Marian Antiphons:

Alma Redemptoris Mater (Advent to the Purification)
Ave Regina Caelorum (after the Purification to the Easter Vigil) Regina Caeli (the Easter Vigil through Pentecost Sunday)
Salve Regina (after Pentecost Sunday to Advent)

Starting on the first Sunday of Advent, and through the Feast of the Purification, the traditional end of the Christmas season, Alma Redemptoris Mater is usually sung at the end of Mass on Sundays and Feast Days. The Institute’s recent Gregorian chant recording, Gaudeamus Omnes, contains the four seasonal Marian antiphons as part of the Office of Compline, in simple and solemn tones. These Marian anthems can be downloaded individually on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Apple Music, CD Baby and more. For details and to hear clips of each track, go to:

Please remember...

Cell Phones: Please have your cell phones on silent. 

Prayer Responses during Masses: Low Mass: The altar servers are responding for the faithful so there is no need for the faithful to respond. High Mass: The faithful are welcomed to sing/respond for the Ordinaries. 

Parking Tickets: Please be aware of street parking/street cleaning to avoid parking tickets.
