Christmas Season Schedule at Assumption Grotto

The above shows you the upcoming orchestral Mass schedule through Sunday, January 5, 2014.  

Here it is in type:

Masses for Christmas obligation

Wednesday, December 25 
  • [checking to see if there are other Masses before Midnight on Christmas Eve]
  • Midnight (orchestral Mass; prelude music beginning at 11:45 p.m. on December 24)
  • 6:30 AM (Novus Ordo, usually vernacular)
  • 9:30 AM (High Mass, TLM, regular Grotto choir not singing)
  • 12:00 noon (Novus Ordo, usually vernacular)
Other Orchestral Masses 
  • Sunday, December 29, at 9:30 a.m. (Solemn High Mass; orchestral, as above)
  • Sunday, January 5, 2014 at 12:00 noon (Solemn High Mass; orchestral, as above)

Solemnity of the Mother of God

  • [checking to see if there is an earlier evening vigil Mass around the usual 4:00 time frame]
  • December 31, 2013, at 11:00 p.m. (checking on this: usually a concelebrated Novus Ordo followed by Rosary;  Te Deum Laudamus prayed (chant, in Latin) for indulgence before midnight. And, usually a post-midnight pot-luck or other gathering in the school gym).  
  • January 1, 2014, usual holy day schedule (6:30 a.m., 9:30 a.m., and noon - with the 9:30 being TLM and the other two most likely following the Sunday pattern of being Novus Ordo, mostly in the vernacular).
I'm working on getting the Confession schedule and other questions answered.  I'll make a new post with the updates so watch my home page or

The obedient are not held captive by Holy Mother Church;
it is the disobedient who are held captive by the world!
