Latin Mass for Prisoners


The following story has been reported in New Liturgical Movement, where a more detailed account can be found.

It seems that Archbishop Cordilione of San Francisco, along with the Benedict XVI Institute for Sacred Music and Divine Worship, visited the San Quintin State Prison for an evening of Music and Meditation.  Apparently the event, which included both polyphony and plainsong, was well attended and and enjoyed by the inmates, to the extent that 25 of the inmates, presumably with the approval of the prison authorities, decided to form their own schola.  Members of the Institute returned to provide tuition, and the schola has progressed to the extent that it is able to sing at Mass competently.

The sequel is that there is to be a Sung Mass in the prison later this month, and that this is intended to be the first of a series.
