Last Wednesday (December 18, 2013), the Rorate Solemn High Mass in the Dominican Rite was celebrated at Star of the Sea Church for the very first time. The celebrant was Fr. Anselm Ramelow, O.P., assisted once again by the friars from the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology (Berkeley, CA) and St. Dominic’s Church (Benicia, CA). Star of the Sea was the 2nd church in the entire state of California (the other one was St. Stephen the Martyr in Sacramento) to have offered this kind of Mass!! Many thanks to the Dominican Friars for their assistance in making this possible! Below are some photos taken by Jay Balza and Anna Guerra (more pictures can be viewed at our photo gallery) and a YouTube video of the entire mass.
