If I am not mistaken, Archbishop Burke will be celebrating his final Mass in the La Crosse diocese within the next few days, with a brief going away gathering to follow.

If you remind me, I'll research and relate the actual number of those in attendance.

I would love to see four or five hundred thousand Catholics brave the cold to bid farewell to this man of God. :)

God Bless,

Okey, dokey.

This morning/afternoon at Mass (it was at noon), the schedule for Mass this week and next was announced at the Cathedral (I love that church). The official stuff:

Solemn Vespers, Sunday, January 25, 2004, 7:30 pm - all are invited.

Installation Mass, Monday, January 26, 2004 2 pm - all are invited. Reception (translation: mega party) to follow.

I'll probably go to vespers, but Mass might not be feasible. Anyway, it was also announced that all Masses on Friday will be moved to the St. Cecilia chapel in the crypt, so that all the lighting and cameras for the live broadcast can be installed. Eucharistic Adoration during the day next Saturday will not take place (this NEVER happens) all in preparation. What Father didn't say this morning was who was broadcasting this. I looked on the EWTN site and it's not scheduled. If I learn something locally, I will post it. I can't imagine that EWTN wouldn't carry it though.

Later, Des
