Laudetur Iesu Christus! We have two events to share with you this weekend and next:
- 1st Sunday Latin Mass at Sacred Heart parish Salisbury 4pm: We’ve been forgetful in posting these, but the Salisbury Latin Mass Community continues to organize a 1st Sunday Latin Mass at Sacred Heart each 1st Sunday at 4pm. This Sunday’s celebrant is Fr. Barone and it will be a High Mass. After Mass there will be a reception in Bransfield Hall. Please bring a favorite hors d’oeuvres or snack to share with others. Fr. Barone has graciously agreed to attend the social and be available to answer any questions you may have related to the Latin Mass.
- Special play/presentation on the life of Venerable Augustus Tolton – next Friday & Saturday: Next weekend, St. Luke Productions, a Catholic theater group will be presenting a play on the life of Ven. Augustus Tolton. We understand the play show Ven. Tolton and his mentor, Fr. McGirr celebrating the Latin Mass (fictionally of course). The play will be on Friday June 7 (7:30pm) and Saturday June 8 (3pm and 7:30pm) at The Great Aunt Stella Center, 926 Elizabeth Ave, Charlotte ($10 adults/$5 children). For those readers in Greensboro, the play will be up there on June 10/11 (see article below). See article below for more details.
If you’re not familiar with him, Ven. Tolton was a former slave and the first black priest ordained to the priesthood in the U.S. He died in Chicago at age 43 in 1897. Like all priests of his day, he offered the Traditional Latin Mass his entire priesthood and help establish several parishes in Illinois. His postulator for the cause of his canonization is none other than Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago, Joseph Perry, who is a friend to the Latin Mass faithful and offers the Traditional Latin Mass frequently across the U.S.
