem Mass for the late Msgr. Moises Andrade), sometime in March 2009 in the formation house of the Adorno Fathers in Vinzons, Camarines Norte, and a Solemn Pontifical Mass in Cebu sometime in March, 2011 at the Monastery of the Society of the Angel of Peace.
