April First Saturday Dominican Rite Mass, Oakland CA

Through the kindness of the students of the Western Dominican Province, I have the pleasure of publishing some photographs of the Missa Cantata of the Immaculate Heart of Mary celebrated as part of the First Saturday Devotions at St. Albert the Great Priory in Oakland.

The celebrant was Fr. Bryan Kromholtz, O.P., Regent of Studies of the Western Province, and it was his first public celebration of the sung Mass in the traditional Rite.  The servers were Rev. Brother Peter Hannah, O.P., and Brother Christopher Brannan, O.P.  The thurifer was Brother Andrew Dominic Yang, O.P.  Music was provided by a schola of the brothers.
