Dominican Rite News

From Fr. Augustine Thompson: Dominican Rite Update: Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology

He writes: "I am pleased to report that the course has enrolled all the transitional deacons and those scheduled to be ordained transitional deacons, as well as two Dominican priest auditors."

I will have to ask Br. B if he is taking the course.

He also adds:
In addition, I am pleased to announce that the monthly celebration of the Dominican Rite Mass for the students of the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology (Arch and Vine Streets, Berkeley CA), shown in the photo to the left, will be continued this spring. This Mass was instituted in fall 2010 at the request of our lay students, and the strong attendance by both lay and religious students makes it likely that the number of celebrations will be increased to more than one a month. It has been offered by Fr. Anselm Ramelow, O.P., but we expect to add additional celebrants. I will announce the days and times when they are set. DSPT has been drawing large numbers of new lay students for the M.A. programs in both philosophy and theology and this is one of our responses to their spiritual needs.
That's the first I've heard of it; I'd like to go out to the DSPT despite the distance. It would be great if it were celebrated somewhere closer.

I just noticed that Fr. Augustine has this book out: Revival Preachers and Politics in Thirteenth Century Italy: The Great Devotion of 1233. Hmmm...
