Feast of St. Augustine

posted Sep 4, 2020, 5:55 AM by Latin Mass Society of Northeast Missouri

Traditional Latin Mass with Fr. Kevin Drew was for the Feast of St. Augustine, Bishop and Doctor of the Church, August 28 at St. Rose of Lima in Novinger.

St. Monica had instilled into the heart of her son Augustine the truths of Christian belief, but the young man fell into bad company and was drawn into heresy. At Milan he met the great bishop Ambrose, who guided his way back into the true Faith. Augustine then returned to North Africa, his birthplace, was ordained to the priesthood, and was consecrated bishop and placed over the see of Hippo at the age of 41. He became the author of enduring Christian classics, and wrote a rule of religious life that strongly influenced the development of Western spirituality. The numerous heresies of his time had in St. Augustine an untiring foe.

“O Lord, I am thy servant; I am thy servant and the son of thy handmaid. Thou hast loosed my bonds. I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving. Let my heart and my tongue praise thee, and let all my bones say ‘Lord, who is like unto Thee?’ Let them say so, and answer thou me and say unto my soul, ‘I am your salvation’ “.

-Saint Augustine of Hippo. Bishop, Confessor, Doctor of the Church (Confessions. Book Nine, Chapter 1).

Rorate Mass

posted Dec 5, 2019, 6:00 AM by Latin Mass Society of Northeast Missouri   [ updated Dec 5, 2019, 6:02 AM ]

Father Drew will once again this year be celebrating a Rorate Mass on Saturday, December 14 at 6:50 pm at St. Joseph Parish in Trenton, MO.  It is celebrated early as the only light in the Church is from candles at the altar.  As the Mass proceeds and sunrise approaches, the church becomes progressively brighter, illumined by the sun as our Faith is illumined by Christ.

The Rorate Mass takes its name from the opening words of the Introit, which comes to us from Isaiah 45:8: Rorate, caeli, desuper, et nubes pluantjustum, aperiatur terra, et germinet Salvatorem, which translates: Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the just; let the earth be opened and bud forth a Saviour.  The Rorate Mass is lit only by candlelight.  Because it is a votive Mass in Mary’s honor, white vestments are worn instead of Advent violet. In the dimly lit setting, priests and faithful prepare to honor the Light of the world, Who is soon to be born, and offer praise to God for the gift of Our Lady.  

The reading and prayers of the Mass foretell the prophecy of the Virgin who would bear a Son called Emmanuel, and call on all to raise the gates of their hearts and their societies to let Christ the King enterasking for the grace to receive eternal life by the merits of the Incarnation and saving Resurrection of Our Lord Mass on Monday .

First Sunday of Advent, Upcoming Day of Recollection

posted Dec 2, 2019, 1:25 PM by Jesse Jobson

The last day of the Thanksgiving holiday brought together a small but joyful group to assist at Holy Mass & welcome back Father Dylan Schrader to St.Rose of Lima in Novinger. Father has been a supportive friend to our LMS over the years. We have now celebrated four consecutive years of monthly Traditional Masses in northeast Missouri. Who'd of 'thunk' it? We are pleased that it was Father Schrader who was with us to celebrate our 48th consecutive!


Known for its devotion to the 1962 Latin Mass and Catholic tradition, the Institute of Christ the King has 80 apostolates worldwide, including one each in Kansas City and St. Louis. On Saturday, December 21, priests from the Missouri apostolates will present a "Day of Recollection" for young adults ages 18 to 35 and celebrate a Solemn High Mass for our entire community at St. Brendan's Church in Mexico Mo.  The Day of Recollection will be from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.  Solemn High Mass is at 11:15 am that same day.

All Souls Day, Upcoming Masses at Novinger

posted Oct 31, 2019, 9:45 AM by Jesse Jobson

From Father Drew, regarding All Souls Day Masses at Trenton:

"Saturday, November 2
is All Souls Day, the day we remember the Church Suffering in Purgatory.  Mass will be offered at 8:30 am.  It will be in Latin, as it is every Saturday and prayers will be provided in English.  Unlike the Solemn High Mass we had on Oct 13, this Mass will be a Low Mass which is quiet and meditative.  Just the server and myself will pray audibly.  Everyone else will pray quietly in their pew, offering their sacrifice in their own heart to their Heavenly Father. 

This beautiful expression of our faith, featuring black vestments and unbleached candles will last a little over a little over 30 minutes.  Directly after the 8:30 Mass, all are welcome to join me in going to St Joseph's cemetery where I will lead a few prayers.  So come to town next Saturday morning and pray for the Poor Souls.  It will be time well spent.

I will offer another Low Mass for  All Souls at 11:30 am on Saturday November 2."


Father Kevin Drew will also celebrate the next Holy Mass scheduled for 4:00 PM, Sunday, November 17 at St. Rose of Lima Church in Novinger. As usual, Our Lady's Holy Rosary is prayed 20 minutes before Mass and a reception with Fr. Drew will follow. This will mark 47 consecutive months the Traditional Mass will be celebrated in northern Missouri!

In addition, we have Fr. Dylan Schrader scheduled to celebrate Holy Mass at St. Rose at 6:00 PM on Sunday, December 1 -- the 1st Sunday of Advent. This will mark four consecutive years of monthly Sunday Traditional Masses in our area. How about that? Our Blessed Mother is making Her Son's Holy Mass available in one of the most remote parts of His Kingdom. Please say a prayer of thanks!

Note: At this point, it is undetermined whether or not we shall have kneelers at Novinger.

Fatima Mass and Rosary Procession

posted Oct 14, 2019, 10:31 AM by Jesse Jobson

What a spiritually perfect Our Lady of Fatima feast day it was in Trenton, MO. on Sunday! More than 150 Catholics from all over northern Missouri assisted at the Solemn High Mass and Rosary procession. Our Dear Lord and His Blessed Mother must have been pleased. Thank you, Father Drew!

It is indeed a striking reality of Holy Mother Church in 2019 that this holy expression can be accomplished by faithful Catholics in a rural community with fewer than 6,000, while at the Vatican, pagan idols are being venerated by placing them in front of Our Lord's Altar during Mass at the anthropocentric Amazon Synod. Confusion abounds. Stay Catholic, my friends. Stay Catholic!
