Fact: Two more Missae Cantatae to be held at St. Ann's!!

After just having a Missa Cantata for the Feast of the Annunciation on March 25, word from St. Ann's in Charlotte, lead by Fr. Reid, will be offering two more upcoming Missae Cantatae:

Ascension Thursday


Saturday, August 7
XI Sunday after Pentecost (anticipated)

The Ascension Thursday Mass is a second consecutive year that Fr. Reid has offered a Missa Cantata for the Feast of Our Lord's Ascension on the actual feast day.

The August 7 Mass is the regular monthly "Sunday anticipated" Mass, but with chant from the participants of the "Sing Like a Catholic" chant workshop to be held in Charlotte, also at St. Ann's on August 6-7.

I encourage you to share this information with as many as possible. They should be wonderful liturgies. Feedback from those who attended the Annunciation Mass on March 25 has been quite extraordinary. The musical assistance of the schola and choir of St. Ann's at the Mass has been highly complimented as adding awesome beauty and reverence to the Mass.

Wonderful news!
Is it confirmed 100% that there will be an Ascension Thursday Missa Contata?

I can tell you both servers and schola are in full preparation for a Missa Cantata for Ascension Thursday.

It is so sad to me that you must travel so far to assist in this wonderful sacrifice of the Mass, but we are so pleased for your support of our efforts at St. Ann's.

Keep an eye on the this site, I try to keep it up to date if anything should change. I will pray for your safe travels.

Please keep Fr. Reid, the servers, schola, and choir in your prayers as they continue their preparations of this Mass.

God Bless

Please pray that the Greensboro area gets a beautiful schola and regular offerings of Missa Cantata soon.
God bless you.
