Musical tradition continues despite cloudy future for Detroit's Assumption Grotto

Catholic World News - December 28, 2011

Father Eduard Perrone continues a tradition of beautiful music at the Assumption Grotto, a beloved church in the Detroit archdiocese, with a new Mass that he composed himself.

The first performances of Father Perrone's Mass come soon after the revelation that Assumption Grotto is among the parishes that could soon be closed.

    God bless Father Perrone. Though likely that I won't see this parish in my life, I would be very sad to see it closed by the diocese. Am praying that it be kept open, and as I understand finaces are the stated reason for the closure, I donated some money to Assumption Grotto here http://assumptiongrotto.com/

    Assumption Grotto is an excellent--and unique--parish. The Archdiocese of Detroit would be making a mistake by closing it.
