Missa Cantata - The Exaltation of the Holy Cross
Una Voce Toronto is pleased to announce that a Missa Cantata in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite will be celebrated on September 14, the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. This is the third special Feast Day or former Holy Day of Obligation Usus Antiquior liturgy which we have organised. Over 225 attended St. Mark's on Corpus Christi and almost 400 on the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary at St. Mary Immaculate in Richmond Hill.
Continuing our plan to promote the Extraordianry Form of the Roman Rite across the Archdiocese of Toronto this Mass will be at St. Joseph's Streetsville, in Mississauga. Considering that "Mississauga" was formed as a City in 1968, I think it is safe to say that this is the first time that a public, Missa Cantata according to the liturgical books of 1962, will be celebrated there.
It is also the fourth anniversary of the coming into force of the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum which has made all this possible and to give thanks to God for this grace, the "Te Deum" will be sung following the Mass.
Una Voce Toronto will make available for "sale' the red missalettes to assist with the Ordianry of the Mass for $5.00. We will no longer "loan" these out for the Mass as they are not being returned. A translation aid will be available for the Proper of the Mass. However, we encourage you to purchase a Roman Missal which can be easily found at the book stall on Sundays at The Oratory at either St. Vincent de Paul or Holy Family. As well you can find the "Baronius" Missal on lne which we highly recommend.
