Juventutem Saint Louis

Join Juventutem St. Louis for a Solemn Traditional Latin Mass for the feast of St. Michael the Archangel at St. Luke the Evangelist Church in Richmond Heights. First class feast, folks! 

Msgr. C Eugene Morris, rector of the Oratory of Sts. Gregory and Augustine (newly in residence at St. Luke’s), will be hosting us, preaching, and of course confecting the Eucharist. Fr. Henry Purcell will be coming in from Dardenne Prairie to be Deacon and Fr. Michael Rennier of Epiphany RCC will be the Subdeacon. Please come out to worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness and to show your support for these fine priests. Lunch will follow the Mass at Pan D’Olive, just half a mile away. 

If you are willing and able to serve at the altar or sing in the choir please contact Ryan Murphy at juventutemstl@gmail.com or 314-704-8819. We need your help! Rehearsal for singers and servers will be at 9:00 AM. While Juventutem is a young adult organization, all ages are welcome at the Masses we sponsor. Hope to see you at St. Luke’s on Saturday, September 29 at 10:00 AM!

“I commend the members of Juventutem St. Louis for your love of the living tradition through which our Catholic Faith is transmitted to us in an unbroken line from the Apostles in every generation. For that there is no place in which the tradition is more alive for us than in the sacred liturgy. For that reason, your love of the tradition is rightly manifested in an attraction to the rite of the Roman Mass as it has come down to us from the time of Pope St. Gregory the Great. At the same time, your cultivation of the Usus Antiquior is a fundamental work of a new evangelization in which the Gospel is proclaimed with new engagement and new energy. The celebration of the Roman Rite in the extraordinary form is, in fact, a powerful means of drawing hearts to Christ alive for us in his Holy Church.”
—Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, January 14, 2017
