Extraordinary Form Eucharistic Adoration at St. Lawrence Martyr Sunday Evenings

Hello Everyone,

Something relatively new has started at St. Lawrence the Martyr Parish within the past few months. While this practice is not new to those who know of First Fridays, there is something new about it .....

St. Lawrence the Martyr Catholic Church, Scarborough, now has weekly Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction, every Sunday evening from 6 - 7pm, right before the late eve Novus Ordo English Mass. But there is more to it than just being another opportunity to be personally before our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, ...

I highlight it here on S.U.D. because .... by my understanding from Robin Cheung, the adoration and benediction is done in the Extraordiary Form manner! We are talking full Latin prayers, and certainly no praise and worship guitar bands and bongos. It's straight up, just like it was before the Novus Ordo, with genuflections and/or reverences done at intervals that may be foreign to you who are used to adoration and benediction of the Novus Ordo kind. The adoration and benediction is done by the Latin Mass chaplain, Fr. Steven Szakaczki, and served by Robin Cheung, veteran EF Mass server of the parish.

So please, do try to attend this lovely, Extraordinary form of Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction in our diocese when you can. You might like it all in Latin with the traditional hymns. I have also added it to the Latin Masses in the core of the diocese page on my blog for those who are looking up Mass times and the like.

In addition, if anyone is able to go to it, and get video footage of the serving portions, I will credit you on this blog and create the posting about EF adoration/benediction with it. I don't just want to rely on my books alone for that one.

Pax, Julian Barkin.
