Bishop Morlino did what? What’s that all about?”

You may have seen notices and articles over the last year or so about Bishop Robert C. Morlino celebrating “Pontifical Mass at the Throne in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.”

It is possible that some of you, seeing “Throne,” and “Pontifical,” and “Extraordinary,” might say “What’s that all about?” as you turn the page.

In a short series over the next few issues of the Catholic Herald, let’s drill into “what that’s all about.”

Go check out the rest at the Herald’s website.

Pontifical Mass – Purple Vestments

A new project: Crowd Funded Pontifical Vestment Set in Purple.

Would you like to help the TMSM fund a purple vestment set for a Pontifical Mass at the Throne? It can also be used for Solemn Masses throughout the Diocese as well.

Click HERE to support.

The TMSM currently has commissioned and completed a gold set, as well as a black set, and is currently in the process of funding a purple set. We plan, in the long term, to have a complete set for the liturgical year which would mean obtaining sets in green, red and rose.
