Fr. Perrone to celebrate EF Mass in Miami, FL; Archbishop Broglio in Detroit; and more...

I received the following from a fellow parishioner accompanying Fr. Perrone to Miami, Florida where our pastor will celebrate Mass in the Extraordinary Form this coming Wednesday, March 19, at 7:30 PM on the Feast of St. Joseph.  It will be at the Church of the Epiphany with music by Franz Schubert.

Everyone is invited to experience this special event in honor of St. Joseph, patron of the universal Church! For hundreds of years, the beauty of the Latin Mass has inspired the great composers to write music for the Liturgy. This is a rare and unique opportunity to experience the Sacred Music of Schubert in the original context for which he intended its performance. The blend of orchestra, choir, Gregorian chant, candles, and incense, provides a peaceful and transcendent window into the Divine. Guest celebrant for this Extraordinary Form Mass will be Fr. Eduard Perrone, pastor of Assumption Grotto in Detroit. Even if you are not Catholic or familiar with the Mass, you are very welcome to come and observe. Please forward this information to everyone who may be interested. Thank you!

If someone in the Miami area is going, take pictures or observe to see if pictures are being taken and get me a contact or link.

Also, this weekend, Holy Trinity Apostolate is having their annual Lenten Symposium at Ss Cyril & Methodius in Sterling Heights, Michigan.  I wish I could go, but I must pass this year.

Backing up to this Saturday, the Most Rev. Timothy P. Broglio, of the Archdiocese for Military Services will be the keynote speaker.  See details at the apostolate website.  I know there were still openings and they do sell tickets at the door.  At this point, be prepared to pack your own lunch for the day. Go to the homepage or click the flyer.

On Sunday, Assumption Grotto has it's annual St. Joseph's Day Dinner.  From Grotto's homepage:

St. Joseph Dinner - The annual traditional Italian dinner will be held in the gym on Sunday, March 16th, following the Noon Mass. The Romano family and friends will again host this event in honor of St. Joseph. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis (no reservations). Although there is no set price for this meal, your generous donation will provide continuing support for Assumption Grotto. Volunteers are needed to help. To donate food products, please call 249-693-3417.

Here are a few from last year's dinner.  I may post more this Sunday from last year's Mass and dinner.
