Solemn Pontifical Mass at the faldstool in the Philippines!!!

Thanks to Mark Bunag for the photos.  He was the Masters of Ceremonies of the Solemn Pontifical High Mass in honor of St. Peter Canisius and celebrated by His Excellency ANTONIO R. TOBIAS, Bishop of Novaliches. The Mass was held in Seven Joys of Mary Chapel of the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate on April 27, 2010 at 10:30 am. The Mass was attended by the whole community of sisters, third orders of the FI, friends and benefactors and even those living within the neghborhood.  A blessed moment indeed!  Hope the TLM will have a regular home in the Diocese!
