Dedication of FSSP Seminary Chapel

There is going to be a major event covered by EWTN tomorrow in its entirety. Beginning at 10 AM central time, the Dedication of the Seminary Chapel of the FSSP in Denton, Nebraska will be broadcasted live. Total coverage will be 5 hours, including the dedication and Solemn High Mass offered "in the presence of a greater prelate". This kind of ceremony is only foreseen by the rubrics of the Extraordinary Form when the Ordinary (bishop) of a Diocese attends the Mass from the throne or when a Cardinal is present. It is rare today, as one can imagine, but we will witness it on these shores with a Cardinal for what I believe is the first time since the liturgical reform. I believe the Holy Mass itself will begin around 1 PM central time.
