Laudetur Iesus Christus and blessed Whit Ember Saturday! Tomorrow is the octave of Pentecost, or Trinity Sunday. Fisheaters.com has a good write up and reflection for the day: https://www.fisheaters.com/customseastertide9.html
On an obscure note, this is the one Sunday of the year where the Red Latin-English booklets has the correct propers for Sunday Mass as they are for Trinity Sunday. That’s why all other days of the year, one needs a paper print out of the propers to use with this booklet.
Sunday Latin Mass at St. Ann: St. Ann will have its 12:30pm Latin Mass tomorrow, with the same protocols in place as prior weekends. Due to the heat, if any of you have a spare 8’x8’ tent to share, we may invite you to set it up for other people. We had about 4 tents last week, and may need a 2-3 others (nothing bigger than 8×8’). The parish may also have some bottled water. Hopefully this setup will not continue as we go into the summer heat.
Upcoming St. Ann Masses:
Thursday June 11, Feast of Corpus Christi, – St. Ann parish- Solemn High Mass, (TBD) – we’ll let you know once confirmed.
Friday June 19, Feast of the Sacred Heart – 5pm Holy Hour of Reparation for the sins against human sexuality, 7pm Traditional Latin Mass (organized by St. Ann Respect Life)
St. Thomas Aquinas parish update (PLEASE READ):
IMPORTANT NEWS: Beginning the week of June 14, St. Thomas Aquinas parish is permanently moving its normal Wednesday 7pm Latin Mass to Thursday at 7pm. This will be a permanent change.
- The last Wednesday Latin Mass at St. Thomas will be this Wednesday June 10, 7pm.
- The first Thursday Latin Mass at St. Thomas Aquinas will be June 18, 7pm.
We don’t know all the factors but heard that it will give the faithful a Thursday evening Mass (so desperately needed!) and to occur on a night without a competing Latin Mass (i.e. St. Ann). It will be a High Mass. Incidentally, if you aren’t attending the High Masses at St. Thomas, you are missing some beautiful chant and polyphony.

(N.B. The Archbishop’s letter should not surprise longtime Latin Mass attendees, as many of the modernists in the Church , influenced by freemasonry tried to suppress the Traditional Latin Mass in the 1960s and 1970s.)
