Pictures of the Traditional Solemn Mass at St. Cecilia's Church in Brooklyn


These are pictures of the Solemn Mass at the Church of St. Cecilia in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. This Mass was to celebrate the 110th Anniversary of consecration. The Te Deum was sung at the end as an act of Thanksgiving. The consecration crosses were incensed (as they were when the church was consecrated) and the candles were beautifully decorated. The singing by the Sacred Ministers was wonderful. The sermon was very moving. There were about 200 people in attendance. There were 13 servers helping.  

The pictures below were taken by a faithful in the congregation.
