Addressing the many questions raised in response to the June 1 letter on a proposed personal quasi-parish for the Latin Mass Community, a second “Questions and Answers” letter was distributed at Masses on June 8. Both letters can be found on the Upcoming Events & Other News page. As a result, the survey will now be taken on Sunday, June 15, at both Masses.
[Update: the questionnaire has been delayed one week, to June 15.]
In a letter distributed at church on June 1, Fathers DiNardo and Dolan announced that all in attendance at Masses on Sunday, June 8 will be asked to complete a consultative questionnnaire.
