Fr. Augustine, will there be any such liturgy at St. Thomas Aquinas today?

Dear Lauren,

I assume this is Lauren B. I don't know what is planned in Charlottesville. You will have to call Fr. Brian or the parish. I believe there was a nice Mass, with some music by the Gregorian Schola at the usual evening Mass time.

I am here in Seattle about to go and help with prep. for the Dominican Solemn Mass tonight.

Happy feast day to you, the Dominican Laity, the friars, and the parish!

I attended the Dominican Rite mass at Blessed Sacrament last night - it was wonderful. Some years ago when I was visiting Seattle I'd attended a Dominincan rite mass when Father Fulton was there. I look forward to the day when there will be a weekly mass at Blessed Sacrament.
