Traditional Latin Mass

Mass for St. Michael the Archangel, Friday September 29th at 7pm at St. Mary's Church, Achill.

For the first time in more than 50 years, St. Mary's Church will be celebrating a traditional Latin High Mass for the feast of St. Michael The Archangel.

The sung Mass will be celebrated at 7pm on Friday September 29th at the High Altar in St. Mary's (there will not be a 7pm Mass at St. James that evening).

Father Paul Acton will be the celebrant and music will be lead by a small men's Schola singing some traditional Gregorian chant and classic Catholic hymns.

This is a wonderful opportunity to experience the very same Catholic Mass that all the saints, including St. Padre Pio (d. 1968), and the only Mass that our Catholic ancestors in this parish ever knew.
