Event: 13th Annual Assumption Mass, New Jersey

Fr. Robert C Pasley Rector of Mater Ecclesiae Roman Catholic Church, Berlin, NJ invites all to Mater Ecclesiae's 13th Annual Assumption Mass. The Mass will take place on Thursday, August 15, at 7:00PM, at St Peter's Church, 43 W. Maple Avenue, Merchantville, NJ 08109.


This Mass was begun thirteen years ago to thank and honor Our Lady for the establishment of Mater Ecclesiae. We also wanted to feature some of the greatest works of orchestral/choral music ever written for the Sacred Liturgy. The setting of the Ordinary of the Mass is "Mass #1in B-flat" by Johan Nepomuk Hummel. Other works include the motets "Venite Populi" by Mozart, “Ave Virgo Gloriosa” by Frescobaldi, “Assumpta est Maria” by Rathberger, and the “Concerto for two trumpets” along with the “Concerto for two oboes in D minor” by Vivaldi.
