Rorate Mass

Attachment-2-400x400-400x400We will celebrate the Mass of Our Lady for Advent on Saturday, 23 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 7am in the Lady Chapel at St Wilfrid's.

The Mass will be followed by breakfast in the Upper Room. If you would like to have breakfast afterwards please contact  Sue Whitaker.

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_Caeli-400x136Rorate Caeli desuper et nubes pluant justum.

Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just One.
