The Mass   This term is regularly used to designate worship in which the Holy Sacrament of the Altar is celebrated, and Holy Communion is offered.   This usage of the term “Mass” in a Lutheran setting is in accord with Article XXIV of the Apology of the Augsburg Confession:   “We do not abolish the Mass, but religiously maintain and defend it.  For among us masses are celebrated every Lord=s Day and on the other festivals, in which the Sacrament is offered to those who wish to use it, after they have been examined and absolved.”  

Solemn Mass
refers to the mass with musical chant settings.  At St. Paul’s we use The Lutheran Hymnal, page 15.  

Low Mass
refers to spoken mass, usually held on weekdays.
