Many Blessings; Next Mass With a Newly Ordained Priest

posted Aug 2, 2019, 8:50 AM by Latin Mass Society of Northeast Missouri
What multiple blessing we received last Sunday! An amazing group of close to 60 of the faithful assisted at Holy Latin Mass at St. Rose of Lima in Novinger.  Following Holy Mass, we recited the beautiful Litany of the Precious Blood.  Then, after the Litany, Christopher Scearce received the Benedictine oblature ceremony from Father Kevin Drew.  Our Dear Lord, through His Holy Mother, continues to provide us with the Sanctifying Graces of these special Sundays.

A few of the girls from our LMS attended the Young Girls' Camp at the Institute of Christ the King in Wassau, WI this past week.  Along the way, they stopped to visit (and for a meal) with a former Truman State University graduate and LMS member, Page Karls, and her family, who are from that area.  It has been said that they had a very fun time while still deepening their Catholic faith.

Father Stephen Shumacher, a newly-ordained priest of the St. Louis Archdiocese, has graciously agreed to be our newest 'missionary' priest to travel to northeast Missouri to celebrate Holy Latin Mass.  Father Schumacher will celebrate Holy Mass at 4:00 PM, Sunday, August 11 at St. Rose of Lima Church in Novinger, MO.  We are SO BLESSED that Father will also be administering his 'First Blessing' to us immediately after Holy Mass.  Our Blessed Mother's Holy Rosary will be prayed 20 minutes before Mass & a reception with Father Schumacher will follow Holy Mass in the Church Hall.  We thank our dear colleague, Regina Morris of the Latin Liturgical Association, for telling us about Father Schumacher.  Our Blessed Mother did the rest! Please be with us to welcome Father to northeast Missouri!
