July Mass and Investiture

posted Jul 19, 2019, 6:05 AM by Latin Mass Society of Northeast Missouri
The LMS mission continues in northeast Missouri with the Traditional Latin Mass scheduled for 4:00 PM, Sunday, July 28 at the increasingly-traditional St. Rose of Lima Church in Novinger. If you recall, it wasn't that long ago the Sanctuary was covered in RED carpeting with NO Communion rail. Father Kevin Drew, pastor of St. Joseph's Parish in the KC Diocese will celebrate Holy Mass for us. Thank you, Father!

We are also so proud to announce that Christopher Scearce, one of our good LMS members, has been accepted as a Benedictine Oblate Novitiate by the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, in Gower, MO. Fr. Drew has been so kind as to agree to perform the investiture ceremony following Mass!  The investiture ceremony is quite brief and all interested are invited to stay after Holy Mass to witness.

This will be the second Benedictine investiture ceremony celebrated at St. Rose of Lima Church. Two other LMS members, who have just recently moved to Florida, Casey and Rachel Dillon, had their investiture ceremony (in private) at St. Rose last year following Mass. Deo Gratias!

Our Blessed Mother's Holy Rosary is prayed 20 minutes before Mass and a reception with Father Drew will follow the 'Mass of the Ages' in the Parish Hall. Please be with us. It is joyful to have Our Blessed Lord's Holy Mass followed by good fellowship on a Summer's evening in God's beautiful countryside.
