The Ascension of the Our Lord
1st Class, White
Gloria; Credo; Preface of the Ascension; Proper Communicantes


Concéde, quæsumus, omnípotens Deus : ut, qui hodiérna die Unigénitum tuum Redemptórem nostrum ad cælos ascendísse crédimus; ipse quoque mente in cæléstibus habitémus. Per eúmdem Dóminum.

Let us pray.

Grant, we beseech thee, Almighty God : that like as we do believe thine only-begotten Son our Saviour to have ascended into the heavens; so we may also in heart and mind thither ascend, and with him continually dwell. Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity.


NOTE: at the principal Mass the Paschal Candle is extinguished at the end of the Gospel and removed at the end of Mass.


Please note: on Thursday 21st May there will be Latin Vespers at 6.4pm in St Mary's RC Cathedral, Edinurgh (Scotland) to celebrate this feast.

All are welcome to join the Schola for this opportunity to pray with the ancient music of the Church.

This is the third of monthly sung Vespers sung on Thursdays around 7pm by the new Edinburgh Schola. Please see for updates and further information.
