Sung Mass in the Extraordinary Form
for Ash Wednesday
Celebrant: Rev. Carl N. Gismondi, Jr., F.S.S.P.

This is the time of the year when we are called to reflect on our mortality and, in this perspective, to set aside transitory goods for those goods that cannot be taken away from us. The Brothers of the Little Oratory in San Diego have been invited by Fr. Gismondi, pastor of St. Anne's, to sing the Gregorian propers and ordinary for the Mass of Ash Wednesday. On Ash Wednesday, the faithful are signed with the blessed ashes and hear the warning: Remember O man, that dust thou art, and to dust thou shalt return. Come and witness this most ancient ceremony.
