The St. Mary's Schola Cantorum is joined today by the St. Mary’s Children’s Schola at the 9:30 Extraordinary Form Mass.

During the restoration of the main church, Masses will be held in the lower chapel. Because of space constraints, the 9:30 Mass each Sunday will be a Missa cantata rather than a Missa solemnis. Weekly Solemn Masses will resume when the upper church is reopened in late March.
