An Orchestral Mass was offered in Charlotte, North Carolina at St. Thomas Aquinas Church on January 6 for the Feast of the Epiphany. Mozart’s Missa brevis No. 5, also known as the Sparrow Mass, was sung by the Carolina Catholic Chorale, accompanied by chamber orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Thomas Savoy.

The Missa Solemnis was offered by Fr. Jason Christian of the Diocese of Charlotte. Father Matthew Kauth served as deacon and St. Thomas Aquinas pastor Fr. Patrick Winslow served as subdeacon for the mass.
