We are pleased to invite you to the celebration of the feast of the Apostle and Evangelist Matthew at St. Joseph Cathedral.  Solemn High Mass will be accompanied by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina's masterpiece Missa Papae Marcelli, along with Gregorian Chant proper. We are very grateful to Fr. Navarra, pastor, for his hospitality and we express also our deep gratitude to the priests of the Fraternity of St. Peter at St. Anne Catholic Church. Although the Missa Papae Marcelli is often performed at concerts, it can be more deeply appreciated in the context of the very liturgy it was composed for.

On His way to Jerusalem, Our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ encountered ten lepers. He healed them, but only one, a gentile, returned to thank Him afterward, showing greater faith and gratitude than the others. Come to St. Joseph Cathedral on Sunday, September 8, to meditated on this  mystery through Gregorian chant.

Because this year May 26 fell on a Sunday, we could not celebrate the feast day of our holy patron, St. Philip Neri. Therefore we honor him belatedly with a votive sung Mass at St. Joseph Cathedral. We are grateful to the pastor, Fr. Navarra, for his hospitality and to Fr. Dorsa, the celebrant, for his generosity. The music will include  Missa Brevis by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Ave Virgo Sanctissima by Francisco Guerrero. O Sacrum Convivium by Giovanni Croce, Ave Maria by T.L. de Victoria, and Salve Regina by Francesco Soriano. The Brothers will sing the Gregorian proper and serve at the altar.
