Closing of Holy Trinity

It's been reported that Holy Trinity, one of the two churches in the Archdiocese of Boston offering the TLM, is going to be closed on June 30th.

As I stated in the link above, I will continue to pray for a miracle but if they close Holy Trinity [a 20-minute drive for me], I’ll drive to Still River [an hour's drive]. Yes, Pope Benedict’s motu proprio has done wonderful things here in the Archdiocese of Boston, i.e. we'll be left with just one church which celebrates the TLM every Sunday but hey, the SSPX has opened another chapel in the diocese.

I can't tell you what a comfort the TLM has been to me the past few months. It has been my refuge, readying me for the spiritual combat of the ensuing week.

Oh well, I'm already not contributing financially to the Archdiocese. I guess my physical presence isn't needed either. Edited to add: I contribute a decent amount to this parish, Holy Trinity. I wish I could have done more financially.

Thanks Cardinal Sean!

Greetings on the 3rd Class Feast of St. Silverius, Pope and Martyr.

I want to welcome you to St. Blog's Parish Hall. You are on the newly listed blogs list. Welcome.

It is sad to see Holy Trinity close. As a strong SSPX supporter and Tridentine supporter, I hate to see it close.

Pax tecum.

Thank you Matthew. Sunday (6/22) will be the last time I attend Mass there as I couldn't bring myself to attend the last official TLM on the 29th.
