Extraordinary Form Sung Mass – 17th Sunday After Pentecost (Oct. 1, 2017)

The first day of October falls on a Sunday this year, and what a fitting time it is to begin the month with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite (a.k.a. Traditional Latin Mass or Tridentine Mass). The Seventeenth Sunday After Pentecost also falls on this Sunday.

The Cebuano Summorum Pontificum Society invites you to our Missa cantata (Sung Mass) at 4:00 P.M. on October 1, 2017, at the Adoration Chapel of the Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Parish Church (Capitol Parish) along N. Escario Street, Cebu City.

The Holy Sacrifice will be sung by Cebu Archdiocesan Media Liaison Officer Msgr. Joseph Tan, who will be assisted by the Schola Gregoriana of Cebu.

The Society will be praying the Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Latin at 3:15 P.M.   The Rosary is a devotional prayer that holds the highest esteem among other devotional prayers.

Thereafter, the Society will pray None (Mid-afternoon Prayer) of the Divine Office in the Ordinary Form also in Latin. The Divine Office (a.k.a. Liturgy of the Hours) is liturgical prayer and takes precedence — in value, efficacy, and dignity — over devotional prayers (such as the Rosary) and other private prayers because the Liturgy is the prayer of our Lord Himself which he put into the mouth of the Church, His Bride.

We encourage you to come early so you can take part in these devotional and liturgical prayers prior to Mass.

Please prepare yourself to receive our Lord in Holy Communion during the Mass. To do that, you need to remain in a state of grace — go to Confession!

See you this Sunday!

    1. The schedule of Sunday Masses celebrated in the main church is already full. That’s one of the main reasons for celebrating our EF Mass in the Adoration Chapel. Also, the congregation that usually assists at our EF Mass isn’t that large enough yet to justify the use of the main church. Have you assisted at our EF Masses? If not, please come this Sunday.


  1. Yes Sir, I had attended once. I used to attend the TLM by the SSPX in Mandaue for I’m from Lapu-lapu and it’s the nearet. I’ll attend again this Sunday. Btw, our mass guide is confusing for it doesnt have the instructions when to kneel, stand and sit.


    1. Are you referring to the Order of Mass that we use at our EF Mass at Capitol Parish? If so, we deliberately excluded the instructions for when the congregation sits, kneels, or stands, because such instructions do not exist in the Rubrics or in the official liturgical books. Practices vary from place to place, too. Please don’t feel bad about not knowing when to sit, stand, or kneel. You may stand all throughout, if that helps you pray, or kneel all throughout, or sit all throughout (although it makes more sense to kneel during the Canon). 🙂


    1. We hope you will continue to assist at our Masses and support our efforts to make the Extraordinary Form more accessible to all people in the Archdiocese. I look forward to seeing even just one parish in your area celebrating an EF Mass regularly every Sunday.
