Dear Friends of the Charlotte Latin Mass Community,

Just to follow up on the earlier announcement about a Latin Mass Class on Sacred Music, we decided to put together a Eventbrite site to better manage RSVPs.

The Event is free … the RSVP is just so we can plan for seating and food.

Mid-July update

Dear Friends of the Charlotte Latin Mass Community (CLMC),

Laudetur Iesus Christus! We have 3 events to update you on this week.

  1. Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel: This Saturday July 16 at 10am Saint Michael Catholic Church in Gastonia will be having a special Missa Cantata in honor of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.  St. Michael’s Pastor Father Buettner will also be enrolling people in the brown scapular who desire this special blessing.
  1. Liturgy & Fraternity: Next Wednesday July 20th, all men are invited to join us for Mass and fellowship after. We’ll attend the 6:00pm Latin Mass at St. Ann’s (5pm Holy Hour prior) and after Mass head over to Sir Edmond Hally’s pub for a drink or dinner. For questions, please contact us.
  1. Latin Mass Class – What is Sacred Music?

    St. Ann parish & the CLMC will host its second Latin Mass class series on Wednesday July 27 at 7pm in the St. Ann Allen Center Cafeteria (3635 Park Road, Charlotte).  This class will explain the role of Sacred Music in the Latin Mass and will be presented by Stefano Monaco, St. Ann’s choir member, with introduction by Pastor Fr. Timothy Reid.

    The presentation will answer many questions including: What is Sacred Music and how does it differ from religious music? How did Gregorian chant develop? What is the role of Sacred Music in the Sacrifice of the Mass?  Class will be preceded by 6pm Latin Mass in the church and a light dinner will be served by the Charlotte Latin Mass Community. Class is open to newcomers and regulars alike. While the event is free, an RSVP is greatly appreciated by July 25th. Please visit our contact page.
