Advent Mission with FSSP Priests – Begins Tomorrow December 13-15 (St. Thomas Aquinas)

Laudetur Iesus Christus and blessed feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe! Just a reminder that tomorrow Tuesday December 13 begins the important Advent mission at St. Thomas Aquinas parish that you won’t want to miss.

As you may recall, the 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 each evening. 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:

Tuesday December 13

6pm – Men’s Talk

7pm – Mission (open to all)

Wednesday December 14

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

7pm – 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.  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.

In closing, if there is one liturgical season often overlooked, it is often Advent – eclipsed by the secular world of materialism, and yet this week we have a wonderful opportunity to reestablish our spiritual lives in this important season through this Advent mission. We encourage everyone to attend and hope to see you there!
