Please join us at Brideport's beautiful Benedictine Monastery of the Holy Cross as we celebrate the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross AND the 10th Anniversary of Benedict XVI's Apostolic Letter "Summorum Pontificum", which has spurred the recent growth of the Latin Mass! We are grateful to Bishop Joseph N. Perry, Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago, for offering a Pontifical Low Mass for this special occasion! The Mass will be accompanied with splendid hymns from Renaissance composers! 
And it's not too late to REGISTER for our Conference before the Mass, exploring the impact of "Summorum Pontificum"! 
If you're thinking of coming, registering will help your faithful, all-volunteer VBP team! Scholarships are available! 
N.B. The postcard advertises a Pontifical High Mass. Following recent clarifications from the Commission Ecclesia Dei, the Mass will be a Pontifical Low Mass with Hymns, as stated on the flyer.
Our speakers will include our chaplain, the Rev. Charles Fanelli, our co-founder, Scott Agulo, and the Executive Director of the Coalition in Support of Ecclesia Dei (, Mrs. Mary Kraychy! We are especially grateful to Mrs. Kraychy for agreeing to address our group!
