Sunday Latin Masses in Charlotte

  • St. Thomas Aquinas parish: 11:30am (High Mass)
  • St. Ann parish: 12:30pm (High Mass) – 250 person seating capacity which means (for now) most people will be able to find seating. There will be outside seating.

SAVE THE DATE: Feast of Christ the King – Sunday October 25, 12:30pm (St. Ann parish)

Next Sunday October 25th is the Feast of Christ the King and once again St. Ann will be offering a Eucharistic Procession after the 12:30pm Mass outside the parish. This is a major feast day for the CLMC as promotes the Social Kingship of Christ, His Church, and His rights in society and government.  We will share more details this coming week but there are plans to make this year an even greater procession than in years past (Pray for fair weather!). St. Thomas Aquinas will also offer a Eucharistic Procession after their 11:30am Sunday Mass.

Latin Mass & Traditional News

  • LIVING THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE: Go Trump or Go Lockdown: Michael Matt, editor of the Catholic newspaper The Remnant, has put out an excellent video on the stakes of this election – especially for the Church. As we noted in our Early Voting e-mail on Thursday, the revolutionaries in public office have already taken a swipe at the Church, and by extension the Traditional Latin Mass (while allowing abortion facilities to operate freely). Having seen how effeminate and naturalistic the Church acted during COVID, these authorities may likely do so again unless they are stopped at the polls – including in North Carolina.

  • St. Margaret Mary Alacoque and the Consecration of France to the Sacred Heart: Yesterday, Saturday October 17 was the feast day of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque – the mystic saint who received private revelations from Our Blessed Lord about the importance of the devotion to His Sacred Heart and His request that the King of France consecrate his country to the Sacred Heart. Sadly, King Louis XIV ignored that request, as did his successors, and 100 years later, the French monarchy ended in a bloody revolution which has inspired countless other revolutions since that time – including one attempting to unfold in our country today. Our Lady of Fatima also lamented King Louis XIV refusal when in 1931 she appeared to Sr. Lucia and again asked for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart (which has still not been done according to Our Lady’s Request). This article has a brief summary and ties it into our age with the message of Fatima: http://www.traditionalcatholicpriest.com/2014/06/28/most-sacred-heart-of-jesus-pierced-broken-for-love-of-man/
