Grotto Mass notes for this Sunday...

With the Call to Holiness this weekend and several guest speakers in from out of town, people are wondering who may have the main Masses. 

The choir was told on Wednesday before our rehearsal that Fr. Z will have the 9:30am Mass and it will be a Solemn High Mass.  As we have on most Sundays, there will be chant and sacred polyphony.

I believe Bishop Athanasius Schneider, ORC will have the Noon Mass.  This Mass is in the Ordinary Form and is partially in the vernacular and in Latin (Eucharistic Prayer).  As with all Masses at Grotto, even the ordinary form is celebrated ad orientem, at the wall altar.

If you have not been to Grotto - we have BBQ'd hamburgers, hot dogs and sausages most Sundays after the 9:30am and Noon Masses.  Just follow the crowd into the school.  We have an excellent giftshop/bookstore, as well.

I'll share pics of Call to Holiness and the Sunday Masses as soon as I get the photos edited.

Please pray for the speakers of Call to Holiness and for participants.  May God's grace guide them.

You may want to follow the blog of Fr. Z while he is here in Detroit.  He is handy with a camera and has been taking some.....well....interesting tours of the city.
