Christmas Photos and Audio (homily) from Midnight Mass at Assumption Grotto

Elevation of the Precious Blood

Merry Christmas to all of you on this most blessed of days!

Below is a slideshow of photos taken at the Midnight Mass at Assumption Grotto for Christmas.  It was a Solemn High Mass (1962 Missal).  The celebrant and homilist was Fr. Aidan Logan, O.C.s.o.; deacon, Fr. John Bustamante, and subdeacon was Br. Esteban Ybarra

Fr. Perrone directed the Assumption Grotto Choir & Orchestra. The music program for this Christmas season includes Mozart's Mass in C Major.  See more here.  That link also includes information for two more opportunities to hear this Mozart Mass - on December 27, and January 3.

You will also find photos of the "Shepherd's Masses" done after the Midnight Mass by Fr. Perrone, Fr. Logan, and Fr. John.
