We wanted to bring your attention to an upcoming event of some significance later this month. The Paulus Institute for the Propagation of Sacred Liturgy is once again hosting the annual Nellie Gray Mass in remembrance and for the repose of the soul of pro-life leader and March for Life founder Nellie Gray after the 2017 March for Life in Washington, D.C.
The Mass will be offered on Friday, January 27, at 3PM, at St. Mary Mother of God Catholic Church (located at 5th and H Sts. NW in Washington.) Fr. Paul Scalia, son of late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia will offer the Mass according to the 1962 Missal. The Vox in Rama Choir from the Church of the Holy Innocents in New York City will provide music for the Mass.
The Annual Nellie Gray Mass has become one of the premier opportunities for traditionally-minded Catholics from across the nation to meet and to worship together. For more information, please visit the Paulus Institute website.
A flyer for the event can be downloaded here for distribution purposes. Please spread the word!

A very important event , indeed. The connection to Antonin Scalia, through his son’s participation in the Mass, and the name of the Church where the Mass takes place and the highly relevant name of the home parish of the choir, remind me that God works His Good Will through such as these.
My children sang in the choir at the specific Mass, two years ago. What a blessing for our family.
It was the most beautiful and glorious Mass, I had ever been to.
Our anniversary is on Jan. 27th. We shall be there once again in DC for that Mass.
Thanks for sharing this. I am looking forward to going for the first time. I am glad the time is shifted to 3pm, in the past we missed this because our bus home left at the same time as the Mass.
