A few announcements to our readers:

Truly wonderful news from the Province of St. Joseph (Eastern United States).  They are in the process of publishing the Hymnarium O.P., a collection of traditional Dominican Hymns from the Divine Office.  This looks like a magnificent project, which is nearing completion.  The Latin texts are taken from the 1952 Breviarium iuxta ritum sacri ordinis praedicatorum and the English texts are from the 1967 English translation of the 1962 Breviarium iuxta ritum sacri ordinis praedicatorum.  The Province has set up a website here, where you can find more information about the forthcoming edition, as well as audio samples of the hymns being chanted.

Also, for anyone who is in the vicinity of the Church of St. Vincent Ferrer in NYC, the Master General of the Order of Preachers, Fr. Bruno Cadore, O.P., will be offering the 10:30 AM Mass on Saturday, October 5, 2013 for the Feast of Bl. Raymond of Capua.  The Mass will be in the Ordinary Form.

Lastly, for those on the West Coast of the United States, Fr. Augustine Thompson, O.P. of the Dominican Liturgy Blog has posted Mass times for Dominican Rite Masses in the Western Province. They can be found here.
