A Solemn High Mass will be offered at St. Raymond of Peñafort Church, 8750 Pohick Road, Springfield, at 7:00 pm on Friday, August 15, in celebration of the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The faithful are reminded that the feast of the Assumption is a holy day of obligation. As on Sundays, Catholics are obliged to assist at Holy Mass on that day.
Friday evening’s Solemn High Mass will be the first ever offered at the parish. Music for the Mass will be provided by the Suspicious Cheese Lords, a local men’s vocal ensemble. A guide to the Extraordinary Form is included in this Sunday’s parish bulletin.
This Mass has been added to our seven-day schedule.
