More evidence of the growth and appeal of the Traditional Mass in St. Louis in the wake of Summorum Pontificum: The Carmelite Sisters of the Divine Heart of Jesus will have Mass in the Extraordinary Form once a month, on the second Wednesday of each month at 7 a.m. These Masses will take place in the Chapel of the St. Agnes Home, which is one of the order's apostolates and also the location of their convent for the Central Province of the U.S.
The first such Mass will occur on Wednesday, January 9, 2007 at 7 a.m. Father Thomas Keller will say Mass. The Sisters already have commitments in the coming months from Father Edward Richard and Monsignor Ted Wojcicki, Vice-Rector and Rector, respectively, of Kenrick-Glennon Seminary. Masses are open to the public.
