Mass of the Holy Spirit

Author: Michael O. Garvey


The opening of the conclave which will elect the next pope will be observed at the University of Notre Dame Monday (April 18) at 5:15 p.m., when the Mass of the Holy Spirit will be celebrated in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart. Rev. Peter Rocca, C.S.C., rector of the Basilica, will preside at the Mass, and sacred music will be provided by the Notre Dame Women’s Liturgical Choir.

The Mass of the Holy Spirit is traditionally celebrated when the papal chair is vacant and invokes God’s grace on the deliberations of the conclave’s cardinal electors.
