Advent Mission with FSSP Priests – St. Thomas Aquinas Parish (December 13 – 15)


Laudetur Iesus Christus!

We are pleased to share that St. Thomas Aquinas parish has graciously invited two Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) priests to give a special Advent parish mission from Tuesday December 13 – Thursday December 15. The schedule will feature a mission talk as well as confessions. Additionally as a bonus, each night before the mission, the priests will give a customized talk on separate nights for men, youth, and women. We can’t express enough the blessing of having these priests – who offer the Latin Mass exclusively – to give a mission and a few talks. We encourage everyone to take advantage of this wonderful event.

The mission priests are Fr. Joseph Portzer, FSSP, and Fr. Martin Adams, FSSP.

The schedule is as follows:

*** Confessions at 6pm each night ***

Tuesday December 13

6:30pm – Men’s Talk

7:30pm – Mission (open to all)

Wednesday December 14

6:30pm – Youth Talk (suited for high school age youth – parents discretion)

7:30pm – Mission (open to all)

Thursday December 15

6pm – Women’s Talk

7pm – Latin Mass (open to all)

8pm – Mission (open to all)

For those new to the Latin Mass, the Fraternity of St. Peter is a congregation of priests who offer the Latin Mass exclusively and staff chapels and parishes throughout North America and the world. Two members of our community and St. Ann parish are enrolled in the FSSP seminary in Nebraska. In prior years, the CLMC has hosted FSSP priests to give talks and most recently asked Bishop Jugis to consider inviting the FSSP into the diocese full time as part of our Synod request.  We are grateful St. Thomas Aquinas parish for offering this timely mission and also a wonderful opportunity to better acquaint us with the charism of the FSSP priests, many who maintain close ties and friendships with our diocesan priests.
