Dear friends of the Charlotte Latin Mass Community (CLMC),
Laudetur Iesus Christus! We have a few updates for the next few weeks:
- Feast of St. Joseph Saturday March 19th: St. Thomas Aquinas parish is hosting a Solemn High Mass at 8am Saturday for the Feast of St. Joseph on Saturday March 19th. It will also coincide with a special announcement regarding the new diocesan seminary.
- Easter Triduum: Regretfully there won’t be an Easter Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday) in the Extraordinary Form this year (we did ask) – as you can expect priests have a difficult schedule next week. There will be Easter Sunday Latin Mass at St. Ann’s regular time of 12:30pm. As you offer your penances and sacrifices during Holy Week, please do pray that in future years the faithful will have the option for the Triduum in the Extraordinary Form. If you are eager to drive, there is an Extraordinary Form Triduum being offered at Sacred Heart parish Dunn, NC this year (40 minutes south of Raleigh).
- April 4 – Feast of the Annunciation (transferred). Fr. Buettner will be offering a Latin Mass for the Feast of the Annunciation at St. Michael parish in Gastonia (I believe the time is 7pm but will confirm). This feast which normally occurs on March 25th is being transferred because this year it falls on Good Friday.
