The monthly altar serving practice for the group I am involved with (see About page) is happening. However, there will be a change in time and day. St. Lawrence the Martyr now has (like most Catholic parishes) Stations of the Cross Friday nights which is around our usual time. This will cause the Latin Mass to become 6:30pm and the stations in Italian are 730pm.
Therefore, this month's practice will be as follows:
Where: St. Lawrence the Martyr, 2210 Lawrence Ave. E, Scarborough, ON. It is closest to St. Lawrence Ave. E + Kennedy Rd. TTC access via Kennedy Station 43/43B bus and a 10 min walk west on L.A.E.
When? 630pm, after the Saturday English Vigil Mass
What Day? This coming Saturday, February 23rd, 2012
The focus of this practice will be Solemn Latin Masses as there will be one coming up the evening of Tuesday March 19. Roles will be assigned to servers who desire to serve the Solemn Mass. Currently, we have assigned servers to some of the major roles, though assignments are subject to change at the discretion of the MC/instructor.
There are no assignments to the roles of boat bearer (if needed), cross bearer, and torchbearers (minimum 2, usually 4, but up to 6). Do come out and gain valuable Solemn Mass serving experience.
In addition, if you are an adult or young man who wants to start serving, please come to the practice and send me your e-mail contact information (or that of your parents in addition to your own if you are a minor under 18) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicate if you only want to do the group practices, or if you want to also be put in contact with a Latin Mass parish and/or a Solemn Latin Mass choir in the diocese as well. I will forward your information onto the organizers, or give you information for one of the Latin Mass parishes in the diocese. Also, please submit the information by e-mail, not by comment boxes (more for your privacy).
Thanks, and God Bless. Julian Barkin, Servimus Unum Deum.
