First Traditional Latin High Mass in Spartanburg in 40 Years

(www.RemnantNewspaper.com) Sunday, July 11, 2010--Spartanburg, S.C.--Nearly 400 lay faithful assisted at the first Traditional Latin High Mass offered on a Sunday at St. Paul's Catholic Church in Spartanburg, S.C. (Diocese of Charleston) in 40 years.
 
Fr. Timothy Gahan, Pastor of St. Paul's, graciously hosted Fr. Robert Ferguson, FSSP, for the High Mass at the regularly-scheduled 12:15 parish time slot. Lots of Catholics from Spartanburg, Greenville, Greer, Simpsonville, Mauldin, Easley, Anderson, Taylors and other Upstate, S.C., cities made the trek for the beautifully sung Mass. As is usual with Traditional Latin Mass offerings, lots of young families with many young children could be seen assisting.
 
Fr. Gahan thanked Fr. Ferguson for offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass--the Mass of All Ages--and welcomed him back to offer Mass again at St. Paul's in August. Coincidentally, St. Paul's was the home of the very first Traditional Latin Mass petition to the then-Bishop of Charleston--Bishop David Thompson, with more than 200 signatures back in the mid-1990s. It took nearly 15 years since this first request, but God works in mysterious ways as Gregorian Chant was heard again in the hallowed halls of the church in the heart of the Bible Belt!
 
Deo Gratias! And thanks to Fr. Gahan and Fr. Ferguson for helping to fill the Summer void for Traditional Catholics in the Upstate! We look forward to many more opportunities!
