About the event
The Collegium Institute for Catholic Thought & Culture, together with the Durandus Institute, welcome Gerhard Cardinal Müller--Prefect Emeritus of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith--to Philadelphia. His Eminence will celebrate a pontifical Mass (Ordinary Form) on the memorial of St. John Paul II, pope, at the Cathedral Basilica of Ss. Peter & Paul, where St. John Paul II celebrated Mass in 1979. Pope John Paul II was formally canonized in 2014. While St. John Paul II died on April 2, 2005, his feast falls on October 22: the date of his inauguration as pope in 1978.
A program of sacred music will be provided by the Cathedral Basilica's choir under the direction of Charlene Angelini.
