Fact: Missa Cantata for Annuciation at St. Ann's in Charlotte is Confirmed

It was confirmed in St. Ann's bulletin last week that there will be a Missa Cantata offered on Monday, March 26th for the transferred Feast of the Annunciation at 7pm.

I hope that there will be a good turnout to offer Fr. Reid, Servers, and Schola & Choir support for all the effort they do to bring these fonts of grace to us.

Fact: Seminarian to offer his first Mass after his Ordination as a Missa Solemnis

Gentle Readers...

In a couple of my past postings I have spoken glowingly, and full of hope for the number of orthodox seminarians in the Diocese of Charlotte... in faithful accord with the mens of the Holy Father.

One in particular I have mentioned was Jason Barone (now Deacon Barone)... and I am pleased to share this news that he has posted to his Facebook:
Greetings all. As many of you know, I'm in the final months of priestly formation and preparation. My bishop now plans to ordain me to the holy priesthood this June 2nd at St. Mark's Catholic Church in Huntersville, NC (just outside Charlotte) at 10am. My first Mass will take place the following day, Sunday June 3rd, at St. Ann's Catholic Church in Charlotte at 2:30pm. Receptions will follow both. Please save the date. I hope you can join me for this momentous weekend.
Those of you following my early posts will well notice that this timing aligns with the Missa Solemnis that we are expecting at St. Ann's... so my dear readers, it does not take much deduction to notice that his First Mass offered after his Ordination will be a Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary form!!

I hope that as many of you as possible can be there to support Deacon Barone... both at his Ordination, and for his First Mass!

Please continue praying for Deacon Barone and all of our seminaries as they continue their preparations and study for becoming ministers of Christ's Holy Church.
