Traditional Latin Mass in Maryland - New Blog Feature: Special Events Calendar

For some time, I've wondered how to integrate a calendar into this blog that would be of use for Special Events or non-recurring events. Usus Antiquior or Tridentine Masses scheduled weekly can be assembled in a menu (SEE RIGHT MENU NAVBAR, for example) and linked to Parish websites. However, what of the occasional special Mass, colloquium or musical event? So many of these are missed when posted here unless someone knows of it in advance.

The New Liturgical Movement has found a solution using a calendar embedded into their blog page. Events are self-reported and require approval by the moderator. This is a huge blog, however, affiliated with the CMAA, receives millions of "hits" and handles international events. So, the local may be lost in the shuffle.

In the header to this blog, you will now see the following:

Special Event Usus Antiquior Calendar for MD, DC, VA, DE, PA and WV (opens New Window)

This calendar is one I've created for TLM events in the area covered by this blog and for "special events" (such as the Missa Cantata at Saint Bernadette's held yesterday). The calendar opens in a new window, is self-reporting and requires approval before the event is made public.

I hope this draws interest and furthers the clearinghouse function of this blog on the Usus Antiquior or in musical events or colloquia we all love so dearly. Please be sure the event is open to the public!
