Scholarship for Local Priest to Attend FSSP Traditional Mass Training

The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter offered training this summer to interested priests who wanted to learn how to celebrate the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. Given that so many priests responded, the FSSP is offering two separate weeks of additional training, as described below.

Kansas City Catholic and Curmudgeon's Cave want to help send a local priest to this workshop. So here's the deal: the priest from either the Archdiocese of Kansas City (KS) or the Diocese of Kansas City--Saint Joseph (MO) who first emails kansascitycatholic[at] and says that he wishes to receive the training offered by the FSSP will have his $300.00 tuition paid by wolftracker and Curmudgeon.

First email in the inbox [that is, in Orville's inbox, not mine] wins.

Here's more information about the training from a Una Voce America press release:

'Bellevue, WA, Sept. 11, 2007 - The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, in collaboration with Una Voce America, in response to overwhelming popular demand is happy the announce two additional workshops for training priests in the "Extraordinary Form" of the Roman Rite, to be conducted at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary during the Fall Semester of 2007. The first workshop will take place from Friday, October 5th through Tuesday, October 9th. The second will take place from Friday, November 2nd through Tuesday, November 6th. Available placements are limited so priests are urged to contact the seminary at their earliest convenience. The cost for each of these five day workshops is $300.00. All the fundamentals involved in learning the Traditional Latin Mass will be covered.

Priests will receive a complete explanation with hands-on practice of the rubrics of the 1962 Missale Romanum as well as an introduction to Latin, traditional liturgical principles, and Sung Mass. A comprehensive materials packet will be provided including translations of the rubrics, audio CD's with the recited texts of Low Mass and Celebrant's chant for Sung Mass, and a demonstration DVD with examples of both Low and Solemn Mass.
