Sung Mass in the Extraordinary Form
for the Saturday in the 3rd Week of Lent
Celebrant: Rev. Fr. Harry Neely, O.S.A.

Come and join us on Saturday, March 17, at 9:30,  at St. John's in North Park and experience the ancient Gregorian chants of the Traditional Latin Mass.  The weekdays of Lent contain in fact  musical gems that are rarely heard outside of monasteries.  This Saturday the readings will focus on two women, the chaste Susanna of the Book of Daniel and the adulterous woman of the Gospel of John, who are both delivered by God from their accusers.
