Latin at N.O.?

Does your parish have an N.O. mass with Latin and/or the Kyrie in Greek?
If so, are there more like it in your diocese?

We sing the Agnus Dei in latin, usually.The Kyrie is generally in english.

My parish doesn’t have the N.o in Latin…but does say the Kyrie in Greek at Solemn Mass.

Not my diocese, but just across the River they have N.O Latin Mass at the Brompton Oratory (www.bromptonoratory.com) and at Westminster Cathedral (www.westminstercathedral.org.uk) If you’re interested I believe the Latin Mass Society does N.O Latin Masses?

At daily Masses, one of our associate pastors usually does the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei in Latin. I love it.

Thank you!
Actually, I think I am looking for an EWTN type Holy Mass.
With English and Latin.

Two of my area parishes frequently (but not frequently enough) use Latin songs (Agnus Dei, Parce Domine, etc.) as well as the Greek Kyrie.

One of those two has a full Latin N.O. on the first Sunday of each month.

My Parish offers a N.O. Mass in Latin/Greek/English on the first Sunday of every month at 12:00 noon. They also offer the Tridentine Mass at 8:00 a.m. every Sunday. We have the only Tridentine Mass in the Diocese that I know of. I don’t know about any other Churches who offer the N.O. with Latin/Greek. In one of the Parishes very close to my home they used to have an Italian Priest who I liked very much, he has retired and moved back to Italy. He used to say the Kyrie in Greek and the Agnus Dei in Latin at his Masses. It was nice. They don’t do that now that he is gone. There could be other Churches who do that but I am not aware of them.

Our parish does exactly that, although with a bit more Latin because we chant the Introit, Gradual (first alleluia during Paschaltide), Alleluia, Offertory, and Communion chants in Latin. The scripture readings, general intercessions, and Roman Canon are chanted in English.

Sounds like our “Latin Mass” at our parish. We sing the Gloria, Pater Noster, the Credo, Sanctus, and Agnus Dei in Latin. Plus Insense, bells, and gregoran chant from our mens choir from the balcony. :slight_smile:

Sweeeeeet! Next time my family heads down to Portland I’ll try to hunt down your parish! lol.

When I lived in Arlington, my parish one a month would have a Mass with all the music in Latin (including the Gloria and Agnus Dei) and the Kyrie in Greek.

Occasionally, I have been to Masses elsewhere where the music is in Latin.

Oh don’t get me started on the Western Dominican Province!! :frowning:

They don’t like us very much (HumanaeVitae-Catechism-following-homeschooling-kneeling-recieving-on-the-tongue-Catholics!!), but we perservere in the tradition of St Dominic rather than the modern Domincian leadership.

Holy Rosary, while certainly not perfect, is also an orthodox oasis in a rediculously heterodox diocese like Portland.

Wow, that’s good to know. My girlfriend has seriously contemplated becoming a lay tertiary and the nearest chapter of tertiaries is in Portland. Nothing up here in Spokane except for poor Sister Antonia, the lone sweet 80 year old habited dominican. lol. Much to discuss and pray about!

St Albert’s? LOL. Oh, yeah… before we met she had been discerning a vocation to the professed sisterhood with the sisters down in Nashville. They are SO COOL! We went on a whirlwind tour of Napa Valley monasteries this summer and she and I discussed the possibility of becoming Dominican tertiaries. I’m not sure that would work well for me, the wannabe Byzantine, but I know that she is most definitely a Scholastic at heart. Is there anyone worth talking with in Portland?

When I lived near Columbia, Maryland, St. Louis Parish sang the Kyrie in Greek. It was the most beautiful *Kyrie *chant I have ever heard.

At St. Mary of Mercy in downtown Pittsburgh, the Agnus Dei is sung sometimes during daily Mass. There was a priest there, now retired, who always sang the Agnus Dei during the 7:30 daily Mass. It was beautiful, too.

St. Margaret Mary’s in Oakland, CA has the entire Pauline Mass in Latin. I’m also noticing that many of the churches in our area are starting to use Latin/Greek for the Kyrie, Agnus Dei and Sanctus which probably has something to do with our new bishop. :thumbsup:
