Our Liturgical Apostolate

Our Liturgical Apostolate


Image 01

Since July 7th, 2009, the monks of Norcia have been responding to a new apostolate, given to us by the Holy See. In order to further a climate of liturgical peace and what the Pope calls an “interior reconciliation in the heart of the Church” we have been asked to make both the ordinary and extraordinary forms of the Roman rite available. This practice of offering both forms (in utroque usu) allows us the possibility to drink deeply from the riches of the tradition and, at the same time, to open our doors wide to the Church as she is today. For a schedule of Masses and times, please see the Basilica page.
