Pontifical Mass for Life

There is an upcoming pontifical mass to celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation on March 26. Here's a couple details:

Bishop Timlin will celebrate the Pontifical Mass at the faldstool according to the Roman Missal of 1962, the form of the Catholic Church’s Mass in Latin before the Second Vatican Council. Organist and choirmaster, Pedro d’Aquino, will lead the schola and choir singing Missa O soberana luz by Portugese composer Filipe de Magalhães (c1571-1652).

For more details, read about it here. H/t to Fr. Z, who blogs about it here. Sponsored by the New York Knights of Columbus. Thank you, good sir knights.
