Rorate Mass - Dawn Mass in Advent

Attachment-2-400x400We will celebrate the Mass of Our Lady for Advent on Saturday, 19th December. This Mass, known by its Introit as the Rorate Mass, is traditionally sung in the early morning by candlelight. Our Mass will be at 7:00am in the Lady Chapel at St Wilfrid's.

The Mass will be followed by breakfast in the Upper Room. If you would like to come to breakfast, perhaps you could let Fr Richard know.

This is a beautiful and evocative way to prepare for the coming of Our Lord at Christmas as we wait in expectation with his Blessed Mother.958_Rorate_CaeliRorate Caeli desuper et nubes pluant justum.  Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just One.
