LET THE BISHOP KNOW – KEEP THE LATIN MASS IN THE DIOCESE OF LAFAYETTE-IN-INDIANA!

Dear friends:

 

Our bishop recently announced that he is taking a general survey of all Catholics in the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana concerning the state of our local Church.  To quote from the website: “Bishop Doherty is eager to understand your thoughts and experiences with the Catholic Church, Schools and Healthcare Facilities in the Diocese.”

We highly encourage all our “parishioners” of the St. John Bosco Latin Mass Community to fill out the form as listed on the website. PLEASE MENTION in the additional information section at the end of the survey your appreciation of the availability of a regular Latin Mass in our diocese. Something along the lines of “we are thankful that the bishop has provided for a regular Tridentine Latin Mass in the Diocese of Lafayette, and we hope that the bishop may find it possible to establish a parish where the Latin Mass may be offered on a regular weekly basis, as well as on feast days.”

Be charitable, but be insistent. And please tell your friends to fill out the survey and mention likewise how much they appreciate having the opportunity to regularly attend a Latin mass. The more replies for the Latin mass, the better. The bishop wants to understand our thoughts.  Let’s make them known.

The link to the survey is here.

Happy Birthday, Summorum Pontificum!

Summorum Pontificum turns 7 today – that is, the motu proprio was released world-wide on this day. SP didn’t go into effect until September 14th of 2007, but Fr. Roberts will be celebrating High Mass for that Sunday at our regular time, so please be sure to join us!

In the meantime, here is a video from Juventutem DC saying “Thank You” to all those faithful clergy and laity who have made this possible. All of us in the St. John Bosco Latin Mass Community would like to extend our thanks to YOU as well.

This summer, I’m going to be a hero, Philip Connelly thought as he lay under a large maple tree on his parents’ farm. He thought that there had to be something he could do that would be important, and remembered by people everywhere, and for all time. But, what could it be? Would it happen this summer, and how would anyone know when he lived on a farm far from any large city? Philip is a teen growing up on a farm in Indiana. This summer will see him mature in many ways: physically, mentally and spiritually. When he was a small boy, Philip thought he could see an angel. But, that was some time ago, and during this period of change in his life, he’ll once again meet that angel! Join Philip as his angel shows him scenes from the lives of saints that parallel his life such as Augustine, Benedict, Scholastica, Catherine of Siena and others.
