Dear friends of the Charlotte Latin Mass Community,
Please see the following update related to the snow and Epiphany wrap-up.
St. Mark Latin Mass rescheduled for next Sunday, Jan 15
Speaking of the snow, it has unfortunately forced the cancelation of the special Solemn High Orchestral Latin Mass at St. Mark parish scheduled for tomorrow Sunday January 8. The Mass has now been rescheduled for Sunday January 15th at 7pm. That’s the only cancellation we’re aware of. As always, please check the parish website for the most current Mass information.
We wanted to thank the 50 or so faithful who braved the weather to attend last night’s Epiphany Blessing and Low Mass. We also wanted to especially thank Fr. Barone for offering this special Mass, and blessing the water, salt, chalk, gold jewelry, frankincense, and myrrh. It may have also been the only actual Epiphany Mass offered in a parish yesterday. Please offer him a few Hail Mary’s today for him in thanksgiving.
The Catholic News & Herald also published a nice article about the Epiphany Vigil Latin Mass at Charlotte Catholic High School on Thursday. You can view it here:
Epiphany Blessing kits
The CLMC hopes to provide Epiphany kits with blessed chalk and holy salt possibly tomorrow or next Sunday (we’re not sure they’ll be ready). Once ready, the kits will also be in the St. Ann’s narthex during the week. The CLMC did arrange for extra supplies of Epiphany holy water to be in the St. Ann’s narthex. It’s in the regular silver holy water font while quantities last.
