K of C Dinner

This Sunday after Mass, the Knights of Columbus from St. Agnes will be offering a meal after our Mass. The rate is six dollars per person and twenty dollars for a family. Please bring your appetites on Sunday and meet together with us and Father after Mass! We need a strong showing for the continued offering of events to our community.

High Masses Now the Norm

For Sunday's and Holyday's at St. Agnes according to the Extraordinary Form, congregants will be treated to a Sung Mass as the normative form for these occasions. If Father is unable to sing the parts of the Mass due to illness, a Low (recited) Mass will be offered that day. Come with your prepared voices from now on!

Also: If you do not have an email address on file with the community please submit one as soon as possible as this will become the normative means for the distribution of hymns until hymnals are purchased.

Motu Proprio

The Holy Father will soon released another Motu Proprio concerning the Traditional Latin Mass. It is rumored by Andrea Tornielli that this Motu Proprio will announce the expected absorbtion of the Pontifical Comission Ecclesia Dei into the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

Father Orthel, our priest here in Springfield will be on retreat all this week to learn to offer High Mass. This is a wonderful step forward for the Extraordinary Form in Springfield. Please keep Father in your prayers during this time. Thank you!
