AD ORIENTEM MASSES
The Ad Orientem Mass
Ad Orientem Masses are celebrated with the entire congregation, priest & people, facing to the liturgical East. This symbolizes the entire people of God facing the rising sun, traditionally understood as the direction from where Christ will come again in glory.
Monsignor Frost has brought this method of worship to CTK, which has been and continues to be part of the rich tradition of the Holy Roman Catholic Church. The resources on this page are provided for the faithful to acquaint themselves with the theology behind worshipping ad orientem.
One Ad Orientem Mass will be scheduled each weekend beginning in Lent 2017 - check the bulletin and this website for the schedule.
