No Sunday Traditional Mass at Silver Spring on July 23 or 30

Due to the unavailability of a celebrant, the Traditional Latin Mass will not be celebrated at the Silver Spring TLM Congregation on Sunday, July 23, or on Sunday, July 30. We encourage attendees to consult our seven-day schedule to find a Traditional Mass elsewhere in the area.

Silver Spring TLM cancelled Sunday due to weather

The Traditional Latin Mass Congregation of Silver Spring has announced that the Mass scheduled to be offered on Sunday, January 24, at Old St. John the Evangelist Church in Forest Glen, has been canceled because of anticipated poor road conditions, access, and parking due to this weekend’s winter storm.

We direct our readers to this notice from the Archdiocese of Washington:

With inclement weather predicted for the next couple of days, we wish to remind the faithful that Masses in archdiocesan parishes will be celebrated as regularly scheduled, however, dangerous travel/road conditions are legitimate excuses from fulfilling the Sunday Mass obligation.

Readers planning to attend Masses anywhere in the Washington area this weekend are advised to check parish web pages and this site for schedule updates. Those unable to attend Mass may wish to view the Traditional Mass at St. Thomas More Priory broadcast online by Magnificat Media at 9:00 am Sunday.

Storm forecast forces Saturday TLM cancellation at Annandale St. Michael

The Traditional Latin Mass (Extraordinary Form) that was scheduled to be offered this Saturday by Reverend Father Richard Carr at St. Michael Church in Annandale has been cancelled. Because of the heavy snow forecast, it is anticipated that snow removal activities in the parking lot will impede access to the church.

Readers planning to attend Masses anywhere in the Washington area this weekend are advised to check parish web pages and this site for schedule updates.

Msgr. Bastress’ illness alters Mass schedule at Baltimore St. Alphonsus

In an email note from a kind reader, we are informed that Monsignor Arthur Bastress, 87, pastor of St. Alphonsus Church in Baltimore, has been a patient at Baltimore’s Mercy Hospital since Sunday afternoon suffering from infections in his left wrist and elbow, which may require surgery.

We ask that, in your charity, you pray for Msgr. Bastress’ full recovery to health of body and soul.

There will be no Friday Traditional Latin Mass at St. Alphonsus on October 31.  Traditional Masses for the November feasts and the 21st Sunday of Pentecost will be offered as scheduled, including an All Souls’ Day Mass at 7:00 pm.  Readers are advised to phone the parish office at 410-685-6090 for information about future Masses; information received at our website will be passed along as it becomes available.
