Event: Bishop Schneider to offer Blessed Karl pontifical High Mass

Last year, His Excellency Bishop Athanasius Schneider visited the U.S. in October for a nine-day schedule of pontifical Masses and lectures, including offering the annual Mass in Washington, D.C., on the feast of Blessed Karl of Austria. This month the bishop will again visit the U.S. for several events and offer a pontifical High Mass on 21 October, at 1 p.m., for the feast of Blessed Karl.

In addition to the parish schola of men singing the propers of the Mass in Gregorian chant, the choir "Musikanten" will sing "Missa a oito vozes", an eight-voice 1721 setting by the Portuguese composer João Rodrigues Esteves, in honor of the centennial of Our Lady's appearances at Fatima.
