Midnight Mass at the Oratory

Saint Francis de Sales Oratory, in Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - view from choir loft

Saint Francis de Sales Oratory was silent yesterday evening when I took this photo, but tonight the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest will offer a glorious orchestral Midnight Mass. The Mass setting will be the Missa Solemnis in C, K.337, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Festivities will start at 11:30 with Christmas carols, then Solemn High Mass at Midnight, followed by veneration of wood taken from the relic of the crib.
