Christmas Day service

Our group has been kindly offered a church for Christmas Day.  We will celebrate mass Christmas Day at 11:30 AM at St. Bridget's church in Bloomfield, NY.  Directions can be found here.  Many thanks go to Fr. Peter Motolla for helping to organize a beautiful home for us on Christmas Day.  Fr. Motolla was already in our good graces for citing Dom Gregory Dix at his first (Traditional Latin solemn high) mass following ordination.
