Epiphany: Holy Trinity has High Mass at our cathedral

In Philadelphia, "St. Clement's Jr.," formerly St. Clement's Episcopal Church's longtime core group, now Holy Trinity Catholic Church, had High Mass for the Epiphany at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter & Paul (finished by mid-1800s Scottish architect John Notman trying to be Bernini; Notman also designed St. Clement's).


Cum ergo natus esset Jesus in Bethlehem Judae, in diebus Herodis regis, ecce magi ab Oriente venerunt Jerosolymam, dicentes, "Ubi est qui natus est Rex Judaeorum? Vidimus enim stellam ejus in oriente, et venimus adorare eum."

Noveritis, fratres carissimi, quod annuente Dei misericordia, sicut de Nativitate Domini nostri Jesu Christi gavisi sumus, ita et de Resurrectione ejusdem Salvatoris nostri gaudium vobis annuntiamus. Die prima Februarii erit Dominica in Septuagesima. Octava decima ejusdem dies Cinerum, et initium jejunii sacratissimæ Quadragesimæ. Quinta Aprilis sanctum Pascha Domini nostri Jesu Christi cum gaudio celebrabitis. Quarta decima Maii erit Ascensio Domini nostri Jesu Christi. Vicesima quarta Maii festum Pentecostes. Quarta Junii festum sacratissimi Corporis Christi. Vicesima nona Novembris Dominica prima Adventus Domini nostri Jesu Christi, cui est honor et gloria, in sæcula sæculorum. Amen.

Christus Mansionem Benedicat 20 + C + M + B + 15.
