Monday, November 14th, New York City — Led by our esteemed Vice Chancellor Patrick O'Boyle my confratelli and I had the great privilege of serving as honor guard at the missa cantata votive Mass for Our Lady of Ransom and conclusion of the Extraordinary Year of Mercy with celebrant Fr. Leonard Villa at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan. Sponsored by the Regina Caeli (#423) and Agnus Dei (#12361) Councils of the Knights of Columbus, Fr. Stephen Saffron, Parochial Vicar at St. Anselm Church in Brooklyn and Chaplain of the Regina Caeli Council, was the homilist. The first Latin Mass celebrated at the Cathedral in almost twenty years, there were easily a thousand faithful in attendance.
