Laudetur Iesus Christus! Thanks to everyone who attended the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on Sunday – it was a beautiful way to honor Our Lady on our nation’s patronal feast day.
Here are some schedule updates this week:
Seminary 7am Wednesday Latin Masses are on Christmas hiatus: The 7am Wednesday Latin Mass offered by the Seminary priests at St. Ann are canceled beginning this week until January 15 due to the Christmas break.
Rorate Mass at St. Ann this Saturday 6:30 AM: Some of you may have attended the Rorate Mass at St. Thomas Aquinas, or at St. John the Baptist in Tryon this past weekend. This week we have another opportunity as St. Ann will host their annual Rorate Mass at 6:30 AM. If you haven’t attended one before – you will want to attend. It’s a candlelight Mass at dawn that symbolizes the coming of the Light of the World, Christ in the Incarnation, while honoring the purity of His Blessed Mother. To learn more please visit:
Here are the remaining Rorate Masses:
- Friday December 13: St. Elizabeth in Boone, 6:30 AM (2 hours northwest of Charlotte)
- Saturday December 14: St. Ann in Charlotte, 6:30 AM
- Saturday December 21: Holy Cross, Kernersville, NC 6:00 AM (2 hours north of Charlotte)
Annual Blessing of Religious Objects & Gifts – Sunday December 22nd (after St. Ann 12:30pm Latin Mass): We are pleased to share that Fr. Reid has graciously agreed to bless your religious items and gifts after the 12:30pm Mass on Sunday December 22nd. As you may recall, in years past we were able to host a blessing right before Christmas, and are picking up this tradition again (God willing). We will provide instructions next week but all items should be in the narthex prior to Mass as Fr. will bless them immediately afterwards.
