We are sorry that we will miss Visitation and funeral. We will be out of town. Bill was such a faithful supporter of the Latin Mass. From St. Agatha’s to Little Flower, he rarely missed a Sunday. Requiescat in pace. Marion and Regina Morris
All the glory to God – please see the new Carmelite Novena schedule below for revised details on their fruitful, 74 year-old, lay initiated, St. Louis Catholic tradition!
IMPORTANT: Please note – Bishop Stika is no longer scheduled to be offering, nor will he be the homilist for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, this Tuesday. To this end we praise God for our alert and fearless St. Louis Catholic lay and religious. Thankfully, our dear Father Timothy Elliott of St. Gianna’s Parish, will now be the priest in Bishop Stika’s stead!
This a beautiful example of how lay people are able to make a difference in defending our Catholic Church and faith. Please take a moment to send Reverend Mother Marya a note of thanks for listening to and responding to our deep concerns on this matter. (Carmel of St. Joseph, 9150 Clayton Rd., St. Louis, MO 63124)
