Traditional Latin Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis

On Wednesday, March 7, 2007 at 7 p.m., the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas according to the traditional calendar, the Institute of Christ the King, Sovereign Priest will offer Solemn High Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis.

This is a truly exciting event-- it will will be the first traditional Latin Mass publicly celebrated in the Archdiocesan Cathedral for at least 35 years. Deo gratias! All are welcome to attend.

It would be great to see this 2,000 person capacity church filled to the rafters for this Mass. The beauty of this magnificent cathedral is fitting for the beauty of the timeless Mass.

For more information, visit the Institute's website in St. Louis www.institute-christ-king.org/stlouishome.htm or the Cathedral's site http://www.cathedralstl.org/.

UPDATE: 02/23/2007: To clarify for those just finding this post, the March 7, 2007 Solemn High Mass will be celebrated by a priest from the Institute of Christ the King.
Archbishop Burke himself will celebrate the traditional Mass at the Cathedral to ordain 2 ICKSP candidates to the priesthood on June 15, 2007 at 1pm. All are welcome to attend both Masses.

Thanks, Mark, I would have used your photos for the story originally but didn't want to "steal" your work.

Thanks for your post. As a former St. Louisan, I look forward to this liturgy with great expectation. I am parishoner at the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter parish in Kansas City KS and a former parishioner at (years ago) at the Cathedral. It will be a termendous blessing to participate in the Ancient Mass at the Cathedral Basilica!

REALLY wish I could be in St. Louis for the ordination of the priests of the Institute of Christ the King Souvereign Priest and the Divine Liturgy of the Ancient Tridentine rite.Since fortune and circumstance inhibit my being in St. Louis for this momentus occassion be it enough to say my prayers are with Archbishop Burke, the institute and the thousands that will attend this awesome liturgy. Shalom-Pacem
