TLM at Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, NC

Friends of the Mass in the Extraordinary Form, the following is the schedule for the remaining Masses of the Year celebrated by Fr. Samuel F. Weber (pictured right) at Davis Chapel at Wake Forest University:
  • Sunday, 25 Nov: Mass at 1:30pm; Propers for the last Sunday after Pentecost
  • Friday, 30 Nov: Mass at 11am; Propers for the Feast of St. Andrew
  • Saturday, 01 December: Mass at 11am; Propers of Propers for the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mass Salve Sancta Parens
  • Sunday, 02 December: Mass at 1:30pm; Propers for the First Sunday in Advent (start of the 2008 liturgical year)
You are also reminded of the following:
  1. There are no kneelers in Davis Chapel, you may wish to bring something to kneel upon.
  2. If you have a Missal for the Mass of Bl. John XXIII, bring it.
  3. If you need help with directions and parking, or if you have any other questions, email me
  4. And spread the word. Numbers are important.
Attendance is reportedly growing, with a small choir now practicing for a High Mass on 20 Jan 2008 at Davis Chapel using the book of Rossini Propers. Father Weber is reportedly making copies of parts available, and is actively involved in assisting in the choir in learning its parts -- the introit, gradual, offertory, etc. There seems to be a great deal of enthusiasm among the participants. If you're in the vicinity, make a point of visiting Davis Chapel for Sunday Mass.

I've had the privilege of meeting Fr. Weber when he came to speak at the annual Aquinas-Luther Conference at Lenoir-Rhyne College. A few of you may also remember that he was a presenter at the conference on Fellowship of Catholic Scholar's 29th Annual Convention in Kansas City in 2006 on the topic, "Sacrosanctum Concilium and the Reform of the Liturgy." Fr. Weber led conference participants in learning to chant some antiphonal plainsong Mass settings that he had arranged and printed for the occasion in a booklet for us entitled, Chants for the Order of Mass (2006) ("Back from Kansas City ..." Musings, September 16, 2006). Needless to say, Fr. Weber understands the meaning of good liturgy.
