Dominican Rite Latin Mass tomorrow, Wed. April 18 at 6pm

Dear Friends of the Charlotte Latin Mass Community,

Laudetur Iesus Christus! A couple quick updates for this week…

Traditional Dominican Rite Latin Mass (Wednesday, April 18 at 6:00pm St. Ann parish): Following on the heals of the restoration of the Pre-1955 Easter Triduum celebrated last month, St. Ann’s will host the another ancient liturgy this coming Wednesday– that of the Traditional Dominican Rite Latin Mass.

Prior to the confusion that followed the Second Vatican Council, many of the more well established religious orders (Dominicans, Carmelites, Benedictines, etc.) had, with permission from Rome, created variations of the Latin Mass with collects, prayers, & feast days that were unique to their orders.

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 (in the Allen Center).  All are invited.


Liturgy & Fraternity After Fr. Snyder’s talk – 8:00pm (not 7:00pm): Due to the talk being given by Father Synder after the 6pm Mass, our monthly Liturgy & Fraternity mens group will be meeting an hour later than normal… or whenever the talk ends.

All men of good cheer are welcome.  We will be meeting up at a small pub about a half mile away from St. Ann’s called Sir Edmond Halley’s.  The pub also has a great food menu for those who want to order food.

From their website:  Inconveniently located in the back of the Park Road Shopping Center:

We paused Liturgy & Fraternity during Lent … so this will be our first event during Eastertide.
