For all Tridentine Community members who visit this page, I hope you will be able to relive the happy memories of our time at St. Josaphat and in other places where the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was offered in the Extraordinary Form.
For those who visit this blog regularly, I want to thank you for your interest and your support throughout the past 8 years that this blog has been up.
For those who will find this blog by chance, welcome. I hope you will find in this blog a wonderful historical record of the early days of the Tridentine Mass in Detroit after the liturgical reforms of Vatican II. I also hope you will benefit from the various pieces of religious information offered here.
For those who visit this page because of devotion to St. Philomena, I hope you will take this beloved saint as a friend and as a spiritual sister in Heaven. If you already have devotion to her, I hope that you will continue in your devotion to her. Those who wish may join in a private monthly novena from the 3rd-11th of each month. The prayer may be found on her page. Those accustomed the the previous Friday devotion which was posted here may continue or switch to this new devotional practice.
For those who have found this page for any other reason, I hope God will bless you and that whatever brought you here will do some good for you.
With the establishment of St. Joseph Oratory and the departure of the regular Sunday Mass in the Extraordinary Form at St. Josaphat, I feel that time has come for me to close this blog.
This will be my last blog post here.
The blog will continue to remain online and if need be I will update any schedule information for the sake of those who may find this page by accident.

Again, I want to note this blog is independent of Mother of Divine Mercy Parish. All current official information may be found on the official website or on the parish Facebook page.
With all that said, again I want to thank all of you who have come to this blog and those who may still come in the future.
May God bless you all.
