Holy Comforter Catholic Church is proud to offer Masses in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite every Sunday and on special feast days.
That includes the highest-ranked feasts of Christmas (Midnight), Easter and Pentecost, as well as Ash Wednesday, Ascension Thursday, the Immaculate Conception and the Octave of Christmas. Holy Comforter also offers a Requiem Mass every All Souls Day and, by request, Requiem Masses for funerals.
The “Tridentine” Rite is the form of the Mass published in the Roman Missal from 1570 to 1962..
The Mass of St. John XXIII also follows a separate liturgical calendar. That means that certain feast days will fall on different days and certain feasts celebrated today are absent from the previous calendar. The Tridentine Rite also has the season of “pre-Lent” and uses ordinal counting between seasons instead of referring to “Ordinary Time.” That means, for instance, September 3, 2017, was referred to as the “13th Sunday after Pentecost” as opposed to the “22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time.” Sundays following the Epiphany, but before Septuagesima, are simply referred to as the “Nth Sunday After the Epiphany.”

Getting involved in the Latin Mass at Holy Comforter
Because this Mass is unique and can be complex to serve, we are always looking for potential acolytes who are interested helping us celebrate this form of the Mass. Per the specific rubrics of the Rite, serving at this form of the Mass is open to boys and men. If you believe the Lord is calling you and/or your sons to serve at this Mass, please contact our Seminarian William Yearout.
We now have Men’s and Ladies’ Scholas that chant at all Sung Masses. If you are interested in Gregorian Chant, please contact our music director, Daniel Kirkland, via email. You can also speak with him after a sung Mass to find out how your voice can add to the beauty of the sacrifice.
