40+ members remain, wishing to preserve the Latin Mass outside of diocesan structures, especially as an alternative IF the diocese, pray God not, should ever end the use of the Roman rite according to the "extraordinary form," aka the Tridentine Latin Mass, or Mass of All Times. To preserve a place of refuge that so far has continued since it started in 1970, in Tulsa.
Yawn, it's late, I better wrap this up....sooo to make a long story short an Email Letter was sent to Bishop Fellay, at their Headquarters in Switzerland, appealing this decision.
It basically describes the facts of the situation asking for:
a) a priest to still come to Tulsa or
b) to help their community keep some or all of their equity the families built up over the decades , to start over with a new church.
Before leaving Tulsa, the Society sold their church, and the understanding is the $$$ all does back to the SSPX!
Hopefully this fledgling group can get an answer, clarifying that last part about the $, and survive enough to keep growing.
3 new families have recently joined (total 6 children), and a 4th were just about to join (with 4 more kids).
I'll keep ya'll posted if the situation gets clarified.
