Just a few weeks ago I made a visit to this model parish located in North America (http://www.staugustine-holytrinity.org/), the Church of St. Augustine located in South St. Paul, Minn.
See here for Mass schedules: http://www.staugustine-holytrinity.org/schedules.aspx.
It's a fine parish with a fine pastor. In fact, he's the finest pastor. A holy guy, everybody loves him and he's just a really nice guy. Leadership is something he's good at. And he is pastor of two parishes; this parish is paired with another closest to it.
The Mass schedule? This pastor has an 11:30 a.m. Low Mass in the Usus Antiquior every Sunday morning at this parish. And the church is full? Yes. With whom? Families: moms, dads, kids, crying babies, singles, elderly, converts.
And between this parish and the other twin parish he offers the faithful M-F the possibility to worship in the Usus Antiquior.
Mission Accomplished? Yes, five star. Future? For sure. Long-term would even be nice to maybe see this as an FSSP parish.
Lots of good things happening.
Now the news just has to get reported. Go, blogs.
