Mater Ecclesiae’s Eighth Annual Solemn Mass of the Assumption

On the Feast of the Assumption, Friday, August 15, 2008 at 7:00 PM, Mater Ecclesiae Roman Catholic Church will celebrate the Eighth Annual Mass of Thanksgiving at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Broadway and Market St., Camden, NJ. The Solemn High Extraordinary Form of the Mass will be celebrated according to the 1962 Roman Missal and will once again feature the Ars Laudis Festival Chorus and Orchestra.

The Mass setting will be the Missa della Cappella (1641) by Claudio Monteverdi (ca. 1567-1643), conducted by Dr. Timothy McDonnell. The singing of the Gregorian Propers will be directed by our Cantor, Mr. Nicholas Beck.

For the eighth consecutive year, Reverend Robert C. Pasley, KHS, Rector of Mater Ecclesiae, Berlin, NJ, will celebrate this Solemn Mass in thanksgiving for the canonical establishment of Mater Ecclesiae on October 13, 2000, the anniversary of the final apparition of Our Lady at Fatima. All Masses and Sacraments are celebrated according to the liturgical books of 1962.
