Rorate Masses at Assumption Grotto, Detroit

From a reader:

Perhaps you could pass along the news that Rorate Masses are being celebrated at Assumption Grotto each Tuesday evening, in the ordinary form, throughout Advent.  They will try to provide candles for a stipend, but it would help if people brought a votive candle with them.
There is a pretty cool pic in the blogpost I took last year.  I will try to get more pics this year. 
The German priest who initiates this each year (pictured), would like very much to do this in the EF – early in the morning as it was once done, but we have been unable to pull it together.  Perhaps next year.  Last year the way the EF calendar fell played a large role in the decision to continue doing it in the OF.  Not sure if that was a factor this year.
There is a nice write up – history by Father on Rorate Masses, as well.

    If anyone is in the greater Orlando area, we will be offering a Rorate Mass in the Ordinary in the OF on 11 December at 7 PM. This will be at St. Margaret Mary Church, 526 N Park Avenue, Winter Park, FL 32789.

    Our parish always did an Advent Taize service, and I wanted to do something more Catholic and more particular to Advent. So, we have replaced the Taize Prayer with the Rorate Mass. Though there will be some Taize as a prelude to appease some, our Schola will sing the propers for the Rorate.
