Christus resurrexit! Blessed Eastertide greetings on this 2nd week of Easter. We have 2 updates to share with you today:
Easter Triduum Wrap up: Before we move on from Easter, we did want thank everyone who supported the liturgies and the surrounding events of both Lent, and Holy Week and most especially our heartfelt thanks goes to Fr. Barone and Fr. Matlak (and straw deacon Lee Benson) who devoted much precious time and prayer to this awesome liturgy (and Fr. Reid for St. Ann’s support). In your charity, please consider offering one of your Rosaries this week for them. We also have 2 follow ups to mention:

Dominican Rite Latin Mass – Wednesday April 18 at 6pm (St. Ann): In addition to the Easter Triduum last month, St. Ann will host another rare liturgy in the weeks ahead – that of the Dominican Rite “Latin” Mass. Before Vatican II, many of the religious orders (Dominicans, Carmelites, Benedictines, etc.) had their own version of the Traditional Latin Mass with slightly different prayers and ceremonies. While many of these beautiful Rite-specific Masses discontinued in the post conciliar period, you will have a rare opportunity to encounter this traditional Dominican Mass at St. Ann next week.
Fr. Raymund Synder, OP a Dominican priest who will offer this beautiful and ancient Latin Mass, and provide a talk afterwards on the divine indwelling of light according to St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Elizabeth of the Holy Trinity (presumably in the Allen Center). This is not a CLMC event but one worthy of support. All are invited to both Mass & the talk. Please come.
