On the glorious day commemorating the final apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima, Portugal and the Miracle of the Sun on October 13, A.D. 1917, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was celebrated in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, (Traditional Latin Mass) Missa Cantata (Sung/High Mass). This was the first time the ancient Liturgy was celebrated at the Rosary Shrine since its inception in A.D. 1984; and was a lovely and holy experience. One couple was overheard to say, “This is the first time we’ve been to a Latin Mass”.

Fr. Paul McDonald offered the Holy Mass and the Arsenault family (Colin, Anthony & John-Paul) served at the altar while Faustina Arsenault provided the chant for the propers of the Mass.
