Hyannis, MA (March 23, 2010) - On Easter Sunday, April 4, 2010, the traditional Latin (Tridentine) Mass will be sung in the Extraordinary form with Gregorian Chant at St. Francis Xavier Church, 347 South Street, at 1:00 p.m.

Sacred music and chant are integral to the Tridentine Mass, and so this will be a special opportunity to reacquaint parishioners with the grace and beauty of the High Mass
as it has been sung throughout the ages.

For Easter Sunday, the High Mass will be assisted musically by the Schola Cantorum of Falmouth. The Credo will be chanted and, all other musical segments of the Mass will be intoned and sung by the Schola from Palestrina's Missa Brevis.

Father Ron Floyd, St. Patrick's Parish, Wareham, will be the principal celebrant.
The diocesan-approved Latin Mass was permanently moved to St. Francis in early February, 2009. It is celebrated at 1:00 p.m. every Sunday, and has become a standard part of the weekend Mass schedule at St. Francis Xavier.
