St. Gregory Foundation for Latin Liturgy
Established in September 1989, the St. Gregory Foundation for Latin Liturgy seeks to promote within the Church in the United States the use of the Latin language in the Mass of Pope Paul VI, according to the teachings of the Second Vatican Council, in order to encourage the faithful to appreciate the unique theological, pastoral and spiritual qualities of the Latin Mass.
Toward this end, the Foundation is devoted to the use of the great patrimony of sacred music as envisioned by Sacrosanctum Concilium and to the preservation of the liturgical tradition of the Latin Rite as codified in the Missale Romanum of 1970.
