How can I get a Traditional Latin Mass started in my parish?

In his document "Summorum Pontificum," Pope Benedict XVI decreed, "In parishes where a group of faithful attached to the previous liturgical tradition exists stably, let the pastor willingly accede to their requests for the celebration of the Holy Mass according to the rite of the Roman Missal published in 1962."

The best way to begin is to respectfully request it from your pastor and discuss the opportunity with other parishioners.  One should always be kind and charitable and rely on prayer.
