Advent chants, choral compositions by great symphonists, and even popular music. On Saturday, December 10th, the Cathedral of the Nativity of Our Lady will host a special Advent Choral Vespers service, featuring the Diocesan Choir and the Cathedral Schola of Macau. The initiative aims to prepare local Catholics for one of the most fundamental mysteries of the Catholic faith: the Nativity of Jesus.
The pastoral care team in charge of the Portuguese-speaking community at the Cathedral parish invited elderly parishioners to a social event – the first of its kind aimed at the Lusophone flock – which sought to answer some of the concerns that were raised by local Catholics during the diocesan phase of the Synod of Bishops.
The love towards the saint and requests for his intercession has been increasing day by day among the faithful.
Holy Week is for millions of Catholics worldwide a time for seclusion and reflection, and Macau is no exception. The Cathedral parish will once again organize a spiritual retreat as well as initiatives to help the younger generations better understand the mystery of the Resurrection during this Lenten season of prayer and spiritual enlightenment.
The Cathedral Parish of the Nativity of our Lady opened its doors for the first time after months of renovations for the 6:00 pm Mass on Saturday, September 4, giving parishioners their first glimpse of its newly renovated interiors.
With a clean facade and a new ceiling, but without the pipe organ that a benefactor offered the Diocese of Macau. The Macau Cathedral will welcome the faithful once again starting Saturday, eleven months after it closed its doors to be submitted to renovation works. A Solemn Mass in Cantonese and Portuguese, this Saturday afternoon, will kick off the celebrations of the Solemnity of the Nativity of Our Lady, the Cathedral’s parish feast.
