Last night I attended a free Latin class offered at St. Paul’s parish on 59th St. and Columbus Ave. in NYC.
The class meets Wednesday evenings from 7-9 PM at 405 W 59th St. (parish center) for 10 consecuitve weeks in the fall (starting now) and ten more weeks (start date TBD).
It looks very promising and all are welcome. There is no required work or exams. About 60 people attended last night’s session.
The teacher is a classics PhD student at Fordham and a parishoner at the Church, and appears very enthusiastic. It will focus on Ecclesiatical (i.e. Church Latin). Each session will have 1:30 on Latin and then 30 minutes on Liturgical topics (prayers, hymns, the Mass, etc.).
Next Wed., 24 September, the class will conclude with the Ordinary Form of the Mass in Latin.
Here’s the teacher’s web-site for more info.
