Throughout the month of November, the Church has been remembering the Holy Souls in Purgatory. The Catholic Artists Society, in conjunction with The New York Purgatorial Society, is sponsoring this Requiem Mass, which will be offered for our deceased family members, friends and fellow artists. 

The rich theology, symbolism and beautiful prayers of the traditional Catholic Mass for the Dead have inspired great artists for centuries. Please pray with the Society in these final days of November, before we turn to Advent. 

For members unable to attend the Mass, we look forward to sharing photos and audio extracts soon.

In conjunction with the New York Purgatorial Society, the CAS will sponsor a Solemn Requiem Mass (Traditional Roman Rite) on Thursday, November 29th at the Church of St. Agnes in New York City. The setting for the Mass will be Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem (opus 48), sung by The Schola Cantorum of St. Agnes, led by organist and choirmaster James Wetzel.

The Society invites you to join in assisting at this Mass, which will be offered for the repose of the souls of our deceased family members, friends, colleagues and the Holy Souls in Purgatory. In keeping with the Church’s tradition, we encourage our members to pray for the dead throughout the month of November.   

This is a rare chance to hear Fauré’s stunning Requiem Mass in its entirety, in the liturgical setting for which it was written.  

The celebrant and homilist for the Mass will be Father Justin Wylie (Archdiocese of Johannesburg, South Africa). Father Wylie is currently attaché to The Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to the United Nations. Father Michael Barone (Archdiocese of Newark) will act as deacon. 

Highlights from CAS Annual Mass for Artists, 2012

Oculi omnium in te sperant, Domine: et tu das illis escam in tempore opportuno.V. Aperis tu manum tuam: et imples omne animal benedictione. 

The eyes of all look towards you in Hope, O Lord, and you give them their food in due season. V. You open your hand and fill every living thing with your blessing…
