Confirmation According to the 1961/62 Pontifical

His Excellency, David Choby, Bishop of Nashville, has agreed in principle (my phrase, not His Excellency’s) to confer the sacrament of confirmation in the Extraordinary Form, that is, pursuant to the rite found in the 1961–62 Pontificale Romanum.

The Church of the Assumption has published a letter from Fr. William Fitzgerald, O. Praem., on the topic. The letter is available here.

In short, there needs to be a critical mass of confirmandi to make the celebration logistically feasible. Please direct expressions of interest to Fr. William at fr.william[at]assumptionchurchnashville[dot]org, copying Mrs. Rost at jrost[at]assumptionchurchnashville[dot]org, pursuant to the linked letter.

Many thanks to His Excellency for his generosity.
