Latin Mass at St. Victor Parish this Friday, May 1, 2009

Thanks to commenter Mark for the news that there will be a Latin Solemn High Mass at St. Victor Church in West Hollywood this Friday, May 1, at 8 p.m., with Gregorian Chant and Sacred Polyphony.

An announcement I've seen says that the Norbertine Fathers of St. Michael's Abbey will be in charge and Fr. Darrin Merlino, C.M.F., of the Hollywood Project will be the guest homilist.

In conjunction, but I don't know at what time, the First Friday Holy Spirit in the Media group will have Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, a Rosary and the Litany of the Holy Spirit.

There will be a reception in the parish hall afterwards.

Una Voce is involved in the Mass. Also involved are Open Call, St. Charles Borromeo's Catholics in Entertainment, Catholic Underground, Bibles and Brew and Act One.

Catholics in the entertainment industry will be at the Mass, but the sponsors emphasize that the Mass is for everyone.

St. Victor Parish is at 8634 Holloway Drive, West Hollywood. (310) 652-6477.

This is the extent of my knowledge about the Mass and the overall event.

By the way, I did a post about St. Victor Parish itself on this blogspot on September 10, 2006, and quite a few people added comments.

I wonder when they're going to have an extraordinary use Mass there.

I just got back from St. Victor's. The Mass was ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL! The priest, deacon, and subdeacon (thank you Norbertines!) did a magnificent job offering St. Victor's first Solemn High Mass in who-knows-how-long-since-when! The choir was professional and sang ever so gloriously. Many people were there; the church was packed with old and young & avid TLM'ers and rookies. I would just like to say that tonight's Solemn High Mass was perhaps one of the most beautiful Mass I have ever assisted in. God truly blessed all of us there! Many people were at loss with words when trying to describe what was experienced there. I'm still feeling the graces from the Mass as I type this up! May there be MORE Solemn High Masses in L.A.!!

Dear Mark,

Thank you VERY MUCH for your exciting and thorough first-person account of the Latin Extraordinary Form Mass at St. Victor on May 1.

Congrats and thanks to everyone involved. It's wonderful that so many people attended, too.

Wow! I second the motion when you say, "May there be MORE Solemn High Masses in L.A!!"
