Feasts of Christ the King & All Saints/All Souls

Laudetur Iesus Christus! Thank you to everyone who supported and attended Thursday’s Pontifical Mass & talk by His Excellency Bishop Schneider. We’ll hope to send a recap of the event in the days ahead (and with audio and possibly video of his talks) and hope you found the event edifying and inspiring.


Christ the King Feast is tomorrow!

We just wanted to remind you of our Christ the King Eucharistic Procession tomorrow Sunday October 29 – 12:30pm Latin High Mass at 12:30pm at St. Ann, with the procession immediately after Mass. Please bring your images/statues, etc. of your favorite royal saints (venerable, beatified, or canonized). After the procession, we’ll conclude with prayers to consecration of the human race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which carries a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions.


3 feasts this week

This coming week also marks sort of a triumvirate of feasts as Christ the King honors the Church Militant (the faithful on earth), All Saints November 1, honors Church Triumphant (faithful in heaven), and All Souls November 2, commemorates the Church Penitent (faithful being purified in purgatory). With that, below is the Latin Mass schedule for All Saints/All Souls.
