Pictures from the Pontifical Solemn Mass of the Lord’s Supper at St Aloysius

That's me on the left in the front, about to have my feet washed

I said I would let you know when the photos from last Thursday night’s ceremonies at St Aloysius were available and here they are. All the pictures from this week at the Catholic Community of Blessed John Henry Newman are here.

    question: how common is it for a suburban parish to have priest with liturgical deacon and subdeacon? I’ve seen it at the cathedral, but otherwise only some anglicans

    Well, the deacon and subdeacon at the mass last Thursday at St Aloysius were both priests serving those liturgical roles. Pope Paul VI abolished the role of subdeacon in the Latin rite, but of course the Extraordinary form requires it. Others on this blog will know more. At the Cathedral, for solemn occasions, they do often make a point of having z transitional deacon do the Gospel and the other specifically diagonal roles. It will be interesting to see what effect the reintroduction of a permanent diaconate will have.
