Rev. Mr. Michael Malain, FSSP, was ordained to the transitional diaconate March 15, 2014 and will visit our parish the weekend of Aug. 23-24, serving as Deacon in a Solemn High Mass on Sunday, August 24, at 3:30pm. A reception will follow in Bishops Hall. Please extend a congratulations and a warm welcome to Rev. Mr. Malain.
A Solemn High Mass, according to the Roman Missal (1962) used in the Traditional Latin Mass, is a Mass sung by the priest and the schola; the difference is that there will be additional sacred ministers, a deacon, a sub-deacon, acolytes, a thurifer and many altar servers. Each of the sacred ministers has a particular role to play. There will be
programs to help the faithful pray the Mass. All are invited to join this
historical celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
