Laudetur Iesu Christus! We have several updates to share with you this week:
Mass cancellations at St. Ann this week (May 20-26): Again this coming week there will be no St. Ann Latin Masses 6pm on Wednesday May 22 or 7am Friday May 24. As noted last week the 7am Wednesday Seminary Latin Mass is on hiatus until August.
St. John Vianney’s incorrupt heart at Cathedral this weekend May 25-26: Many Latin Mass attendees have a devotion to St. John Vianney – the patron of parish priests who offered countless hours of confessions weekly (much needed considering all the chaos and sin resulting from the French revolution). This Saturday evening, May 25, the Cathedral of St. Patrick & Knights of Columbus will host a relic of St. John Vianney’s incorrupt heart. One can venerate it from 5-5:30pm and again after the Saturday Vigil Mass 6:30pm – 9pm. For the full veneration schedule on Sunday May 26 please see the flyer: https://www.stpatricks.org/media/1/7/vianneyrelic.jpg
Latin Mass & 40 Hours devotion – next week there will be 2 opportunities (back to back) to attend a Solemn High Mass, and to participate in the 40 Hours devotion:
Ascension Thursday May 30: 7pm, Annual Solemn High Orchestral Mass at St. Ann with the Carolina Catholic Chorale and orchestra. Along with the chants, sacred music will be the beautiful MASS in G of Franz Schubert. Immediately after Mass, St. Ann will begin its annual 40 Hours devotion of Eucharistic Adoration ending 3pm Saturday June 1. Please consider adopting an hour by signing up in the St. Ann narthex.
Friday May 31 – Feast of the Queenship of Mary: 7pm Solemn High Mass, Cathedral of St. Patrick. The Cathedral is also organizing a special 40 Hours devotion surrounding this Mass (1pm May 30 – ends 8am June 1), to pray to prevent the opening of the new Planned Parenthood abortion facility nearby. To sign up for an hour please visit: https://stpatricks.org/forty-hours
June 11 Padre Pio Latin Mass & June 15 Respect Life Latin Mass: Please see last week’s update: https://charlottelatinmass.org/2019/05/13/eastertide-update-3/
