Dominican Rite Sung Mass of St. Thomas Aquinas, University of Utah Newman Center (3/7/15)

I just received some photos of the Dominican Rite Missa Cantata celebrated at St. Catherine of Siena Newman Center at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, which I had previously announced here.  The Mass was on the traditional feast day of St. Thomas, March 7, and the celebrant and preacher were both priests of the Western Dominican Province.

The celebrant of the Mass was Fr. Peter Hannah, O.P. (ordained May 31, 2014), the servers were Arron Miller, Nathaniel Binversie, and Matthew Vaughn, students of the University.  The music was lead by the cantors, Fr. Christopher Gray (associate pastor, Sts. Peter and Paul Parish, West Valley, Utah) and Mr. Luke Stager (theology teacher, Judge Memorial Catholic High School).  The preacher was Fr. Carl Schlicte, O.P., pastor and superior of the community. Note that the acolytes are wearing albs as is prescribed in the Dominican books for those serving on First Class Feasts.
