Moving toward the Unity
#1
Solemn Vespers with incense and candlelight are now celebrated in a lovely setting each Sunday at 3:00 PM in St. Clement's (Episcopal) Church, 20th and Cherry Sts., in Center City Philadelphia. The traditional Liber Usualis based on the Breviarium Romanum is employed. A small schola is forming under the direction of Bernard Kunkel, Associate Organist at St. Clement's, to sing the antiphons and hymns in Gregorian chant and alternate with the congregation in the chanting of the psalms of Vespers according to the traditional  (pre-1960) calendar and employing the Solemnes method. Texts of Vespers in Latin and English are provided for the congregation.
New singers for the schola are most welcome, even if they can only participate occasionally. Rehearsals for the schola are at 2:00 PM. each Sunday. Traditional Latin Vespers at St. Clement's just started this Advent. It is hoped that the size of the schola and the congregation can be expanded gradually.
Vespers  (which may be attended by itself) is followed by traditional Benediction (also in Latin) and novena prayers to Our Lady Of Clemency. The three services together are less than an hour in length.
The Rev'd W. Gordon Reid, Rector of St. Clement's, welcomes visitors to Solemn Vespers and extends a special invitation to members of the Latin Liturgy Association, Inc. and their friends. St. Clement's is “an Anglo-Catholic parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania.” The telephone number is 215 563 1876. The website is www.s-clements.org
Thank you for giving this message your attention. Deus Pater Omnipotens sit nobis propitius et clemens!
