The Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, USA

"The Latin Mass was replaced by Mass in English in most American churches but not at Regina Laudis.  The chant, too, was discarded by others, but Reverend Mother held fast that St. Benedict's edict "You will sing the Office" was at the heart of the foundation and must be kept.  Regina Laudis remains one of the few religious communities in the United States that sings the whole of the Mass and Divine Office in Latin."

-Mother Dolores Hart, O.S.B. (a.k.a. "the nun who kissed Elvis")
