Mass of All Ages in Northern Germany

Kiel/Hamburg (  Since the Motu Proprio "Summorum Pontificum" of Pope Benedict XVI. the "Old Masss" have been done quite a bit.   St. Mary the Queen in Bad Schwartau was already the first parish in the Archdiocese of Hamburg to have an additional service in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite in 2007.  It was followed by St. Joseph in Lubeck, St. Bonifatius in Kronshagen near Kiel as well as St. Joseph and St. Bruder Konrad in Hamburg.  Kiel and Hamburg are among the most recent Mass locations which will their anniversaries this coming January.

"2 Years of the Old Mass in Kiel" opened the event announcement on the website Alte Messe im Norden.  The opening of the celebration will be with a Holy Mass with the closing Blessing of the Three Kings (Epiphany) in the Usus Antioquior on the 5th of January in St. Bonifatius.  After Holy Mass, there is a luncheon planned where all present are invited.  Father Bernward Deneke (FSSP),  who arrives as celebrant, will give a lecture in the afternoon on "The Virtue of Fortitude".  His departure will include the Feast on January 6th with an Holy Mass, also according to the Vetus Ordo.

Only a week later, there will be the next anniversary event: "1 Year of the Old Mass in Hamburg-Osdorf",  is how the invitation reads on the 'Alte-Messe-Homepage' in the events column.  On the 13th of January 2013, the Feast of the Holy Family, a Levitical High Mass will take place in the church of St. Bruder Konrad.  At its conclusion there is an invitation to meeting after with coffee and cakes.  According to the official Diocesan Newspaper of Hamburg of the 15th of December 2011, Archbishop Dr. Werner Thissen has arranged the Sunday and Feast Day celebration of Holy Mass in the extraordinary form as an additional Mass offering in St. Bruder Konrad.

Happy Epiphany: Feliz Dia De Los Reyes

Edit: this is a feast especially for Monarchists. "They came from the east. The beginning of faith came from there, whence comes the day. Because faith is the light of souls." - Posted St. John Chrysostom.

Edit: It's happening all over Spain and part of the continuing Feast of Christmas.
