His second talk will be on Sunday 22 June after Vespers (2:30 p.m.) at the Church of the Holy Innocents on West 37th Street, between Broadway and 7th Avenue.  This is a marvelous opportunity to hear and meet this eminent liturgical scholar and supporter of the Traditional Roman Mass.

The Fortnight for Freedom: Freedom to Serve will take place from June 21 to July 4, 2014, a time when our liturgical calendar celebrates a series of great martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political power—St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher, St. John the Baptist, SS.
