Since March 2014, Holy Mass according to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite has been made available at Nativity BVM Church, in communion with the wishes of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, who issued a motu proprio “Summorum Pontificum” in 2007, which clarified the purpose and conditions for celebration of the Mass according to the Missal of Pope St. John XXIII.
The Tridentine Mass will continue to be celebrated on selected feast days as resources allow. Those interested in supporting the Latin Mass in Port Richmond through singing, playing of the organ, or serving at the altar should contact the rectory for more information.
Nativity BVM is pleased to share photos of Holy Mass celebrated in Port Richmond below:
