Duruflé Requiem Mass

Saturday, Nov. 2, 2019
2:30 pm
Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul

“Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine”

The Cathedral Parish invites you to gather in communal remembrance of our loved ones who have gone before us.

The liturgical music ministry wishes to remember and pray for our deceased loved ones with Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem, to be sung as part of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

In order to experience the full beauty of this masterwork for chorus and orchestra, we are looking for donors to help financially support this music for the Mass. All who donate will be given the opportunity to have the names of deceased loved ones included in the In Memoriam section of the worship aid for this Mass.  There is no suggested offering to add names to the worship and and any offering would be greatly appreciated.

If you would like to be a sponsor for this Mass, the donation for an Orchestral seat is $400.

Please note that all names for the intention of the Mass must be received by 3:00pm on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 to be entered into the Liturgy Guide for Saturday’s Mass.
