Laudetur Iesus Christus! We are now into the 2nd part of the Christmas season: Epiphanytide. This important season begins on Epiphany and normally lasts until February 2nd, the Feast of the Purification (Candlemas). This season commemorates the Epiphany, Baptism, and first miracle (Cana) of Our Blessed Lord. You can learn more here: https://www.fisheaters.com/customstimeafterepiphany1.html
If you are sad that Christmas was discarded by the secular society on December 26, don’t be – Christmas continues at Traditional Latin Mass for a few more weeks – so please join us on Sunday Latin Mass (St. Ann parish -12:30pm) as Christmas continues!
Feast of the Holy Family – Sunday January 12: This Sunday is the Feast of the Holy Family in the traditional calendar and is normally celebrated the Sunday after Epiphany. It’s also a wonderful way to honor the father of the Holy Family, St. Joseph, in the year of St. Joseph. This will be the first St. joseph feast day to celebrate in the Year of St. Joseph. Mass will be at the normal time of Sunday 12:30pm at St. Ann parish. You can learn more about the devotion to the Holy Family here: https://www.fisheaters.com/customstimeafterepiphany1a.html

St. John the Baptist in Tryon, NC – Feast of the Holy Family Masses: In addition to St. Ann’s regular 12:30pm Latin Mass this Sunday, we would be remiss if we did not mention that St. John the Baptist in Tryon (2 hours west of Charlotte) will also be celebrating the Feast of the Holy Family Sunday January 12 – in a very special way, with two back-to-back Solemn High Orchestral Latin Masses at 11:00 AM and 12:30 PM. For more information please see their bulletin:
Also note – St. John the Baptist’s regular 8:30 AM Sunday Latin Mass will be a Novus Ordo Mass on January 12 due to the schedule change above.
