High Mass for Feast of Epiphany

January 4th, 2016, Promulgated by Ludwig

More exciting news from our friends at the Fellowship of St. Alban:

We’ve been happy to welcome Fr. Jason Catania to Rochester as our regular priest. Please make him feel welcome as he gets to know Rochester as a resident.

This week, we will celebrate High Mass with music for the feast of Epiphany. The mass will be held on the day, Wednesday, January 6, at 6pm at Good Shepherd in Henrietta. I believe that we are the only ones around observing the feast on Wednesday, so it is a good chance to invite friends to keep the feast with us.

Details of the order of service are given on our website

All are encouraged to join the Fellowship for this beautiful mass, and to give Father Catania a warm welcome.

The usual reminder: the Fellowship of St. Alban is the local group of Catholics belonging to the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, and is in full communion with Rome.

All Catholics are always able to attend an Ordinariate mass. It does satisfy a Catholic’s Sunday obligation.

    This is wonderful news and I am looking forward to attending. A High Mass and on the actual Feast! Yes! Fr. Catania preached at the High (Latin) Mass at St. Thomas the Apostle on Sunday, and it was a beautiful tribute on the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus, to the Lord’s being the Way, the only path, to the Father. Then he assisted with our Communion at the altar rail and then joined us for the coffee hour. People were delighted to meet Father Catania, and I expect that a number of us at the Latin Mass will also attend the Epiphany Mass mentioned above.

    Lived up to all expectations! Plus we received the traditional blessed chalk to mark over our doorways. 20+C+M+B+16 for 2016 and for the names we use for the 3 Magi: Casper, Melchior, and Balthasar (CMB also stands for Christus Mansionem Benedicat: “May Christ Bless this House.”) And the prayer to accompany the marking was included. It has been DECADES since I was reminded of this practice.

    I agree, the High Mass for Epiphany held on the traditional date for Epiphany, January 6th, lived up to all expectations! It was a blessed and joyful privilege to have Fr. Catania celebrate this holy feast day with us. It was also a joy and blessing to have all the acolytes, our organist and cantor with us, and the number of people present in the congregation singing and worshiping in the pews.
