Extraordinary Confirmation

A Solemn Pontifical Mass at the Faldstool was recently celebrated at the Cathedral of Saint Paul, Minnesota. This likely marks a first in 50 years!
Prior to Holy Mass, His Excellency, +Bishop Andrew Cozzens confirmed about 40 teenagers in the Extraordinary Form. The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter was present to assist. Nicholas Lemme directed the Schola from Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Denton, NE.  Deacon Ian Verrier directed the same seminary's polyphonic choir.  Lawrence Lawyer masterfully served as organist.

Many noted the natural fusion and exquisite beauty of Sacred art, architecture, and music in the sights, sounds, and liturgical grace.  Average age of those in attendance was between 35-45.
