Any of your parishes having a Thanksgiving day Mass?


#41

Our parish always has the regular weekday Mass, and another.

I was surprised our diocesan Latin Mass community had Mass. They normally only have Mass on Sundays and Catholic feast days. Thanksgiving was historically a “Protestant sort of feast” until recent decades.
If I had known in advance I would have come.

Even though it was Thanksgiving Mass we did have mention of St. Cecilia and used some of the prayers for her Mass as well.


#43

Is St. Cecilia an optional memorial? And can’t a Thanksgiving Day Mass still be St. Cecilia?


#44

No. Cecilia is an important saint. She’s in the Roman Canon.


#45

Then wouldn’t the Mass be for St. Cecilia’s memorial regardless of whether Thanksgiving was also being celebrated?


#46

Yes, it this year officially is for the saint. But parishes will describe it as Thanksgiving day, to make it easier to identify. No reason why we can’t be thankful at Mass.

I was impressed with my oarish’s Thanksgiving Mass. When U went last year it was pretty much like a normal daily Mass. This year it was just like a Sunday Mass minus the Gloria and Creed.


#48

Hmmmm. We always sing the Gloria on Thanksgiving. However I don’t remember saying the Creed.


#49

I remember saying the Creed but not the Gloria.
