Photos: Solemn High Mass on All Souls Day at Assumption Grotto

The catafalque is seen in the foreground.  It is a structure much like a casket, used on All Souls in the Traditional Latin Mass

The pews at Assumption Grotto parish were about 2/3 full for the 7:00 pm All Souls Day Mass (Solemn High Mass; 1962 Misal), which featured an orchestra Mass, conducted by Fr. Perrone.  It was the Faure Requiem.

Here are a few shots from the evening.

This young man sang a solo for the first time during Communion.  He had good teachers in his family and in Fr. Perrone

The Mass ended, and the prayers at the catafalque began.  The catafalque is basically a structure or empty casket which reminds us of the souls in purgatory.

More pics can be seen in my smugmug gallery:

Last night I took photos of Fr. Perrone conducting during the dress rehearsal.    Here is one such photo:
