No 7am Latin Mass this Friday at St. Ann (Jan. 18)

Laudetur Iesus Christus! Just a heads up that due to the March for Life in Washington DC, the 7am Friday Latin Mass this Friday January 18 at St. Ann is canceled.

As routine, there will still be a 12:30 PM Low Mass at St. Mark parish in Huntersville on Friday.

Please consider offering your rosary intentions that day (or next Tuesday – the actual anniversary) for the end of the terrible scourge of abortion.

Epiphanytide update

Epiphany update

Laudetur Iesus Christus and Happy New Year!  Here are some updates for this week:

Vigil of Epiphany Mass (Saturday – January 5)

As custom, Fr. Barone will generously offer a special Solemn High Mass for Vigil of Epiphany, Saturday January 5 at 5:30 PM, with blessing of Epiphany water beforehand. Please see details below:

5:00 PM* – blessing of Epiphany Holy Water, chalk and salt (please bring any water, chalk and salt to the chapel no later than 4:45 PM). *The blessing will begin at 5pm prompt. Large containers of water are fine to bring.

5:30 PM – Solemn High Mass

Location: Charlotte Catholic High School chapel, 7702 Pineville-Matthews Road, Charlotte, NC 28226

FYI – Epiphany Water is a powerful sacramental and the blessing prayer contains an exorcism and the litany of the saints.  Epiphany chalk is a tradition where the head of household can mark the mantle of the door as part of the Epiphany home blessing. For more information please visit:
