Next Friday, December 27th, we’ll be gathering at Sweetest Heart of Mary Church for the Feast of St. John and the Juventutem Michigan Christmas Party.

The picture above is from St. Josaphat Church (which is, together with SHM Church and St. Joseph Church, a part of Detroit’s Mother of Divine Mercy Parish).  It was taken in 2006 and enjoyed great popularity as a “Catholic Meme” in 2012.  St. Josaphat and SHM are presently working together in a “Save Our Steeples” campaign: write-up; online donation-ish.

Each of these parishes will celebrate one or more Traditional Latin Masses of Christmas on December 25th:

St. Ann, Baraga: 9:00 a.m.
Assumption Grotto, Detroit: midnight (César Franck’s Mass in A), 9:30 a.m. (no choir)
St. Benedict Tridentine Community at Assumption Church, Windsor: 2:00 p.m. (Michael Praetorius’ Missa a 8)
St. Edward on the Lake, Lakeport: midnight
Holy Family, Ontonagon: midnight
Holy Rosary, Cedar: midnight
Blessed John XXIII, Lansing: midnight, Missa Cantata
St. Joseph, Detroit: midnight (Mozart’s Mass in G), 9:30 a.m. (no orchestra)
St. Joseph, Jackson: noon
St. Mary, Kalamazoo: 10:00 a.m.
Mount Carmel Center (St. Mary Cathedral), Gaylord: 3:00 p.m.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Grand Rapids: 12:30 p.m.

St. Mary, Morrice, will have midnight Mass at 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 24th.

If you learn of any more, please tweet them at us, and we’ll try to update this post.


We expect this will be one of the most beautiful Advent offerings in the region, this year:

Lesson and Carols and Compline

At 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 22nd, Lansing’s Church of the Resurrection welcomes Voces Jubilantes, an early music treble choir from Ohio directed by Annette Murphy, which will present musical offerings and scripture for the season of Advent.

This will be followed by Compline (night prayer) in the Extraordinary Form sung by the Church of the Resurrection Schola.
