FYI: St. Ann’s will celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation with Traditional Latin Mass (Low) tomorrow Saturday March 25th at 9am.
Laudetur Iesus Christus! We are nearly halfway through Lent, and it serves as a good reminder to promote our first diocesan Traditional Latin Easter Triduum (Holy Week), hosted by St. Ann’s at Charlotte Catholic High School. These liturgies are being generously offered by St. Ann’s for the Latin Mass faithful – please try to attend some or all of them (we’d like this to be annual!).
- Holy Thursday April 13, Mass (High) 7pm
- Good Friday April 14, Mass of the Presanctified, 3pm
- Holy Saturday, Easter Vigil (High), 8pm (Light reception to follow)
All liturgies will offered by Father Barone at Charlotte Catholic High School Chapel, 7702 Pinesville-Matthews Road, Charlotte NC.
Lastly, in preparation for the Triduum, we share with you a picture of the “tradification” of the Charlotte Catholic High School chapel – altar rails were just installed last week. The free-standing altar will be relocated for the Triduum and a temporary traditional altar will be established — a modest “brick-by-brick approach” toward restoring tradition in this corner of the world.
Laudetur Iesus Christus! We thank everyone who attended Fr. Joseph’s mission this week and found his talks spiritually efficacious. If you missed any of his talks, they should be posted on St. Ann’s website soon – we’ll let you know when that occurs.
St. Gregory the Great’s Feast Celebration – this Sunday 12:30pm. St. Ann’s and the CLMC will celebrate our patronal feast day with a musical themed celebration. During Mass, the Cantate Domino Latin Choir will offer beautiful Gregorian chants to honor St. Gregory and the music he codified. After High Mass we will venerate his relics and have a modest celebration with musical themed treats. Please invite a friend – it will be a beautiful celebration. Also – thank you for everyone who continues to pray our novena to St. Gregory!
Daylight Savings Time reminder – this Sunday: Don’t forget this Sunday is daylight savings time and to spring forward your clocks.
