Back on March 19, 2012, members of Juventutem Michigan gathered for our inaugural Mass & dinner – beginning with that day’s Missa Cantata at St. Joseph, Detroit. We have regularly returned in the years since then, including 2014, when the above-picture was taken. 🙂
It has been great to learn this week that Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron has invited the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest to take up ministry at St. Joseph Church, Detroit! We look forward to their arrival this October, shortly after the 12th anniversary of the re-inauguration of the Traditional Latin Mass at St. Josaphat through the blessing of Cd. Maida and the efforts of many lay persons and clerics! (Some initial details have been made available here, on the Mother of Divine Mercy Facebook page.)
As the Producer of Extraordinary Faith has said elsewhere on Facebook, the Archdiocese of Detroit is blessed to have seen such a great increase in the availability of the Traditional Latin Mass in recent years. Including:
– Weekly Sunday morning Masses for the Oakland County Latin Mass Association at the Academy of the Sacred Heart (Bloomfield Hills, MI).
– Monthly First Friday Masses (including this Friday, September 2nd) at Old St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Greektown.
– Monthly First Saturday Masses at St. Anthony Catholic Church, Temperance.
– Occasional Sunday Masses (it is hoped) at St. Paul Albanian Catholic Church in Rochester Hills, beginning October 2nd.
It will be great to add the labors of the Canons of the ICRSS to the efforts that many are already making in our region. 🙂
We encourage any friends to join St. Joseph Church in celebration at St. Joseph Oktoberfest, in a few weeks’ time!
Please pray for our alums, Paul McKown and Marcelo de Oliveira, as they begin their second year of seminary studies for the Institute in a little more than a week’s time!
