SAMPLE LETTER TO BISHOP

September 15, 2007
Most Rev. Evan Thomas
Bishop of the Diocese of Illinois City
222 2nd Street
Illinois City, Illinois 22222

Your Excellency,
I am a member of the Blessed John XXIII Society of St. Christopher Parish. In keeping with the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI’s recent document Summorum Ponitficum, articles 5.1, 5.2, 7 and 10, I am writing to request that you have the Mass of Blessed John XXIII offered at St. Christopher Parish, or at a nearby parish. I have written to my pastor, Fr. Doe, twice in the past two months, but have received no reply. [OR I have written to my pastor, Fr. Doe, but he has declined to provide this Mass for us.] I request that this extraordinary form of the Mass be offered on Sundays, feast days, and week days. I would also like to request that you establish a personal parish or appoint a chaplain for the extraordinary form of the Mass. I know of a priest, Fr. Fred Johnson, who has said he is willing and able to offer this form of the Mass.
I realize that I have written to you 3 times in the past several years with this request, but in light of the recent motu proprio, I thought it appropriate to write again.
Thank you for your consideration
Yours in Christ,
Michael James


If you have written two letters to the bishop in two months and have received a negative reply, or have received no reply at all, the next step is to write to the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei.

At this level, it is extremely important to be part of a group.

Each person in the group should write a letter to Ecclesia Dei.

o Name your parish, your diocese, and the group to which you belong.

o Mention that you have already written twice to your pastor and twice to your bishop, and their replies (if any). If you made request for the Mass in previous years, mention that.

o Ask that your group be given a chaplain or a particular parish.

o Attach to this letter a copy of your letter to the bishop.

Do not send these individually. Rather, have one person write a cover letter, and include all the individual letters (with copy of the letter to the bishop attached to each) in one mailing.
If you have been given one Sunday Mass, but you have a group that would like a daily Mass, request a chaplain or a personal parish.
