Vespers, a new addition to the schedule this year, was wonderful! We printed 200 worship aids and ran out. Reintroducing the traditions of our faith bit by bit!
A special thanks for Dr. John Shady, our Director of Sacred Music, for his enormous efforts to make the Mass and Solemn Vespers with Te Deum occasions of great solemnity and beauty.
Thanks to a good friend of the parish we have some pictures of the occasion to share. I will post some from the Mass below followed by some from the Vespers service. Also, for those who are interested, the program from the Vespers service is included below. Feel free to print it and use it for your own Marian evening devotions!
More information on the chasuble worn by the bishop at Mass can be found HERE.
