Grapevine: TLM to be offered at Charlotte Cathedral?

As with all the "Grapevine" posts, there is nothing formal or official with which to link or reference directly, but there are stong currents from different sources that lead some to believe that in the not too distant future, the Mass in the Extraordinary Form may be offered at the Charlotte Cathedral on a regular basis.

Giving the rumor some objective creedence is that fact that Father Roux, the new Rector of the Cathedral, was most recently a Priest-in-Residence at St. Ann's parish, and was a supporter of Fr. Reid's efforts in offering the TLM there at St. Ann's. In addition, Fr. Roux himself offered the Mass in the Extraordianary Form on this last weekend at St. Ann's.

Couple this with the changes seen by Charlie in the orientation going on at the Cathedral since his arrival, one can easily see how this could be a definate possibility in the future. The key as always, dear Readers, is to be patient, for little by little things are changing!! If anyone has information that could confirm or deny this posting, please let me know.

Please pray for patience... and for more holy priests and vocations!

I really do believe the day is coming when we'll see the Extraordinary Form restored to St. Patrick's Cathedral - but like you say, it will require a degree patience on our part.
