September 11 – Requiem Mass
On Saturday, September 11, a sung Requiem Mass in the Dominican Rite at 12 NOON will be offered at St. Vincent Ferrer on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. The Schola Cantorum will sing Manuel Cardoso’s Missa pro defunctis, a masterwork of the golden age of Portuguese polyphony. This Mass is sponsored jointly by the Parish and the New York Purgatorial Society and will be offered for those who died in 2001.
The two morning Masses on September 11 (8 AM at St. Vincent Ferrer and 9 AM at St. Catherine of Siena) will be offered in commemoration for the fallen as well. A book of remembrance will be available in St. Joseph’s Chapel at St. Vincent Ferrer and at the Purgatorial Altar in St. Catherine of Siena.
