Regular Mass schedule resumes after Hurricane Irma
Thursday, September 14

Sacred Heart Traditional Catholic Church is completely free of damage from Major Hurricane Irma, with thanks to God and Our Blessed Mother.  Although electric power had yet to be restored as of early afternoon Tuesday, the regularly scheduled Masses will be celebrated “with or without power” [] [],  according to a brief announcement from its pastor: the Most Rev. Louis Montelongo. In a follow-up message, he indicated that the regularly scheduled weekday (i.e., Tuesday through Saturday) Masses have already been resumed.

The official Orange-County curfew, which was in effect from this past Sunday 7 p.m., through this past Monday at 6 p.m., has already expired, so there are now no legal barriers for travel within the county in which Sacred Heart TCC is situated.
[Note : Relying exclusively on illumination from candles?  What a concept!  But having written that, this webmaster urges great caution in their use in homes during prolonged loss of electric power, especially by residents of multifamily dwellings.

Note : The Orlando news-talk station at FM 96.5 MHz. reported (as recently as Wednesday, September 13):
  • the Orlando Utilities Commission, which supplies electric power & water to SHTCC, announced that the utilities services to all its customers will be restored by Friday, September 15, at 10 p.m.  It might be most realistic to regard that announcement as a goal, not a guarantee.
  • the (notoriously high) highway tolls that were discontinued in Florida before the arrival of Hurricane Irma, remain “discontinued until further notice“ (repeated as recently as Friday, September 15) (but  this webmaster warns that he and SHTCC must rely on public sources for such news, are at the mercy of their editorial decisions and their news cycles, and do not monitor or review those sources on any consistent basis; so neither he nor SHTCC can take responsibility for any consequences of being unprepared to pay tolls after entering toll roads for travel to Masses or devotions ).]
