Immaculate Conception Mass Question (Not Double Dipping Related!)


#1

I have a question about the Immaculate Conception Mass. Was the Gloria (Glory to God) supposed to be sung/recited? Tonight I was at Mass and the Gloria was sung. However, I thought the Gloria was not a part of Mass during Advent. Was this supposed to occur?


#2

Maybe because it is a Holy Day of Obligation and a Feast of Our Blessed Mother?


#3

That’s what I thought. Not sure though.


#5

Yes since it is a Solemnity , we say/sing the Gloria. We were told to not light the Advent Wreath (for Mass)

I looked ahead in the Magnificat (the monthly worship aid) we also have the Gloria for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

Thank you!

Immaculate Conception as a liturgical day outranks an Advent weekday as a liturgical day. That’s why.


#8

I went this evening. No organ. No Gloria sang or said.

Solemnities always get a Gloria, year round - Advent, Lent, any time. The Creed also should be said, which is not the case on typical weekdays.

The wreath isn’t part of any liturgy officially, so it wouldn’t matter one way or another.

IC Masses have the Gloria.

We recited the Gloria last night at the vigil
