External Celebration of Corpus Christi in EF; Orchestral Mass

Tomorrow at Assumption Grotto, the Traditional Latin Mass which is usually at 9:30 a.m., shifts to the Noon time slot for an external celebration of Corpus Christi.  Assumption Grotto has had a long tradition of doing a Eucharistic Procession following the Noon Mass and it will also be an orchestral Mass (see music notes here).

Many would like to see bishops shift the celebration of Corpus Christi in the ordinary form of the Mass back to the actual feast day, which was Thursday.  Fr. Perrone celebrated it Thursday morning.  Being a commuter parish, with parishioners traveling a great distance, a Eucharistic procession of the kind done this Sunday would not have been possible.

I have not spoken to Fr. Perrone in recent days to find out if enough priests were available for a Solemn High Mass, but I know he was anticipating this.

Weather is suppose to be around 80 and partly cloudy, with barely a breeze.

Back in 2010, I took photos and turned them into a video.  I am not sure if I will be taking photos tomorrow.
