Solemn High Mass, Solemnity of the Assumption, 2012

A beautiful Mass was held for the Solemnity of the Assumption, on August 15, 2012, at St. Benedict Catholic Church, Richmond, VA (my parish). The Reverend James F. Kauffmann, S.S.L., Pastor, along with the Rev. Robert Novokowsky, F.S.S.P., Pastor, and the Reverend Karl Marsolle, F.S.S.P., Parochial Vicar, Saint Joseph Catholic Church, Richmond, offered the Mass in the usus antiquior for over 600 congregants and visitors. Accompanied by James A. Dorn, choirmaster/organist at Saint Benedict Church, the choir, under the direction of guest conductor Dr. Axel Theimer of Saint John’s University, Collegeville, Minnesota, sang the Missa Brevis by Zoltan Kodaly. I was singing in the choir and loving every minute of the Mass and the singing. But when not singing, I had my camera out. This and the next posts have some of those photos.
