Further Information:
At 5:00 p.m. every Saturday, amid the sweet smell of incense, the ancient and serene tones of Gregorian chant can be heard at Church of the Advent in their original context: a Latin Mass. The Mass provides a contemplative alternative to the more active styles of worship which have been emphasized in the Episcopal Church in recent decades, and also continues a little-known strand of Anglican tradition. It provides a truly Anglican via media, unique in the Bay Area, with the readings, sermon, and intercessions in English, while all the other prayers and the traditional psalm and scripture verses (the “minor propers”) are sung in Latin. The setting of the ordinary, sung by the congregation, is the well-known and much-loved Missa de angelis.
A reception follows.
