After 19 years, Sto. Domingo Church in Quezon City to have a regular Traditional Latin Mass once more

The first Mass, on March 10, will be celebrated at the Altar of La Naval (the side altar to the left of Sto. Domingo's main altar) by Msgr. Seamus Patrick Horgan, First Secretary of the Apostolic Nunciature in Manila. The Tiples de Sto. Domingo, the oldest and one of the most renowned boys' choirs in the Philippines, will chant the Propers and Ordinary of the Mass. From March to August, the TLM will be celebrated at that altar every Second Sunday at 1:30 P.M.

The Sto. Domingo Church had been the site of the first "indult" Mass in the Philippines, from 1990 to 1994, with the late Fr. Manuel Pinon OP as the usual celebrant.

As reported on this blog, a Traditional Latin Mass was also celebrated on October 22 last year, at the main altar of the Church, by Fr. Michell Joe Zerrudo. That Mass and the enthusiastic response it generated helped to inspire the Dominicans to restore the regular celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass in this church. 

This Mass was preceded by a "Catechesis on the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite" for Sto. Domingo's parishioners, held in Sto. Domingo Church's parish hall on the evening of February 26, 2013 with Mr. Carlos Antonio Palad, a member of the Council of Foederatio Internationalis Una Voce, as main speaker. Prior to that, the Dominican community had a short seminar on the Extraordinary Form with Fr. Michell Joe Zerrudo as the main speaker.
