The Latin Mass (AKA - Tridentine Liturgy) is offered weekly at Mary Immaculata in Newton. And, St. Adelaide's in West Peabody begins a weekly 'latin Mass ' on June 29th.

Other parishes in Boston are looking at provding the 'Latin Mas.'

Thanks, Deacon Mike, for the info!

Last week we had both ordinary form and extraordinary form. I found that the Latin Mass is a bit rich for me for a regular diet. But the ordinary Masses were more formal and "worshipful" than the average church Mass. I prefer an ordinary Mass with more decorum, no EMs, some prayers in Latin prayer and/or Gregorian chant. And music from the choir loft or back of the church, not next to the altar.


Amen to this thread! I don't know why "we" "prefer" to sing the kind of things that we do - I long to have our music director choose "Holy Holy Holy" for the entrance hymn (if we can't have a proper Introit). Unfortunately, it's probably about time for the choir to drag out the tambourine for a rousing rendition of "We shall gather at the River" (and usually as a post-Communion "meditation" hymn! I never really considered the tambourine to be very meditational.) Any votes for "Jesus, My Lord, My God, My All!" ???

Thanks for keeping the faith!
