Obstacles to the service of the Tridentine Mass continue: changes in the schedule of the Holy Mass!

Dear brothers and sisters of the community in Moscow and friends of the Catholic tradition in Russia!

Unfortunately, we again have to inform you that tomorrow, Sunday, September 8, 2019, at 10.30, in the crypt of the Church the Tridentine Mass will not be held. Instead, Mass will be served in Novus Ordo in Latin.

Due to illness Augustine Zenzel SDB cannot offer the Holy Mass tomorrow, and the Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus promptly proposed a replacement - Fr. Antonio Serrano Gotarredona - who was ready to celebrate Mass in the Extraordinary Form at 6pm.

However, the rector of the cathedral NZPDM Vladimir Kabak SDB rejected this option and did not allow serving the Tridentine Mass on Sunday at all.

The next intervention in the spiritual life of the Catholic Catholic community by the church administration deeply distresses us.

We ask you to pray for a speedy recovery for Fr. Augustine and invoke God's blessing on him!
