Mid July update

Laudetur Iesu Christus and Happy Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel which commemorates when Our Lady gave St. Simon Stock the Brown Scapular. If you’re not already enrolled in the Brown Scapular, please see Fr. Reid (or your own pastor) about it.

Latin Mass update:

Mass cancellations this week: The 6pm Latin Mass Wednesday and 7am Latin Mass Friday at St. Ann are both canceled while Fr. Reid is away.

No Liturgy & Fraternity in July: Since the Wednesday Latin Mass at St. Ann is canceled, the normal Liturgy & Fraternity for this week is also canceled.

Introduction to the Latin Mass at St. John Neumann parish in Charlotte this Sunday, July 21 at 12 noon: Seminarian Matthew Dimock will provide an overview of the history and ritual of the “Mass that formed the Saints.” Refreshments will be served.


New Sunday Traditional Latin Mass begins in Tryon:

We are pleased to report that St. John the Baptist in Tryon (2 hours west of Charlotte, or 1.25 hours from Gastonia) will now begin offering an 8:30am Sunday High Mass beginning Sunday August 4. This is a welcome news for the community out in the mountains which currently lacks a Sunday Latin Mass. Please keep Fr. Christian in your prayers as he begins to offer this Mass weekly.


Support Carmelite Hermits

Lastly, since today is the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, we wanted to share an opportunity to support a traditional Carmelite community called the Hermits of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.

Some of you may recall meeting the Hermits in 2017.  They are a new group of Carmelite hermits based in Fairfield, PA.   Please offer a prayer for the Hermits on their feast day. Additionally, they subsist solely on donations and are always grateful for any financial support: https://www.eremitaednmc.org/
