Pictures from Ascension Mass in Charlotte, North Carolina

Our thanks to Mr John Cosmas for sharing with us his photographs of this Mass celebrated for the feast of the Ascension at St Ann’s Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. The very large complete photoset can be viewed by clicking here. The Mass was accompanied by the Carolina Catholic Chorale singing the Missa Octo Vocum for double choir by Hans Leo Hassler (1564-1612). The celebrant, Fr Jason Christian, the deacon, Fr Jason Barone, and subdeacon, Fr Patrick Winslow, are all diocesan priests of Chralotte; the homily was delivered by Fr Timothy Reid, the pastor of St Ann’s. Our congratulations to all of those who participated in this ceremony, clergy, servers, choir and musicians, for their efforts to preserve the Church’s musical patrimony, and pass it on to those even younger than themselves; hope for the future!
