The Tridentine Mass What is the Traditional Mass?
The Latin liturgy has always been known for its beauty, reverence, and mystery. Perhaps this explains why so many people are attracted to this form of worship. In fact, due to the increasing number of requests for the Mass, Pope John Paul II, in his recent letter Ecclesia Dei, encouraged the frequent celebration of the traditional Latin liturgy for those Catholics who desire it.

I am trying to find info on Nancy Purdy, born 1 Sep 1748 in Ireland, I don't know where. She married William Loghry born about 1743, from Ireland also. She died 1 Sep 1828 in Steuben County, New York. Any help would be appreciated. Janet
Maybe you can help end the weeks of research. I know the first relative to be born here in NY, US was Henry F. O'Connell, 2/1/1865, but his father was Daniel O'Connell, who was born in Ireland in December 1844. I believe he married Elizabeth Welch who was born in March 1845. I don't know where they lived (think Dublin), where they married, when and on what ship they came to the US on (sometime between 1844 and 1865) although I have read all passenger lists on the internet sites. Anything you can do to help would be appreciated. D. S.-
