Yesterday, All Souls Day, a 37th Anniversary Requiem Mass was celebrated for all Vilatte Guild members in New York, especially recalling Archbishop John Schneyder whose funeral was also in Jackson Heights. The Vilatte Guild liturgy was at St. Lucy’s Cathedral in Brooklyn at half past midday. The celebrants were Archbishop Louis Elias Milazzo, OCR, of the Old Roman Catholic Church and Archbishop Francis C. Spataro of the Apostolic Episcopal Church and Order of Antioch, who was the Founder of the Vilatte Guild in 1976. After the Mass there was a collation at Castro’s on Myrtle Ave.
We are especially grateful to St. Lucy for the successful cataract operation on Archbishop Spataro’s right eye at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital on 64th St. in NYC. We take this opportunity to wish all a very Happy Thanksgiving and Advent Season.
