New to Latin Mass?

If you’re new to the Traditional Latin Mass we welcome you and encourage you to stay. You might be lost the first few times, but like many of us, you’ll become familiar after attending over many weeks.

Generally you may find it more beneficial to observe the Mass instead of using the translation booklets or missals until you become more familiar. You can fully participate by simply uniting your prayers with the priest offering to the Holy Sacrifice at the altar.

The Latin Mass also has many names which can be confusing. Its most commonly called the Traditional Latin Mass, but also the Latin Mass, the Tridentine Mass, the Mass of 1962, and more recently the Extraordinary Form of the Mass.

Most Sundays at St. Ann Catholic Church, you’ll find a few things before the 12:30pm Traditional Latin Mass:

  • Pro-Life Rosary: Occurs in the St. Ann chapel at 12pm.
  • Translation of the Propers for the week: Readings for that Sunday. These are yours to keep.
  • Chapel Veil basket:  In the narthex, we provide complimentary mantillas (Chapel Veils) and a booklet for the women and young ladies. They are yours to keep.
  • Latin Mass Q&A Table: The CLMC runs a Q&A table in the narthex before and after Mass to answer your questions about the Latin Mass. You can also sign up for our e-mail list there.
