The Paulus Institute will sponsor the sixth annual Nellie Gray Mass at 4:00 pm this Friday, January 19, 2017, at Washington’s St. Mary Mother of God Church, which was the late Miss Gray’s place of Sunday worship. Friday afternoon’s Mass will come at the conclusion of the annual March for Life in Washington. This Mass is being added to our seven-day schedule.
Very Reverend Monsignor Andrew Wadsworth, Moderator of the Oratory of St. Philip Neri in Washington, will offer a Solemn High Mass for Forgiveness of Sins. Choral accompaniment for the Mass on behalf of the vulnerable unborn, in whose defense Miss Gray worked tirelessly for many years until her death in 2012, will be provided by the St. Mary’s Schola under the direction of David Sullivan.
St. Mary Mother of God Church is located at 727 Fifth Street NW in Chinatown.
