Voiceover: "This Mass is the very touchstone of Catholic tradition…. This recovery of the sacred is inextricably linked to the recovery of the Catholic faith as a faith that is living, that is joyful, that is beautiful, a faith that is a light in the deepening darkness of a world in thrall to the gray eminence…. How blessed is this parish to be at the very forefront of the return to Catholic tradition that is embedded in this Mass."
—Fr. Richard G. Cipolla, Assumption 2016
