From Henry in Knoxville:
Perhaps you will permit me to post video links to the liturgical celebrations for the dedication of Knoxville’s new cathedral today (Saturday, March 3).
Last (Friday) evening, First Vespers for the Dedication of a Church (from the commons in the Liturgy of the Hours) was celebrated in the presence of 3 cardinals, our bishop, and the apostolic nuncio; video here:
Chanted in Latin and English, with a Te Deum inserted near the end, following a deeply Catholic homily by Card. Rigali. The liturgy was chanted by the choir, but it sounded like many in the large congregation participated in alternating psalm verses between the two sides of the main aisle.
The Mass of Dedication at 12 noon today (Saturday) with 5 cardinals and 21 bishops present will be webcast live:
This video will subsequently be posted on the diocesan YouTube channel:
