Upcoming Solemn Masses in Rome

The Pontifical University of St Thomas Aquinas in Rome, commonly known as the Angelicum, will hold two solemn Mass within the next few days: tomorrow, the feast of the Presentation of the Virgin Mary, in the Roman Rite, and Monday, the feast of St Catherine of Alexandria, in the Dominican Rite. (St Catherine is traditionally honored as the Patron Saint of philosophers and theologians, and was therefore held in particular veneration by the scholarly Dominican Order, which kept her feast with an octave until 1923.) Both Masses will be celebrated in the church of Ss Sixtus and Dominic, which is next to the university and administered by the Dominican Fathers, and begin at 12:30 pm.

In addition, this semester, the two regular weekly Masses in the traditional Rite have now been upped to four, Monday through Thursday at 12:30 pm, alternating between the Dominican and Roman Rites, with confessions also available during Mass times. (This schedule is contingent on the schedules of the celebrating clergy, and may change with the next semester.)
