Ryan Grant lecture online and Easter Triduum update

Laudetur Iesus Christus! We thank everyone for attending Fr. Barone’s talk on Sunday and hope you found it edifying as you prepare for Holy Week. Please offer some prayers for Father to thank him for his time.  Also we wanted to thank everyone who shared food and helped set up.

No recording was done Sunday but you can view the PowerPoint slide here: https://charlottelatinmass.files.wordpress.com/2018/03/holy-land-passion-of-christ-reflection.pdf

  1. Ryan Grant talk now available at CLMC website: Speaking of talks, the video/audio from Ryan Grant’s talk back in January is now available. We unfortunately had a glitch and missed a 30 minute segment but are still hoping to obtain an audio copy of that missing segment. In the interim we do have Parts I and III (both 1 hour each) to share with you:


  1. Tenebrae Liturgy at St. Ann this Friday 7pm: As a reminder St. Ann will offer its annual Tenebrae liturgy at 7pm this Friday March 23. The liturgy is the chanting of the Holy Week Divine Office. The parish moved it up a week to accommodate the musicians. As Fr. notes in the bulletin, it’s a beautiful and prayerful liturgy.
  1. Traditional Holy Week/Easter Triduum schedule:
  • Palm Sunday: 9:00 AM Low Mass* (CCHS); 12:30 PM High Mass (St. Ann) with Traditional Blessing of Palms
  • Holy Thursday March 29: 7:00 PM Mass of the Last Supper (CCHS)
  • Good Friday March 30: 12 noon Stations of the Cross; Confessions after Stations until 2:30 PM; 3:00 PM Mass of the Presanctified

*Palm Sunday note: The 9am Low Mass will not feature a blessing of palms. Fr. will bring blessed palms from the Novus Ordo Masses in case anyone needs them. The Traditional blessing of Palms will only be at the 12:30 PM High Mass at St. Ann.

  1. Additional Events: Looking ahead we have some additional events/notes to share below:
