Easter Masses, Laetare Sunday, Diocesan Mass

posted Apr 10, 2019, 7:54 PM by Latin Mass Society of Northeast Missouri


The number 40 is a holy number in the Bible and, therefore, in the Catholic Church, who is its author. April will mark the 40th consecutive monthly Sunday Mass in Northeast Missouri! Our Blessed Mother and two holy priests are providing our 40th and 41st consecutive Sunday Masses at humble St. Rose of Lima Church in Novinger, MO.

4:00 PM, SUNDAY, APRIL 28, (the Octave of Easter, Low Sunday) with Father Kevin Drew, pastor of St Joseph's Parish in Trenton, MO.

4:00 PM, SUNDAY, MAY 5, (Good Shepard Sunday) with Father Arnaud Devillers, FSSP, pastor of St. Rose of Lima Parish in Quincy, IL.

As we have done for the first 39 Sunday Masses, the Holy Rosary will be prayed 20 minutes before Mass and a reception with these good priests will follow Mass in the Parish Hall. PLEASE SAY A HAIL MARY to thank Our Blessed Mother for this supernatural gift of Grace!

“Of all the types and shadows of the Old Testament, none is as pervasive and important as the shadows revealed in the relationship between "forty," and the fulfillment of promises.” (ecclesia.org)

Laetare Sunday

Our thanks to Father Drew! A Holy Latin Mass on Laetare Sunday in northeast Missouri was only possible because of this good, 'missionary' priest. As you know, priests must be imported from other Diocese. The sermon was inspiring & instructive. About 40 of the faithful assisted at Holy Mass, including a BUNCH of kids! You'll see from the pictures, they thoroughly enjoyed the food at the reception; especially the dessert. A couple of Truman students even entertained us on the 'ancient' piano -- including music from JS Bach! Impressive. Thank you Dear Lord for this holy mission.

Monthly Diocesan Mass

One of the servers (Aiden Talerico) who 'trained' & served right here at St. Rose in Novinger helped the Inst. of Christ the King with a Lenten event last Saturday at Fr. Dylan Schrader's St. Brendan Parish in Mexico, MO. Fr. Schrader is continuing in this Diocese what was begun right here in rural northeast Missouri Have no doubt: TRADITION IS THE FUTURE!
