Mater Ecclesiae’s Ninth Annual Solemn High Mass of the Assumption
On the Feast of the Assumption, Saturday, August 15, 2009 at 12 Noon, Mater Ecclesiae Roman Catholic Church will celebrate the Ninth Annual Mass of Thanksgiving at Saint Peter Roman Catholic Church, 43 West Maple Avenue, Merchantville, New Jersey. The Solemn High Extraordinary Form of the Mass will be celebrated according to the 1962 Roman Missal and will once again feature the Ars Laudis Festival Chorus and Orchestra.
The Mass setting will be Missa Sancti Nicholai (1772) by Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809), conducted by Dr. Timothy McDonnell. The singing of the Gregorian Propers will be directed by our Cantor, Mr. Nicholas Beck.
The location of the Mass has changed this year due to ongoing renovations at the Cathedral in Camden.
For the ninth consecutive year, the Reverend Robert C. Pasley, KHS, Rector of Mater Ecclesiae, Berlin, NJ, will celebrate this Solemn Mass in thanksgiving for the canonical establishment of Mater Ecclesiae.
