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!

Merry Christmas!

2016 All Saint’s Day Mass

On November 1, 2016, Monsignor Chiodo celebrated an evening Mass in the usus antiquior for All Saints Day.  Below are some photos which show the beauty of the form, the church, and the involvement of the dedicated families.

We’re grateful for Monsignor’s dignified prayer, for the servers (under the direction of Andy & Steve), and for the women’s schola who sang the propers of the followers free day and added some appropriate hymns.
