DOMINICAN RITE MASS IN CHARLOTTESVILLE VA
By an initiative of the pastor, Fr. Luke Clark, O.P., in response to requests by parishioners, St. Thomas Aquinas University Parish in Charlottesville VA, will host a Dominican Rite Missa Cantata (Sung Mass) on an experimental basis each third Sunday of the month during the rest of the academic year. The dates will be March 15, April 19, and May 17. The Mass will be celebrated at 10:15 a.m. in the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Chapel of the parish center at 401 Alderman Road, which is attached to the church.
Music will be provided by a group of parishioners singing from the Dominican Gradual, and the celebrant will be Fr. Augustine Thompson, O.P., S.T.M., professor of Religious Studies and History at the University, a member of the Western Dominican Province. Depending on the response, this offering may become a regular offering after the summer recess.
