MORNING AND EVENING DEVOTIONS
Enter the broader stream of Catholic liturgy with daily excerpts included from both Lauds and Vespers of the 1960 Breviarum Romanum, the official morning and evening hours of prayer used by clergy and religious throughout the world.

DAILY MEDITATIONS
Learn at the feet of Catholic spiritual masters each day, with devout meditations curated exclusively from saints and scholars who prayed and loved the Ancient Mass, from the Early Church to the early 1900s.

A Protestant Goes to Mass…

As someone who only fairly recently in his life started attending Latin Mass, I can related to awe this man felt at his first couple Latin Masses.

Attendance Increases, Average Age Decreases at St. Anthony TLM

Since the Traditional Latin Mass has moved upstairs in Sept 2017, we have seen a 140% increase in mass attendance, while the average age (as estimated during July 2019) is 28.6 years old.  

Many young people are serving, sure, but we have many young families with young children praying weekly in the pews.  

If you are interested in learning more about the Traditional Latin Mass, or maybe you want to explore if it’s a good option for your children’s religious formation, join us on a Sunday at 5pm, and be sure to read this article before you attend.

Traditional Baptism

In March 2019, the Chapel at Mercy College of Health Science had its first Traditional Baptism!

Thanks to Fr. Windschitl for welcoming Baby Helena into Church!

Mass with Bishop Pates

On December 2, 2018, +His Excellency, Bishop Pates, joined the Traditional Latin Mass Community for our weekly celebration and our monthly potluck.

It was an honor for us to have him join us, and we appreciate that he has allowed us to celebrate this weekly since 2007.  He preached and sat in choir, and it was the first time – to our knowledge – that a +Bishop has joined us for the Sunday celebration.

Ad multos annos, +Bishop Pates, and many blessings in retirement!

Traditional Baptism

Back in January 2019, a local family baptized their newborn according to the ancient baptismal rite at St. Augustin’s by the Reverend Christopher Pisut.  

This marks 5 different local diocesan churches which have celebrated the Traditional Baptismal Rite in the past 12 months:  St. Anthony’s, Basilica of St. John, St. Augustin, St. Theresa, and Mercy College of Health Science Chapel.

If you are interested in having your child baptized, reach out to Una Voce Des Moines, and we can assist in preparing the priest and a booklet for you.
