Christmas 2009 Miami Latin Mass Schedule Update

O tidings of comfort and joy! 

Christmas is just around the corner, and we have a few announcements!  

1. Sts. Francis and Clare mission will offer Mass at 9 AM on Christmas Day, Friday, December 25th!  
The address is 402 NE 29th ST, Miami, FL, 33137. That's north of downtown, just east of Biscayne Boulevard. Here's a map:

2. St. Malachy will be celebrating a Missa Cantata at 7:30 AM on Sunday, December 27th! Congratulations to all members of the Community who have worked hard to make this possible! As a reminder, St. Malachy regularly offers Low Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite on the first Sunday of each month. The address is 6200 N University Drive, Tamarac, Florida 33321. Here's a map:,+Tamarac,+Florida+33321&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=39.320439,79.013672&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=6200+N+University+Dr,+Tamarac,+Broward,+Florida+33321

3. Mass at Sts. Francis and Clare will be celebrated at 10:30 AM instead of 9:00 AM on Sunday, December 27th! THIS IS A ONE-TIME CHANGE. Mass will continue to be celebrated at 9:00 AM from Sunday, January 3, 2010, onward. This one-time change is to allow some of our Community's altar servers and other members to help with the Mass at St. Malachy's on Sunday, December 27th. We thank them for their generosity, and the Community at large for its understanding.

4. Unfortunately, the daily Low Mass previously offered at South Miami Hospital is no longer being celebrated. We will announce any daily Mass offerings in the future.

Sunday Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite or the Traditional Latin Mass in Miami now at Sts. Francis and Clare Mission

The heart of the Archdiocese of Miami's offerings of Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, the Sunday morning Missa Cantata celebrated for years at St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church, has now moved to a new home: Sts. Francis and Clare Mission Church or San Francisco y Santa Clara! The Community is going strong, and things are looking up at our new location, which will host the Mass according to the Missale Romanum of 1962 at 9:00 AM from now on.

Sts. Francis and Clare is a mission church of Corpus Christi parish. It is located just east of Biscayne Boulevard at 402 N.E. 29th Street Miami, FL 33137. Here is a map:

Our numbers increased after the closing weeks at St. Robert's. More Archdiocese of Miami Catholics are taking part in this beautiful form of the Church's liturgy. Over time, some physical improvements may be made to our new physical home, but as Fr. Joseph Fishwick, our celebrant, pointed out, we are called to rebuild God's Church through Christian charity and faith as St. Francis was before us. Why don't you come visit us?

Here's a quick snapshot of the church I took 20 minutes before Mass.

Sunday Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite or Traditional Latin Mass in Miami- New Time, Location starting October 2009

Our friends at Musica Sacra Florida have posted a message from Fr. Joseph Fishwick who celebrates the weekday low mass at South Miami Hospital chapel and the Sunday missa cantata, which has been hosted at St. Robert Bellarmine for years.

BEGINNING Sunday, Oct. 4th, Mass in the Extraordinary form of the Roman Rite will be celebrated at 9:00 a.m. at San Francisco y Santa Clara Mission at 402 N.E. 29th Street, just east of Biscayne Boulevard.

Let's hear the rest from Fr. Fishwick:

Latin Mass Community / Announcement for All:
We will announce it at Mass for all who are interested on this Sunday, Sept 13th, but beginning SUNDAY, Sept 20th, the Traditional Latin Mass will be celebrated at 9:00 a.m. at St. Robert Bellarmine.   This is ONLY for two weeks.  Then the parish will be officially closed on October 1st, Thursday, and the Latin Mass, until further notice, will be celebrated at the MISSION of SAN FRANCISCO y SANTA CLARA at 9:00 a.m. each Sunday.
To repeat:  BEGINNING Sunday, Oct. 4th, Latin Mass will be at 9:00 a.m.  at San Francisco y Santa Clara Mission.
This Mission chapel of CORPUS CHRISTI parish is located at 402 N.E. 29th Street, just east of Biscayne Boulevard.  It is easily reached from SR 112 (the “Airport Expressway”) by exiting the expressway at Biscayne Boulevard and proceeding south a few blocks and turning left (east) onto NE 29th Street.  If one is coming from the south on Biscayne Boulevard, then obviously one will turn right onto NE 29th Street.  The Mission will be on your right.  Physically, it is about the size of St Robert Bellarmine and is very attractive architecturally, in a Spanish style, and quite conducive to the celebration of Mass in the Extraordinary Form. 
There will be no time constraints from other morning masses.  We hope in the near future to be able to move into a more permanent home, but we must remember that we are a “pilgrim people,” particularly in these uncertain times.   We ask everyone to support the old Mass, this Mass which is the perfect setting for Gregorian chant, contemplative prayer, and a sacrificial spirit, and which is the priceless heritage of our Catholic faith.    “Procedamus in pace…”      
Father Joseph Fishwick
