Beginning Sunday, December 2nd, 2012 – the First Sunday in Advent – St. Joseph of Arimathea Society will be having Mass according to the Book of Divine Worship (also know as the “Anglican Use”) both this Sunday and all subsequent Sundays at 8 AM in Holy Rosary Parish. Our Chaplain and the parish’s administrator, Fr. Peter Marshall, will be officiating.
This addition to the Sunday schedule at Holy Rosary is being made along with time changes for the other Masses. The Ordinary Form, currently at noon, will move to the 9:30 slot and the Extraordinary Form will move to 11:30.
We are also making arrangements to provide music at our first Mass as well as all subsequent ones. Please, plan to join us on this joyous occasion.

From the parish web site of Holy Rosary Church:
Our Administrator, Father Michael W. Magiera, was, at one time, a priest of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, which has as its apostolate the spreading of the Extraordinary Form of Mass. (You can reach Father Magiera at 317-636-4478).
The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter no longer has an apostolate at Holy Rosary. Likewise, there is no separate “Latin Mass Community.” To be sure, the Extraordinary Form is celebrated six days a week at Holy Rosary, but, because of Holy Rosary’s uniqueness, its openness to the Extraordinary Form and because parishioners are parishioners, no matter what liturgical form they prefer, there is no community “distinction” with regard to liturgical expression.
