Midnight Mass in Melbourne

Church of Saint Aloysius, Caulfield

A large congregation of the Faithful attended Midnight Mass in the Extraordinary Form on a mild summer's evening in Caulfield (Archdiocese of Melbourne).

The Solemn Mass was celebrated by Father Glen Tattersall, assisted by Father John McDaniels, priests of the Archdiocese of Melbourne whose apostolate is solely devoted to ministering to the Faithful in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.

The ceremonies of the Mass and the singing of the choir were carried out, as usual with the greatest beauty and dignity.

Below are some photographs from the Mass.
