ANNIVERSARY OF THE KNOXVILLE LATIN MASS – CELEBRATION December 6
We will celebrate this auspicious anniversary at our scheduled first-Sunday convivium after the 1:30 pm Mass at Holy Ghost Church on Sunday, December 6. This anniversary celebration will provide an opportunity for us to honor Fr. Orr who has served throughout the past decade as our Knoxville Latin Mass celebrant and the constant spiritual guide of the Knoxville Latin Mass community. Also, there will be a basket for greetings and a cake with candles in anticipation of his December 9 birthday.
Click here for a brief history of these ten wonderful years that we’ve been blessed with the most “most beautiful thing this side of heaven” back with us in Knoxville after a forty year absence. And perhaps kindle some memories of our shared labors of love over this past decade in the reintroduction of this most ancient and venerable form of the Roman rite in our diocese—from Chattanooga to Knoxville to Johnson City.

NEW PREFACE AND MARIAN ANTIPHON FOR ADVENT
Since Pentecost we've sung the Salve Regina (Hail Holy Queen) at the end of each Mass. In Advent, the closing "Marian antiphon" changes to Alma Redemptoris Mater (Holy Mother of Our Redeemer)--Campion missal page 947, Angelus missal page 114, Baronius missal page 119. Also, during Advent we will hear a special Preface for Advent (p. 878 in both the Angelus missal and the Baronius missal, but not in the Campion missal. So a handout will be available at Mass this Sunday, with the Advent preface and Marian antiphon, plus the recessional hymn (handout here).

Christmas Latin Mass
The traditional Latin Mass of Christmas will be offered again this year at Holy Ghost Church (Knoxville) at 1:30 pm on Christmas Day. At 1 pm preceding the Mass, the Knoxville Latin Mass Schola will present a program of traditional Christmas music. The Mass itself will be accompanied by the variable proper parts sung in Gregorian chant and the fixed ordinary parts (Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, etc.) in the polyphonic setting of Victoria’s Missa O Magnum Mysterium, plus motets in sacred polyphony composed by Palestrina, Tallis, and Victoria. In recent years this special Latin Mass of Christmas has attracted worshipers from a variety of parishes throughout the diocese. All area Catholics and their friends are invited to share this festive celebration of the Nativity of Our Lord.

To keep your tax-deductible Knoxville Latin Mass Community support between your parish and diocesan contributions and your tax payment. To provide for Community expenses in support of Latin liturgy (which typically average as much as a few hundred dollars weekly)--for music, surplices and cassocks for altar servers, and liturgical supplies and furnishings, and to maintain a reserve fund for special expenses ranging from candlesticks and vestments to assistance for diocesan priests learning and celebrating the traditional Latin Mass--please use the special addressed Knoxville Latin Mass Community envelopes that can be handed in, mailed in (address here), or left on the missalette tables after Mass (but should be kept separate from and in addition to the regular parish and diocesan offertory envelopes).
