Traditional Rite of Episcopal Consecration

On 30 November 1993 the Rev. Daniel L. Dolan, a Catholic priest who had been active for many years in the traditional movement in U.S., was consecrated a bishop in St. Gertrude the Great Church, Cincinnati, Ohio.

The three-hour long ceremony followed the pre-Vatican II Roman Pontifical, and took place during the course of a Solemn Pontifical Mass celebrated in the traditional Latin rite.

The original video of this historic ceremony was professionally edited and produced, and we are happy to make it available here in DVD format.

It includes an accompanying commentary explaining the symbolism of these ancient and mystic rites.

This DVD will be of interest not only to traditional Catholics, but also to students of the Catholic liturgy who can witness here one of the most complex and impressive ceremonies of the Catholic Church.
