This past October I had the privilege of witnessing the marriage of a member of the Dominican Chapter of Bl. Margaret of Castello in Boise to his lovely bride. The marriage was observed according to the Roman Ritual with a Nuptial Mass according to the Dominican Rite following. As Fr. Augustine has written upon, there is no Marriage ceremony in the Dominican Rite as it is a monastic rite. Locals tell me that this was the first ancient rite Mass celebrated in St. John's Cathedral since the Second Vatican Council.
