questions about the latin mass
Is this very different from normal Mass?
Yes and no. Come and see! Here and here are a couple introductions, though St. Mary's doesn't necessarily agree with everything they say. Most importantly, feel welcome—and come with an open heart.
What is "Low Mass," What is "Missa Cantata"?
"Low Mass" is without singing, while "Missa Cantata" ("sung Mass") is with singing. Sung Mass requires more volunteers to chant the Mass, and we are very appreciative for their help.
