"Indian Rite of Mass" was in full swing at St. Ann’s Church in Toronto, Canada, on Sunday, July 2, 2006…



It should be noted that the event was advertised on the Archdiocese of Toronto website although there is no "Indian Rite" or "Ordo" that has official Vatican approval. Also, there is no exclusively "Indian" religion or culture, as many religions co-exist in that country. The "Mass" concocted in 1969 by the Indian bishops has always been a Hindu-Catholic syncretic hybrid, the version at St. Ann’s being an obvious adaptation for Western audiences.[3] As for dance during Mass, which has always been forbidden, even the Sacred Congregation for Divine Worship, in 1975, said dance "desacralizes" the liturgy, "introducing an atmosphere of profanity."[4]
