The church my parents were married at is having a Traditional Latin Mass on August 15th (Assumption!).  I think they used to have a Low Mass said there...  but ICKSP is having their Mass and picnic that day, so I don't think it's being said by ICKSP priests.

Regardless, I thought this was worthy of posting and joy!  :)

I'm tempted to drive the 7 hours one way just to attend, to support the priest!  :)

And this parish is?

(I won't be there - I'll be at the picnic.)

Lolol.  Sorry!  It's Immaculate Conception, in Bay View.  Right near Stemper's Catholic goods store.  :)

Also, praise God, I'm going to the TLM for the first time in a month (the place i work doesn't have it nearby, and I'm in town for the weekend)!  Tomorrow morn' at St. Stan's!  :)

I think I have been there.  If it's the parish I'm thinking of there was a really good older priest there.  I think he's gone now.

We'll be at St. Stan's tomorrow too.  Have plans after, but shoot me a PM if you'd ever like to do breakfast or something after Mass when you're in town some other time.

Will do!  :)

Also, went to IC confession...  Fr. Kotecki (I think?) came out in a cassock.  I was pleasantly surprised.  :) 
Sorry to bump up what might be an old thread, but this topic is what lead me to register here in the first place. I attended the Mass at Immaculate Conception and wouldn't have known about had I not (completely by accident) stumbled upon this thread.

I went to the Mass because I love it when an otherwise "average" parish decides to take on the TLM without calling in priests and other people from outside the parish and scheduling the Mass at a special time. The Mass was on Saturday and replaced the anticipatory or "vigil" Mass. I assumed from the way the parishioners interacted and dressed that the congregation was mostly made up the Saturday evening regulars. You could tell that the TLM was unfamiliar to many involved since the choir got a little ahead of the priest a few times, but overall it was a very nice sung mass without incense.

Basically, they're too nice to tell a hungry guy to learn to fish, or even give him a rod and reel and point him to the nearest lake; it's nicer to just give him a fish.

I've lived in the Midwest my whole life and you hit the nail on the head.  We are generally too nice.  I've noticed that even more true in Minnesota than the other states in which I am familiar (e.g. Wisconsin and Illinois)

Cool!  :)  That's always nice.  I think the previous priest (I have no idea, though) used to say Low Mass occasionally there.
I was at the ICKSP in Milwaukee before once for a Solemn High Mass in 2009.
