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

On Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent, the faithful have their fronts signed with blessed ashes. In the reading, the holy prophet Joel calls us to recognize our faults, amend our ways through prayer and fasting,  and turn with confidence to God. The Brothers of the Little Oratory in San Diego have been invited by Fr. Gismondi, pastor of St. Anne Catholic Church, to chant  the propers and ordinary for the ceremonies of the day. Do join us!
