Angelic Warfare Confraternity
Angelic Warfare Confraternity Enrollment: In January, on the Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas, our parish will have a group enrollment ceremony for the Angelic Warfare Confraternity conducted by Fr. Kauth.
What is it? The Angelic Warfare Confraternity is a supernatural fellowship of Catholic men and women dedicated to pursuing chastity together under the patronage of St. Thomas Aquinas and the Blessed Virgin Mary. In his own life, St. Thomas Aquinas received a special grace of chastity and purity; therefore he is an extremely powerful intercessor for those seeking to practice chastity according to their state in life. This confraternity originated in the 1400′s and was officially founded for the whole Church in 1727 by Pope Benedict XII.
All baptized Christians, married and unmarried, are called to live chastely. However, sexual purity, both mentally and physically, can be very difficult to maintain in our culture. The Angelic Warfare Confraternity is an effective way to seriously pursue the virtue of chastity with the prayers of other confraternity members and the communion of saints in heaven. This is a one-time enrollment ceremony, there are no meetings. Once you have been enrolled you wear the blessed sacramentals and pray the daily prayers.
Date & time: Wednesday, January 28th after the 7pm Mass.
Latin Masses Every Wedensday at 7pm (MEF)
In his document "Summonrum Pontificum," Pope Benedict XVI decreed, "In parishes where a group of faithful attached to the previous liturgical tradition exists stably, let the pastor willingly accede to their requests for the celebration of the Holy Mass according to the right of the Roman Missal published in 1962." (source)
Beginning the first Wednesday in Advent, December 3rd, and ongoing, the 7pm Mass will be Mass in the Extraordinary Form (MEF) said in Latin. Come join us in this new tradition. Note that on January 28th (the Feast of Saint Thomas Aquinas), February 3rd, February 7th (8:30am - cancelled), and February 18th (Ash Wednesday) the 7pm Mass will be celebrated in the Novus Ordo and in English.
