The above title is a remark attributed to the Greek Catholic Archimandrite who ministers here in Dublin. However that may be, for those of us attached to the Traditional Latin Mass, Christmas is a bumper treat in terms of Masses. The schedule looks like this:
(NB All Masses will be sung i.e. Missa Cantata, unless they are Solemn High Mass - with deacon, subdeacon etc.)
Vigil of Christmas, Sunday 24th December, 11.00am
First Mass of Christmas, Sunday 24th December, 10.00pm
Third Mass of Christmas, Christmas Day, Monday 25th December, 11.00am
Feast of the Epiphany, Saturday January 6th 2007, 11.00am
All other Sunday Masses will be at the usual time of 11.00am.
All these Masses will be celebrated in St Audoen's Church, High St, near Christchurch Cathedral.
