In observance of the Feast of the Ascension, the Traditional Latin Mass (Extraordinary Form) will be offered in several locations in Northern Virginia on Thursday, May 29. Among the Masses to be offered is a Missa Cantata at St. Michael Church, 7401 St. Michael’s Lane, Annandale, to be celebrated by parochial vicar Rev. Richard Carr at 7:30 pm.
The Feast of the Ascension, traditionally observed on the 40th day after Easter, is a holy day of obligation at which all Catholics are obliged to assist at Holy Mass. The obligation is transferred to the following Sunday in the Archdioceses of Washington and Baltimore and the Diocese of Arlington.
All Masses for Ascension Thursday of which we have been able to learn have been added to our seven-day schedule. Please check the bulletin or website of the parish in which you are interested for the latest information.
