This Friday, 16 November, the LNS will be hosting the closing Mass and Benediction of the American College community’s afternoon watch of the Blessed Sacrament (participating in the “Venite Adoremus” event.) Mass will begin as usual at 5:30, with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament following.

Learn to Pray the Mass in Latin

The high altar at the American College prepared for mass for All Souls.

The LNS has begun an initiative to encourage students to learn the ordo missae in Latin. In this, the LNS has for its inspiration, Sacrosanctum concilium 54:

Nevertheless steps should be taken so that the faithful may also be able to say or to sing together in Latin those parts of the Ordinary of the Mass which pertain to them.

Every Friday at 5:30 at the American College, masses will be held, first in English with some Latin, and then, gradually over the course of the year, more of the Latin parts will be implemented in ‘phases.’ ALL ARE WELCOME!
