Musica Oramus EF Explanation and Mass Returns this Weekend!

The venerable Musica Oramus group, based in Elm Grove, WI, will continue their series on explaining the Extraordinary Form of the Mass this Sunday at 2pm at St. Mary's Visitation Parish in Elm Grove.

The afternoon will consist of two talks, beginning at 2pm, with the Extraordinary Form of the Mass to follow at 3pm (this will fulfill your Sunday obligation).  Fellowship and refreshments will follow the Mass.

The Presenters:

Fr. Nathaniel Miniatt, was ordained this past spring for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and is currently the Associate Pastor at St. John Vianney parish in Brookfield.  Fr. Miniatt grew up in Beaver Dam and eventually studied Philosophy at the Catholic University of Lueven in Belgium and the North American College in Rome where he completed his S.T.B. and S.T.L. (in Sacred Liturgy).  He will speak on how to pray through the Traditional Latin Mass, with special emphasis on how to avoid the trap of frustration or distraction when you cannot "keep up with the priest".

Joshua Dieterich is the Adult Formation Director at St. Mary's Visitation Parish in Elm Grove.  He studied Church History at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago and Catechetics at Franciscan University of Steubenville.  He will speak on the proper understanding of an interior "full, conscious, active participation" in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and how this can be applied to the praying of both the Ordinary and Extraordinary Forms of the Mass.

The final session of this series will be March 5th at St. Mary's Visitation, and will feature a dinner reception following the Mass.

Love how the informed and educated laity are rising to the challenge with amazing initiatives like this. Catholics deserve to know about their liturgical traditions and heritage. Three cheers for Musica Oramus!
