Ad Altare Dei.org is the online home for The Gregorian Society of Baltimore. The society was founded to preserve and foster the Traditional Latin Mass,Traditional sacraments and ceremonies of the Roman Rite within the Catholic Archdiocese of Baltimore. The Society is loyal to the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church and functions with the approval of the Baltimore Archdiocese.
The Latin Mass is reffered to as the "Traditional Latin Mass","Tridentine Latin Mass"or the "Extrodinary Form". Prior to Vatican II it was the universal Mass of the Catholic Church; in the years following Vatican II and the introduction of the Novus Ordo or New Order (the New Liturgy) it since then has been described as the "old" Mass. Today people are still drawn to The Mass by because of its beauty and reverence. The Traditional Latin Mass can be found every Sunday 11:30 AM at St Alphonsus Church downtown Baltimore The Mass is also offered on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 12:10 PM and on Holy Days of Obligation at 7 PM.
