Dominican Rite Solemn Mass, December 8, Portland OR

A Solemn High Mass according to the Dominican Rite was celebrated by the friars of Holy Rosary Church in Portland, Oregon--a ministry of the Western Dominican Province (Most Holy Name of Jesus).

The celebrant was Fr. Stephen Maria Lopez, O.P., Prior of the Dominican community.  Fr. Vincent M. Kelber, O.P., Pastor, and Br. Andrew Dominic Yang, O.P., served as deacon and subdeacon, respectively.  The homily was preached by Fr. Dismas Sayre, O.P., parochial vicar of the parish.

Music was sung by Cantores in Ecclesia under the direction of Blake Applegate: Mass for Four Voices by William Byrd, Ave Maria by Josquin de Prez, and the Gregorian Chant Propers.
