Are there no more Catholic towns?
#17
The Volo, IL church is under the leadership of St. John Cantius in Chicago.  Thank God for the daily Tridentine Mass that's offered (in Chicago and also in Volo), but the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius most decidedly do not seem to view the Tridentine Mass as somehow superior to the Novus Ordo.  I've not heard these words out of the mouth of the pastor, Fr. Phillips, but actions speak louder than words.  They routinely offer a "dressed-up Novus Ordo" for very holy days (Holy Thursday, Holy Saturday) instead of the Tridentine High Mass.  That was a rude awakening to me as that was my new parish.  Oh well, at least I can go there for my Sunday Low Mass.  As far as their praying the Hours, in Chicago they pray the hours in English and it's the "Liturgy of the Hours" (the revised, contemporary prayers), not the traditional Divine Office.
