You should drive down to Kalamazoo someday to hear Mass at St. Mary's. Fr. James Richardson is the pastor there, and he is doing great things in the parish. They have a traditional High Mass every Sunday at noon, plus morning Low Mass on Friday and Saturday.
"There are not over a hundred people in the United States who hate the Catholic Church. There are millions, however, who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church -- which is, of course, quite a different thing." -Ven. Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

"Let me repeat this sentence. It is impossible in human language to exaggerate the importance of being in a chapel or church before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. That sentence is the talisman of the highest sanctity." -Fr. John Hardon, S.J.

I also live in Grand Rapids.  If you have yet to experience a Latin Mass, I invite you to Sacred Heart of Jesus parish.  No need to drive down to Kalamazoo, we have a weekly missa cantata Tridentine latin mass.  Would love to meet a fellow fishie IRL.

Hi Knight Hospitaller,

Thank you for saying hello! 
You are quite right. No need to drive to Kalamazoo with Sacred Heart having a Latin Mass every Sunday. 
Actually a couple friends and I will be going to Sacred Heart come the end of the month when I have the weekend off from Choir. One friend has been a few times, another I don't know. I suppose just look for the 3 ladies who look like they feel out of place :s :blush:

Finding out the Liturgical year and corresponding vestments are quite different in the Latin Rite from the NO, gives me a bit of pause. I suspect it will be more eye opening than I realize.
