I am pleased to present a series of photographs of the Dominican Rite Solemn Mass of St. Ignatius of Antioch
celebrated at Saint Albert the Great Priory
in Oakland CA on his traditional feastday, February 1. The celebrant of this Mass was Fr. Vincent Kelber, O.P., Director of the St. Jude Shrine at St. Dominic's Church in San Francisco. The ministers, choir, and servers were all students of the Western Dominican Province:
deacon, Br. Gregory Liu, O.P.; subdeacon, Br, Matthew Heynen; senior acolyte, Br. John Peter Anderson, junior acolyte, Br. Columban Mary Hall; thurifer, Br. Pawel Jamroz. The organist was Fr. James Moore, O.P.
As St. Ignatius is a third-class feast, the cross was not carried at the Gospel, and the Creed was not sung (it is only sung on third-class feasts of Apostles and the Blessed Virgin in the Dominican Rite).

Fr. Augustine, I met you over Zoom for the OP West Virtual Come and See. These are beautiful photos. It is good to see the Dominican Rite being practiced. Thanks for running this blog.
