Fraternity Priest from Historic Southeast Indiana Addresses Culture, Convenience and Catholicism


Father Gerard Saguto of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, recently spoke on “Culture, Convenience and Catholicism” at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Roman Catholic Church, Carmel, Indiana.  Father Saguto is administrator of a traditional Roman Catholic parish which is one of the best kept secrets in historic Southeast Indiana. Folks drive from as far away as Lafayette, Indianapolis, Dayton, and Cincinnati to attend the Traditional Latin Mass on Sundays.  Those families that getaway for the weekends and stay in bed & breakfast or hotel accommodations have found a wonderful way to round off their Sundays.   What they find is an authentic Solemn High Mass that you would have experienced in the 19th  up to the mid 20th centuries in Southeast Indiana.

Thanks to everyone that attended our first speaker’s series, Culture, Convenience and Catholicism with Father Gerard Saguto.  Everybody was very brave to weather the temperatures that were in the single digits with sub-zero wind chill factors.  And again, many thanks to Father Saguto who drove over an hour to get back home.  On a warmer note, we are looking forward to our next event that will soon be announced.

All the best in Christ,
