“Answer when I call, my saving God. In my troubles, you cleared a way; show me favor; hear my prayer… Know that the Lord works wonders for the faithful; the Lord hears when I call out…trust in the Lord.” –Ps 4: 2, 4, 6b

Attend a Latin Mass at St. Francis Xavier
Monday, August 15th | 7:00pm | Church

STFX Church is offering a special Latin Mass in honor of the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (not a Holy Day of Obligation this year).  We will be saying Mass in Latin with the readings and homily being in English. Worship aids will be provided to help those that attend to participate fully in the Mass.  The St. Michael Hymnal also has all of the prayers of the Mass in it with both the Latin and English side-by-side, so it will also be a great resource for those who wish to explore the relationship between our vernacular language and Latin (Church’s mother tongue).

Gospel’s life-saving message to all.

August 24th | Topic: From Conception Until Natural Death | Presenter: Fr. Meyers: What is the ultimate purpose of the Culture of Life?
