Saturday, Rorate Mass, 6:30am

Where: St. Patrick Church, Kokomo, IN (1204 N. Armstrong St.)

When: Dec. 9, 6:30am

What is a Rorate Mass?: (from wikipedia)

Before the liturgical changes that followed the Second Vatican Council, this Mass was celebrated very early in the morning on all Saturdays. In some areas, it was celebrated on several or even all weekdays during Advent (the Votive Mass of Our Lady in Advent).

The Rorate Mass is a Votive Mass in honor of the Virgin Mary for the season of Advent. It has a long tradition in the Catholic Church, especially in German-speaking areas.  The Masses had to begin relatively in the morning when it was still dark due to winter-time and were said by candlelight.
