St. Mary’s Quasi Parish in Conshohocken will celebrate its opening Mass in the Extraordinary Form on Sunday, Sept. 9 at 11 a.m.
Father Carl Gismondi from the Fraternity of St. Peter, the newly appointed pastor of St. Mary’s, will preside over the liturgy.
All are welcome to attend the Mass, which marks the parish’s appointment as the home for the traditional Latin Mass in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
Earlier this year, Archbishop Chaput signed a decree approving the establishment of a quasi-parish at the location of the former St. Mary Parish in Conshohocken effective August 1, 2018.
The announcement was made in response to an interest for additional pastoral care for those wishing to participate in Divine Worship in the Extraordinary Form.
Prior to making his decision, the Archbishop obtained appropriate consultation from pastors of surrounding parishes, local priests who currently celebrate Mass in the Extraordinary Form, and the Council of Priests.
The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter provides clergy to serve St. Mary’s Quasi Parish, which is located at 140 W. Hector Street in Conshohocken.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
