New instructions issued in Traditionis Custodes regarding the use of the Extraordinary Form of the Mass (Latin Mass).
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.
Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, has just issued new instructions regarding the use of the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. As we now begin to study the details of the new motu proprio, Traditionis Custodes, we will begin to consider the proper implementation of its provisions in our diocese. At the moment, and until further notice, those priests who have already been offering the Extraordinary Form of the Mass may continue to do so, as we move together as a diocese in a smooth and orderly transition to the new course charted by Traditionis Custodes.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Peter J. Jugis, J.C.D.
Bishop of Charlotte
