We will celebrate the External Solemnity of St. Josaphat this Sunday at the 9:30 AM Tridentine Mass. Veneration of the Relic of St. Josaphat will take place after the Mass.
We will not be able to raise the painting of St. Josaphat above the altar this year due to some technical problems that came about after the High Altar’s re-painting.
This year’s celebration of St. Philomena was observed on Sunday, August 11. Our celebrant was Fr. John Bustamante from Assumption Grotto Church in Detroit, MI.
I would like mention that the Archconfraternity of St. Philomena has started a worldwide petition drive to have St. Philomena’s feast re-instated in the Liturgical Calendar.

These photos were taken during this year’s feast of St. Josaphat. Please note that the high altar and sanctuary are being repainted and so the Mass was held at the side altar.
