The Traditional Latin Mass calendar is different than the calendar for the "ordinary" Mass. Checking the familiar throwaway pew missalette and trying to match it with your new 1962 Missal will not work. Below is a guide for which Mass is being celebrated. Scroll through to the date you are looking for. Many days the priest has the option to choose which Mass to celebrate and we have listed Father's choice for Epiphany. He reserves the right to change it if needed, though, if, for instance, we would need to celebrate a Mass for a new Pope being elected or something like that. Scroll down further on the page to see a chart of when to sit, stand, genuflect and kneel at Mass, too. Note that there are differences in that regard between the Low and High Masses.
This is the "key" to finding the Mass in the Missal. Each missal has different page numbers so those are not included. Daily Mass often goes by the date and can (usually) be found in the back half of the book. Sundays are usually found in the front part of the book.
["comm:" shows that we "commemorate" another Saint or two by adding three prayers to the "regular" day's prayers. These are the "collect" the "secret" and the "postcommunion" prayers.]
Strike the webmaster three times while reading the above captions!
* Note a change of Mass for Sunday, October 4. We will celebrate the External Solemnity of Our Lady of the Rosary (see the Mass of October 7) with a commemoration of the 18th Sunday after Pentecost. Sorry for the mistake in the schedule printed below.
