The parish of St. Thomas Aquinas in Charlotte, North Carolina offered a Rorate Mass yesterday, December 6th. Over 125 faithful braved the cold December rain to attend the dawn Solemn High Mass by candlelight. The Mass was offered by Father Matthew Kauth, a priest in residence at the parish, and was assisted by Father Noah Carter, parochial vicar of Sacred Heart parish in Salisbury, North Carolina who served as Deacon and also Father Jason Christian, parochial vicar at St. Thomas Aquinas served as Subdeacon. The traditional Mass was first offered at the parish on first Saturday in September of this year, and now in addition to first Saturdays, offers a High Mass each Wednesday evening. Another Charlotte parish, St. Ann in Charlotte will offer a Rorate Mass on December 20th at 6:30 am.
