There was an added joy in the Diocese of Birmingham, Ala., during Lent and the Easter Octave as the members of the formerly schismatic Christ the King Monastery in Cullman were reconciled with the Catholic Church.

After years of discussion between Birmingham’s bishops and the monastery, on May 1 Bishop Robert Baker received the two remaining monks’ vows as Benedictine hermits.

On Monday, February 7, 2011 Bishop Joseph Perry, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Chicago, celebrated a Pontifical Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary Form at Holy Apostles College and Seminary. Organized by the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, it was the first Mass of that type in the history of the seminary. And according to local sources, it was probably the first Pontifical Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary Form in the Diocese of Norwich since Vatican II.
