From New Liturgical Movement:

After the tragic shootings in Arizona, we are reminded to pray for and support our priests even more. Please remember to show your support for the Traditional Latin Mass, the FSSP, and their newly ordained priests this weekend. Fr Joseph Heffernan, FSSP, a parishioner of Mater Ecclesiae, Berlin, NJ, will celebrate his First Solemn Mass in the Delaware Valley at 2:00PM, this Sunday, June 15, at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, 18th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia.

 If you are in the Virginia area, don’t forget that the Rev. Mr. Daniel Heenan, FSSP and the Rev. Mr. Zachary Akers, FSSP, will be ordained at St. John the Apostle Church, Leesburg, VA (101 Oakcrest Manor Drive NE) at 9:00AM, Saturday, June 14. Father Heenan will celebrate his first Mass on Sunday, June 15, at 9:30AM at the Chapel of Christ the King, Christendom College, Front Royal, VA, and Father Akers will celebrate his first Mass at 12:30PM at the Church of Saint John the Baptist, also in Front Royal, VA.
