Laudetur Iesus Christus! Today is the feast of the Holy Name of Mary and we have a few event updates to share:
September 12 – Feast of the Holy Name of Mary: The feast is an important day in Church history as Catholics won two victories under the mantle of the Blessed Mother’s name. Sensus Fidelium has an excerpt on the day: https://sensusfidelium.us/the-liturgical-year-dom-prosper-gueranger/september/september-12-fifth-day-within-the-octave-of-the-nativity/
Feast of the Holy Cross – Saturday September 14: This Saturday is the feast of the Holy Cross, commemorating when St. Helena discovered the True Cross. While there are no Latin Masses on this day in Charlotte metro (there are in Tryon), St. Ann in Charlotte will expose a relic of the True Cross from 9:00am – 4:15pm Saturday. Please drop by if you can.
Annual Latin Mass “Homecoming” – Sunday September 22nd, 12:30pm St. Ann: The CLMC will be hosting its annual event to welcome home newcomers to the Latin Mass. This is an annual ‘welcoming’ to the Eucharistic Congress attendees we met at our booth. Please join us for coffee afterward and greet any newcomers who may be attending their 1st Latin Mass.
Feast of St. Michael the Archangel, Sunday September 29, 12:30pm, St. Ann: After 12:30pm Latin Mass, we will be venerating a relic of St. Michael the Archangel (yes a relic). St. Michael appeared in a cave in Italy in the 5th century and sanctified it, and as such the rocks are considered relics. The feast day commemorates the Basilica built on this cave.
