Ascension Week & Novena begins Wed.

Laudetur Iesus Christus! We have a busy week at St. Ann’s for the Latin Mass devotees.  In fact, we’ll have 3 consecutive days of Latin Masses.

  1. Wednesday: Vigil of the Ascension, 6pm:  As normal. Holy Hour from 5-6pm
  1. Thursday: Ascension Thursday 7pm (not a Holy Day of Obligation). There will be a Solemn High Mass for this glorious feast and will feature music by the Carolina Catholic Chorale and Orchestra who will sing Antonio Caldara’s Mass in A.  This will be a rare treat as Caldara’s music is not in print and is the first time it will be sung in centuries–right here at St. Ann’s (Thanks Father Reid!). The music was re-created by Carolina Catholic Chorale director Tom Savoy so please make an effort to attend – you won’t regret it!
  1. Friday: First Friday Latin Mass 7am: As normal.  Also to note, there will be a special Novus Ordo Mass, the St. Dominic Salvo altar boy Mass at 7pm as well. All are invited.

Novena Reminder: Lastly, just a reminder, the CLMC will begin its Rosary novena for full sacramental life (i.e. parish life) in the Extraordinary Form beginning this Wednesday May 4. Please consider joining us in praying to our new patron, St. Gregory the Great.
