Some Updates Following the Priestly Assignments This Week
In last Friday's St. Louis Review, the long list of priestly assignments that usually take place this time each year was made public. A few were of particular interest to traditionally-minded Catholics.
Fr. Gregory Lockwood, who celebrates the Traditional Latin Mass each Sunday at 3pm at Assumption Parish in South County, has been assigned to St. Gabriel the Archangel Parish in the City.
I have corresponded with Fr. Lockwood, who was able to confirm the good news that he will continue to celebrate the TLM each Sunday at 3pm at Assumption, while fulfilling his duties at St. Gabriel. No word yet on any addition of Mass in the Extraordinary Form at St. Gabriel, but it is certainly a worthy prayer intention.
Also, Fr. Keller, the Archdiocesan Master of Ceremonies and friend to the Traditional Mass, has been assigned to parish work in North County, per his wish. He states he has every confidence in the new MC, Fr. Schroeder, and we wish both priests well in their new work.
Finally, the newly confirmed all received their assignments, and we hope to hear good things from them in their ministries. Not to beat a dead horse, but some more TLMs would be great!
Mary, Queen of Apostles, pray for us.
