Fact: Missa Solemnis for Palm Sunday & Missa Cantata for Easter

Gentle Readers,

More great news from St. Ann's in Charlotte.  Today Fr. Reid announced that next week's 12.30pm Palm Sunday Mass will be a Missa Solemnis, with 3 clerics chanting the Passion Gospel.

In addition, he said that Easter will be a Missa Cantata.  How lucky we are here in Charlotte!

One piece of disappointing news was that today Mass was not as well attended as the past two weeks.  Hopefully this is not a trend, but an anomaly, and that the attendance will return to its prior numbers, or more, during Easter and beyond.

Please continuing to pray for all those who make all this Missae possible... most especially Fr. Reid, the Altar Servers, and the Musicians.
