The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

All Philadelphia-area Catholics wishing to attend Mass in the Extraordinary Form on the Feast of Our Lady's Assumption  are cordially invited to attend Mater Ecclesiae's 13th Annual Assumption Mass, which will be held again this year at 7PM on August 15th at St. Peter's Church in Merchantville, New Jersey.  Mater Ecclesiae normally holds this Mass off-site in order to accommodate as many of the faithful as possible.

The setting of the Ordinary of the Mass is “Mass #1in B-flat” by Johan Nepomuk Hummel. Other works include the motets “Venite Populi” by Mozart, “Ave Virgo Gloriosa” by Frescobaldi, “Assumpta est Maria” by Rathberger, and the “Concerto for two trumpets” along with the “Concerto for two oboes in D minor” by Vivaldi.

St. Peter's is located at 43 West Maple Avenue in Merchantville and off-street parking is available.

Photos of last year's Mass which was also held at St. Peter's can be seen here.
