Fact: Feast of the Ascension Missa Cantata at St. Ann's in Charlotte

Dear Readers,

Everything is all set for the Missa Cantata to be offered at St. Ann's in Charlotte for the Feast of the Ascension on Ascension Thursday, May 13 at 7:00pm. Priest, servers, and schola have all completed their final preparations.
I hope that you can all make it... it should be a beautiful, grace-filled Mass.

Ascendit Deus in jubilatione,et Dominus in voce tubae. Alleluia

My wife and I will be there, Mr Monaco, from Hillsbourogh NC.
We can't wait.

Do you know if there are plans to offer the Mass of all Time in the Cathedral in Charlotte anytime soon?
We look forward to seeing you
God bless

Drive safely... and God bless you both.

No new news on the Cathedral offering the Mass in the Extraordinary form, but for now it is unlikely since Fr. Reid is the only one in Charlotte who can off the EF Mass at this time...

We are just thankful that we do have it as regularly as we do at St. Ann's.

We went to the Mass, and it was incredible... the music was just heavenly!

I was moved to tears when during the chanting of the Credo I was surprised by a bust of incredible harmony on the "Ascended into Heaven" clause and then moved back to normal chant.

I have to confess, the only time I have ever heard that before was at the Vatican when at Christmas or Easter they will do that for the appropriate clause of the Credo... just indescribable!

What a blessing to have this here in Charlotte... we are truly blessed.

It was truly a sublime Mass!

After Mass all I heard were people talking about how "beautiful" how "reverent" how "peaceful" how "outstanding the music was"

We are truly blessed in Charlotte and St. Ann's to have a priest, schola and servers to be able to offer this Mass.

What an absolutely magnificent sacrifice to have offered to Almighty God!
Your schola is out of this world and Father Reid is a superb pastor!

You are so blessed to have him.

We can't wait for the next Missa Cantata.
God bless
