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

Yes Mr. Kramer it is 'good' news. PS Nice work on the "Let's Talk" blog... de Chardin is always a source of concern for me too. I don't know why 2000 years of Church teaching seems insufficient.

... that we should have to rely on the novelties of de Chardin!
