Celebration of Mass of the Baptism of Our Lord according to the Ordinariate Form (Divine Worship) and Choral Evensong will take place January 10th at the Emmaus Hall Chapel of St. John’s University, Collegeville, Minnesota. (Directions here.) The Evensong service will also include the enrollment of those members of the inaugural group of oblate candidates of the chapter who live in and around Minnesota.
Sung Mass (Divine Worship form) – 1:30 p.m.
Choral Evensong with Enrollment of Oblate Candidates – ca. 2:45 p.m., followed by coffee and tea.
Oblate candidates in this inaugural group who live in other parts of the country and Canada are celebrating their enrollments from afar, but will be present in our prayers on January 10th.
The music will be mostly plainchant—a fitting beginning for a group of prospective Benedictine oblates.
