A Parish That +Gregory Wishes to Destroy

 Here is an excellent article on RORATE CAELI about St. Mary's in Chinatown (Washington DC).

Wilton Cardinal Gregory is preparing to announce that every traditional Latin Mass in the Archdiocese of Washington will be suppressed. This includes seven public Masses at archdiocesan parishes each Sunday, numerous holy day and weekday TLMs and several parishes that offer private Masses. All told there are about 20 priests residing in the archdiocese that offer the traditional Latin Mass. A non-parish location, such as the Franciscan Monastery, would be used for a merged traditional ghetto to replace all of the other TLMs.

Of the parishes in the Archdiocese of Washington that offer public traditional Latin Masses, three or four of those churches have more Catholics who attend the TLM than the novus ordo. They will die, sadly, including Saint Mary Mother of God church, which was one of the first parishes in the U.S. to offer the traditional Latin Mass during John Paul II's limited indults.
