Christus resurrexit! Alleluia! Happy Eastertide blessings in this Octave of Easter; we hope you and your family had a blessed Easter. Here is what is happening over the next week and beyond:
- First Friday Mass Tomorrow:Fr. Reid will offer a Latin Mass at 7am tomorrow April 1st.
- Monday April 4: Latin Masses for the Feast of the Annunciation – we are very blessed to have 2 competing Latin Masses for the transferred feast of the Annunciation. Fr. Buettner will offer a high Mass at St. Michael’s in Gastonia at 7pm. However, Fr. Reid has announced that St. Ann will host a Solemn High Mass at 7pm offered by Fr. Santiago Mariani (Parochial Vicar, Our Lady of Lourdes in Monroe), with Fr. Benjamin Roberts (Pastor at Our Lady of Lourdes) as guest homilist. With those 2 Masses occurring, the only thing missing that evening in Charlotte might be a Pontifical High Mass (St. Thomas Aquinas parish – care to offer one?) *just kidding, sort of* 🙂
- Latin Mass Class April 13th: Don’t forget Fr. Reid’s Latin Mass class is coming up quickly. He will be teaching a Latin Mass Introduction class for all parishioners on Wednesday April 13th at 7pm in the Allen Center cafeteria. It will be preceded by the regular Low Mass at 6pm and a light dinner will be served by the Charlotte Latin Mass Community. The class is open to newcomers and regulars alike and will cover topics such as the role of the priest during the Mass, the different parts of the Mass, and its symbolism. While the event is free, an RSVP is greatly appreciated by April 12th.
