NLM: Fr. George Rutler and Church of Our Saviour, NYC, add Weekly Usus Antiquior

From NLM:


"This just in from the Church of Our Saviour in New York City:

Church of our Saviour
Park and 38th Street
New York, NY 10016


Following the Vatican's instructions and in response to the request of some of the faithful, the traditional Latin Mass will be offered in our parish every Sunday beginning January 4 at 9 AM. Because of canonical regulations which limits the number of Masses which a priest normally offers, the 7:30 and 9:30 will be combined. The new 9 AM celebration will be a Missa Cantata, and books will be provided to assist worshipers in following the texts, along with an explanation of the ritual. This will also provide more time for confessions before the 11AM Mass which remains the principle Mass of Sunday. The rest of the Mass schedule remains the same, with the Vigil mass at 5PM on Saturday, and other Masses at 12:30 and 5PM. Some may want to attend the 9AM in addition to the Mass they normally attend. The church will open at 8PM on Sunday for preparatory prayer and private devotion.

That is great news. A weekly EF Mass where it is needed the most. Watch the conversions this will lead to, the Holy Father's work is bearing fruit!

When I was there, Father Rutler had the TLM on Sundays at 11, now a 9 Mass on Sunday's! And by combining the two Masses--more time for Confessions--how cool would that be to have Confession Sunday morning--before Mass?!
