Advent Mission Time Change Tonight & Wednesday

Laudetur Iesus Christus and blessed feast of St. Lucy. The Advent Mission at St. Thomas Aquinas parish tonight and tomorrow will start 30 minutes later than previously advertised. The customized talks (men, and youth) begin at 6:30pm (not 6pm), and the general talk begins at 7:30pm (not 7pm).

Tonight’s men’s talk will be in Parish Office Room D. The main mission talk at 7:30pm will be in the church. Confessions begin at 6pm each night.

These changes work well especially for tomorrow as one can attend the Ember Wednesday Latin Mass at 6pm St. Ann and still make it for the general talk at St. Thomas Aquinas. Please see the updated schedule below.

God Bless,

Charlotte Latin Mass Community


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:

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

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.  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!
