I just got back from Lancaster, PA and attended a Beautiful Solemn High Mass last night for the Feast of the Assumption of Our Blessed Lady.

The Mass was held at a NO Parish, however I believe their young Priest Fr. Tcheou strictly only says the TLM... Does anyone know more about himHuh?
At any rate, he seems very Holy and his Sermons were extremely powerful. I went to his Mass at 1:30 on Sunday as well, and spoke about how he didn't understand why the Bishops no longer made August 15th a Holy Day of Obligation if it falls on a Monday! He also spoke about other Modernist problems at the NO...

Is Fr. Tcheou a FSSP priest or is he just independent?? I do know he doesn't say the NO at that Church at all.....

Anyone from the Philly area know more about himHuh???

The TLM at St Anthony's was originally a small apostolate of Mater Dei community in Harrisburg. Our priest, Fr Parrinello FSSP, used to drive down to Lancaster to hold a TLM for them. Fr Tcheou took over for him because he obviously couldn't keep driving an hour down to Lancaster. Mater Dei has grown to more than 200 families since than and St Anthony's TLM in now Every Sunday at a somewhat normal time.
Lancaster county is part of the Diocese of Harrisburg. I believe its the only TLM in Lancaster county.
bttt
TeaGuyTom,

Where does Fr. Parrinello do Mass now?? Is it at the Cathedral in Harrisburg?? Thanks!
Fr. Tcheou is quite awesome. I believe he actually primarily says the NO, but like many young NO priests these days he is very committed to the TLM.

The FSSP have an apostolate at the Saint Lawrence Chapel of the Saint Patrick Cathedral in Harrisburg, PA. 
I attend Holy Mass at St Anthony Church in Lancaster.  I also chant  the propers and sing in the choir.  Father Pang Tcheou is a very holy and learned priest who is Chaplin at Millersville college.  He celebrates both the NO and the TLM.  He is a young and dynamic priest who has embraced the TLM.  Holy Mass is at 1:30 pm Sundays with confessions 1/2 hour before Mass.  He was raised in Lancaster and is a diocesian priest.

Very nice!! I would love to join the choir there, but I live about 2 hours away and don;t know if I could make it every Sunday.....Do you need extra people?

Something for me to think about though...!
Our choir is looking for more voices to join in.  Check out this website:  http://sursumcorda.weebly.com
