In addition to serving as celebrant for Mass in the Extraordinary Form (Latin) here at Saint Agnes Cathedral in Springfield, Fr. Fasching continues to serve as chaplain to the non-Catholic hospitals in the Springfield area. These include Cox South, Cox North, Cox Walnut Lawn, Ozarks Community Hospital, and Select Specialty Hospital.

Fr. Fasching also assists Father Paul Wightman, O.M.I., with his parishes including Immaculate Heart of Mary, Mansfield; Sacred Heart, Mountain Grove; Saint Leo the Great, Ava; Saint William, Gainesville; and Saint Michael, Cabool.

As you know, there is no scheduled Latin Mass during the week on Mondays. This is Father Fasching's day off. You are asked not to attempt to contact him on this day.

God's greatest commandment is to love Him with one's whole heart and mind. We are then commanded to love our neighbor as ourselves. God delights in those who hope in Him and trust in His mercy. He calls us to show the same mercy towards our brethren. Acts of mercy and charity trump any formal act of prayer or devotion. We can never be too busy to assist a neighbor in need. We must always remember that when we serve our neighbor out of kindness, we serve God Himself! The quicker we respond to the needy and the more joyful our disposition, the more pleasing our act will be to God.

In Christo Jesu et
Maria Immaculata,

Father Jeff Fasching
