Missa Cantata at Georgetown University

Continuing on with our "liturgical news from American colleges" theme -- which seems to be gaining momentum this week -- our current entry comes within the context of All Saints Day at Georgetown University.

There, on that feast, Fr. Stephen Fields, S.J., celebrated a Mass for the students in the usus antiquior (a Missa Cantata). In point of fact, there were two Masses celebrated for the students on All Saints, one according to the ancient liturgical books, and one according to the modern Roman liturgical books. Very "Benedictine" indeed of the university chaplaincy, and certainly to be lauded.

Here are a few photos.
