14 Sept: Univ. of Notre Dame – TLM Missa Cantata

I got word about this event, for the anniversary of Summorum Pontificum.  Alas, there is not indication of WHERE or WHEN.

Folks, when you send news… please provide details if you want to staple your notes to my telephone pole? 

Sung Mass at Notre Dame on September 14th

This Sunday, September 14th (Exaltation of the Holy Cross), the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite liturgy at the University of Notre Dame will be a sung Mass!

This will be the first Missa Cantata, according to the liturgical books of 1962, since the liturgical changes in the late 1960s. This is very exciting news. The student coordinators of the Traditional Latin Mass on the campus of Notre Dame continue to do great things! Our prayers are with these efforts, and for Our Lady’s University by the Lake.

    Fr. Z,

    I’m one of the students who is involved in organizing this. The Mass will be in the St. Charles Borromeo Chapel in Alumni Hall at ND, at 9AM.

  2. Vincent says:

    Based on the wording of the statement, I have to guess that the Mass is going to be the regularly scheduled TLM on campus, which is at 9:00 a.m. in the St. Charles Borromeo Chapel of Alumni Hall. It is usually open to students, faculty, staff, and their guests only, as Alumni Hall is a dormitory.

  3. LCB says:

    Don’t mix this one up with the 10pm Sunday Alumni hall mass.

    I went there (2 weeks ago) and they began the dorm chant of barking incredibly loudly right after Communion and before the Dismas.

  4. Sorry for the confusion. The original source is a local blog out of South Bend. Readers of that infoblog are already familiar with the Mass schedule that is posted there. The original has been corrected to reflect that the sung Mass will be the regularly scheduled Mass at Alumni Hall, at 9:00 am.

  5. Michael says:

    Can anyone clarify if this is, in fact, a private mass or if it is available to the public?

  6. Gilbert says:

    Not true regarding who is allowed to attend the Masses in Alumni! These Masses are open to the community. Just enter through the chapel door (with the statue of Our Lady on top) in the middle of the building facing the South Quad.

    There seems to be a confusion here stated about “private” Masses and “public” Masses. As I understand, there is no such thing as a “private” Mass in Canon Law, unless this Mass is said totally alone by a priest for either health reasons or other extraordinary reasons. In other words, every Mass by definition is public, and therefore, anyone may attend.

    Would a Canon Lawyer care to comment?

  8. lcb says:

    The university -who owns the building- desires that only members of the nd community attend. Private property and whatnot. Since this is a dorm the request seems reasonable. I doubt the basilica will be graced with the EF in the lady chapel anytime soon

    There is a 745 Latin mass at st patrick
