Laudetur Iesus Christus! We have a few events to share with you:
St. Ann Latin Mass on Friday January 19 at 7:00 AM is canceled.
Feast of St. Agnes celebration – after 12:30pm Latin Mass this Sunday January 21
Sunday is the 3rd Sunday after Epiphany and in the traditional calendar it’s also the feast of St. Agnes (one of the great virgin-martyrs). As her name is a Latin derivative of Angus, she is frequently pictured with a lamb, and even the blessing of lambs occurred on her feast day. She died on January 21 under Diocletian’s persecution in a most heroic manner and to celebrate we will be hosting some extra lamb-themed cookies and treats after 12:30 PM Sunday Mass at St. Ann. Can we have some volunteers bring some treats, drinks to help support this? (They don’t have to be lamb-themed).
