Yesterday evening, April 5, the parish of St Vincent Ferrer and St. Catherine of Siena, New York, celebrated the patronal feast of St. Vincent Ferrer with a Solemn Mass in the Dominican Rite.
The setting for the Mass ordinary was John Taverner’s Missa Sancti Wilhelmi devotio, directed by James Wetzel.
“Fear the Lord and give him honor” Revelations 14.7, from the Epistle reading for the feast day, was the topic of the sermon. The words are inscribed on the wall next to St. Vincent Ferrer’s shrine.
