Public vespers with the Te Deum is not practical given that we are a commuter parish. The parish has traditionally brought in the New Year in the midst of Mass honoring Mary. We were actually receiving Communion as the New Year rolled in, as was audible by that which took place in the world around us. The beautiful Marian vestment worn on major Marian feast days was worn by Fr. Perrone.
We had Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament as the priests led us in the Holy Rosary just after Midnight.
The beautiful cope, which is part of the very old Assumption vestment set is seen here.
Te Deum Laudamus! Home
The obedient are not held captive by Holy Mother Church; it is the disobedient who are held captive by the world!
