Regret for Mass cancellation and Low Mass for July 3

Dear Members and Friends of the St. Gregory Society,

We deeply regret the cancellation of the 2:00 p.m. Mass in the traditional form at St. Stanislaus on Sunday June 26. We have learned that Fr. Jan Pikulski, who was to have celebrated the Mass, took a bad fall and was unable to get word to us that he would not be able to offer the Mass. Let us all pray for Father’s swift recovery.

This coming Sunday, July 3, the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, will be observed in a Low Mass celebrated at St. Stanislaus Church by The Reverend Canon Joel Estrada, ICKSP, at 2:00 p.m.

Your faithfully,

The Officers of the St. Gregory Society

TLM canceled for August 22

Owing to the high winds, heavy rain, and potential flooding anticipated during the hurricane Henri’s arrival tomorrow, the 2:00 Latin Mass at Saint Stanislaus Church in New Haven has been canceled. This decision has been made out of consideration for the safety of the celebrant coming to New Haven from Fairfield as well as many of those coming from a distance to attend the Mass.

New Haven’s Latin Mass during Covid

Catholics throughout the world have been confronted with a serious obstacle to the practice of their faith by the Covid-19 pandemic during these past months: access to the sacraments, the heart of religious life, has been challenged by possible mortal health consequences. Submission to local authorities, both religious and civil, limited this access significantly during the late spring with the closing of churches for the public celebration of Mass. Beginning in July, public celebration of the Eucharist resumed with carefully defined restrictions, including the wearing of masks and social distancing directives.

In the New Haven community, we rejoice that the Traditional Latin Mass is again celebrated at St. Stanislaus Church every Sunday at 2:00 pm and on the First Friday of each month at 8:00 am. At. present, only Low Mass is offered, owing to the challenges presented by the pandemic with regard to the physical interaction among servers and choir members at High Mass.

The Saint Gregory Society invites all who are committed to the Traditional Liturgy, as well as those who would like to learn more about it, to attend these services and make their availability known to others.

We also encourage all those who visit this page frequently to have recourse to the “Prayer in Time of Pestilence” below.
