First Sunday in Advent

posted Dec 6, 2017, 3:00 PM by Latin Mass Society of Northeast Missouri
About 50 Catholics from as far west as Clay County, Missouri (near KC), and as far east as Adams County, Ill. assisted at last night's Traditional Latin Mass at St. Rose of Lima Church in Novinger. What a joyful turnout! As you know, it was our 24th consecutive month with a Sunday Holy Mass at St. Rose. We are so grateful to Father Kevin Drew for driving over from Trenton, MO. Father heard Confession, celebrated Holy Mass, and had dinner with all of us; also included were his mother and two sisters who made the trip to Novinger!

St. Rose, in little Novinger, MO. (population 456) remains the ONLY Latin Mass location in a Diocese encompassing 22,127 miles.  Let us all pray that our 24-month 'proof of concept' with the Holy Mass here in northeast Missouri will prompt our new bishop to 'feed his sheep' in northeast Missouri EVERY SUNDAY!
