First Mass (OF) in the Oratorian Parish of Vienna

Fr Johannes Paul Chavanne OCist, one of the two priests recently ordained at Heiligenkreuz Abbey, is from Vienna's Oratorian parish of St. Rochus. This Sunday he celebrated his First Mass at his home parish (Heimatprimiz). Mass in the Ordinary Form was sung - as is usual at St. Rochus - ad orientem, and - except for the readings and intercessions - in Latin.
