March 27: Juventutem Mass at St. Josephat with Fr. Pullis


The Pertinacious Papist is reporting that Archbishop Vigneron's secretary, Fr. Steven Pullis, will be celebrating his first, public EF Mass on Friday, March 27 at St. Josaphat Church in Detroit.  He explains:

A particularly busy priest has undertaken the learning of the Tridentine Mass: Fr. Stephen Pullis, a young priest who currently serves as Priest Secretary to Detroit Archbishop Allen Vigneron, will celebrate his first public Mass in the Extraordinary Form on Friday, March 27 at 7:00 PM at St. Josaphat Church. He is no stranger to the Latin Mass; he assisted the Archbishop at last year’s Extraordinary Form Confirmations at St. Edward on the Lake Parish in Lakeport. 
It is always cause for gratitude when another priest learns the Traditional Latin Liturgy, but it is especially remarkable when that person has the non-stop agenda of the Secretary to the Archbishop. May God bless him for fitting this into his schedule. 
Juvent├║tem Michigan will host its monthly dinner for young adults age 18-35 after Fr. Pullis’ first Mass.
Follow Juventutem Michigan on Facebook to keep up with their schedule.  They are quite active.
