The Annual Assumption Mass

Fr. Robert C Pasley, KCHS, Chaplain of the CMAA and Rector of Mater Ecclesiae Roman Catholic Church, Berlin, NJ invites all to Mater Ecclesiae's 12th Annual Assumption Mass. The Mass will take place on Tuesday, August 14, at 7:00PM, at St Peter's Church, 43 W. Maple Avenue, Merchantville, NJ 08109. Please note that it will be the anticipated Mass of the Feast. The setting of the Ordinary of the Mass is the "Mass in E Minor" by Anton Bruckner. Other works include the motet "Quis te comprehendat", which is a reimagination of the "Gran Partita" of Mozart. There will also be two premieres, both written by Conductor Dr. Timothy McDonnell; a choral setting of the "Et Incarnatus est" which will be sung during Credo III, and a setting of the "Sub Tuum Praesidium," for 10 wind instruments, organ and chorus. We hope you can attend, but if not, spread the word. The Assumption Mass has become one of the most grand, if not the grandest, celebration of Our Lady's Assumption in the country.
