Special "Rorate Masses" celebrated by candlelight,
ad orientem-at the high altar with traditional Gregorian chant settings of Advent texts will be celebrated.
Confessions will be heard after Mass.
**The Rorate Mass is lit only by candlelight. Because it is a votive Mass in Mary’s honor, white vestments are worn instead of Advent violet. In the dimly lit setting, priest and faithful prepare to honor the Light of the world, Who is soon to be born, and offer praise to God for the gift of Our Lady.
