Feast of St. Luke, Evangelist
Oct
18
7:00 PM19:00

Feast of St. Luke, Evangelist

THE FEAST OF SAINT LUKE THE EVANGELIST will be observed with a special Dominican Rite Mass on Friday, October 18, at 7:00 PM. Liturgical music will include Orlandus Lassus’ Missa ‘Bell’ amfitrit’ altera’ sung by Cantores in Ecclesia. A wine and cheese reception in Siena Hall will follow the Mass.

SAINT LUKE is described in one of the Pauline epistles as “my dear friend, Luke, the doctor” (Colossians 4:14). He is the author of the third gospel and the Acts of the Apostles. Both Eusebius and Jerome say he was probably a Greek and may have come from Antioch. It is uncertain where and when he wrote his gospel, though it was probably between A.D. 70 and 90 (Eusebius says before Paul’s death, Jerome says after). Saint Luke is the patron of painters and physicians and is represented in art as an ox.

Ordinariate Mass for the Feast of Blessed John Henry Newman
Oct

Ordinariate Mass for the Feast of Blessed John Henry Newman

On October 9th, 1845, Blessed John Henry Newman was received into the Roman Catholic Church, an act which rocked the anti-Catholic society of his day but paved the way for the conversion of many souls to Christ's Church. Today, Newman is on the verge of canonization and the Church is seeing many from the Anglican tradition return to the fullness of the Catholic faith.

Come celebrate the feast of this holy man of God with Mass according to the Ordinariate Use of the Roman Rite, using the Divine Worship Missal. Experience the reverence and beauty of our English language liturgy, which Pope Benedict XVI called "a treasure to be shared" with the whole Church!

Reception in Siena Hall to follow.

*****************************************************************************

FAQs

What is the Ordinariate?

The Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter is a Roman Catholic governing structure, similar to a diocese, established in 2012 for Anglicans and whole Anglican communities wishing to become Catholic. The bishop of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter is the Most Rev. Stephen Lopes. Members of the Ordinariate are Roman Catholics who maintain many spiritual traditions from their Anglican heritage.

To learn more about the Ordinariate, click here: https://ordinariate.net/mission

What is an Ordinariate liturgy like?

Mass using Divine Worship: The Missal is a "use" of the Roman Rite. It features distinctive Anglican spiritual traditions, such as Prayer Book English, while fully conforming to the sacramental, liturgical, and doctrinal standards of the Roman Catholic Church. Some Roman Catholics who are unfamiliar with Anglican liturgical traditions say that the Divine Worship Mass reminds them in some ways of the reverence inherent in the Extraordinary Form. But the Divine Worship Mass is thoroughly its own, English liturgical tradition within the Roman Rite. Every English-speaking Catholic should experience it!

What is the PDX Anglican Patrimony Group?

We're an unofficial, loosely affiliated group of lay people that gathers monthly to pray Ordinariate Form Evening Prayer at Holy Rosary Catholic Church. Some of us are official members of the Ordinariate, some of us are not official members of the Ordinariate, but all of us love the Ordinariate.

Feast of St. Gregory the Great
Sep

7:00 PM19:00

Feast of St. Gregory the Great

The Feast of St. Gregory the Great will be celebrated according to the Dominican Rite this coming Tuesday at 7:00 PM. Cantores in Ecclesia will sing Palestrina’s Missa Brevis and the Gregorian Chant Proper. A wine and cheese reception will follow in Siena Hall.

Gregory the Great was born in Rome in 1540 where he became the historian of St. Benedict; he even transformed his own house into a monastery where the great patriarch’s rule was observed. He is the last of the traditional Latin Doctors of the Church (with St. Ambrose, St. Augustine, and St. Jerome). England owes her conversion to him: he sent a company of Benedictine monks under whose guidance he hoped the Angles would become angels. He died in Rome on March 12, 604 and was canonized by acclamation immediately after his death.
