Rorate Mass

Rorate MassWe will celebrate the Mass of Our Lady for Advent on Saturday, 20th 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.

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.
