A Missa Cantata, according to the Dominican Rite, will be celebrated on Sunday, August 4, 2013 at 2:00PM at St. Patrick Catholic Church, 280 N Grant Ave Columbus, OH 43215

Celebrant: Fr. Austin Litke OP, Assistant Chaplain at New York University

This Mass is open to the public and is the second public celebration of the traditional Dominican Liturgy in the Dominican parish of St. Patrick’s since Pope Benedict XVI’s issuance of the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum. In the calendar of the Dominican Rite, August 4 is the Solemnity of Our Holy Father, St. Dominic, which takes liturgical precedence over the Mass of Sunday (so Sunday obligation is fulfilled)

For men considering a vocation there will be a meal following the Mass with our friars, but you must RSVP.

Some have asked if we are "returning" to the Dominican Rite. On the contrary, we are moving forward. The Province of St. Joseph follows the Novus Ordo of the Roman Rite in all its priories, houses and parishes. A number of our friars (both priests & student friars) are carefully learning to celebrate the Dominican rite. As was said on our tutorial site, the Dominican liturgy is not to be understood as a rival to the Novus Ordo, which remains the Ordinary Form of the Mass, but as a supplement to enrich our liturgical life with the treasures of our tradition, consistent with the express wishes of the Second Vatican Council (Sacrosanctum Concilium 4). Other questions could be answered in a document recently written: Q&A: Ecclesiae Universae and the Dominican Rite.

For more information about the Dominican Rite check out Dominican Liturgy, a blog from a friar of the Western Dominican Province.
