NAC to offer training for usus antiquior

Fr Z is back in England today after a few days in Rome. He has a most interesting piece of news from his short stay: the Pontifical North American College will be training seminarians to celebrate Mass according to the missal of 1962.

The NAC benefited hugely from the rectorship of Mgr Tim Dolan whose book "Priests for the Third Millennium" is an excellent series of reflections for seminarians. As Fr Z comments, this new initiative will help rebuild the Church's identity by ensuring continuity with the Church's past and traditions.

To use an appropriate expression, the NAC is really blazing a trail here!
