Dear Traditionally-minded friends,

Good evening! A special thanks to Fr. Chicoine for celebrating the TLM this evening, and to Fr. Pisut for announcing this news (see official announcement below) that will affect our TLM community. 

On behalf of Una Voce Des Moines, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to St. Anthony’s and Msgr. Chiodo, and all of the associate pastors who have celebrated the TLM over the years – most recently, Fr. Dolan – for their steadfast commitment to the traditional mass, the traditional sacraments, and our community. We will greatly miss the St Anthony community. 

Ever since last summer, when the motu proprio was issued, His Excellency has made it clear that the TLM community was an important part of the Diocese of Des Moines. 

This move to St. Augustin demonstrates the diocese’s ongoing commitment to providing stable pastoral care to the TLM community, for which we are all grateful. 

I am grateful to Fr. Pisut for his willingness to accept our young and growing community into his well-established parish.

The leaders of Una Voce Des Moines and the TLM community look forward to working  together with Fr. Pisut and St. Augustin to make this transition as smooth as possible. 

Wishing you and yours a blessed Mothers Day!

Oremus pro invicem,

Bryan Gonzalez
