The Friars' Farewell Mass

(I think it's safe to say the Friars won't be dressed like Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce, or Eric Clapton. Nor will they fight as much as Baker and the late Bruce did, with Clapton often forced to play referee.)

Kathy has announced Fr. Francisco Nahoe and Fr. Paul Fazio will be offering the Friars' final First Friday High Mass as a Solemn High Mass, requiring a third visiting Friar, on Friday, June 1. The Friars will be leaving Reno later that month. This will be the first Solemn High Mass we have been part of since Fr. Timothy O'Brien's First Mass at Holy Spirit Mission in June 2015. We'll want to give our all for such a memorable -- and slightly melancholy -- Mass, for we have no idea when or if we will ever sing for one in the Cathedral again.

Call time will be 5:45 PM or whenever you can arrive from work.

Coming Up in Southern California and Chicago: Symposium and Colloquium

FSSP Los Angeles is hosting the Sacred Music Symposium from June 18-22 at the St. Therese Carmelite School in Alhambra. More information, including when registration will open, can be found on the Corpus Christi Watershed site or its Facebook page. Here's a video look at last year's symposium:

This should not be confused with the CMAA's annual Sacred Music Colloquium which will run from June 25-30 at Loyola University's Lakeshore Campus in Chicago. This is the one to which Kathy goes every year, but the Symposium could be a closer alternative if the cost is prohibitive.

Heck, why not go to both? You'd be in extreme danger of becoming a better singer.
