Dress Code

Basic Rule: You are coming to Mass, to a sacred space where God is present in the Blessed Sacrament. Dress is formal or at minimum, the best you have. Dress to impress God. Show him that you care to look nice for Him. That effort is part of our worship and giving glory to God.

  • Everyone
    • No political, provocative, anti-Catholic clothing
    • No facial covering or masks (except for medical masks for medical reasons only). This is primarily a security measure so that we can identify people.
    • No shorts
    • No bare midriff
    • No T-shirts or other clothing with inappropriate messages
    • Shoes must be worn.
    • One must dress according to their obvious and God given sex.
    • No Non-Catholic religious clothing that honors any God but the (Roman or Orthodox) Catholic Triune God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who sent His only Son (God) into the world to suffer and die for our sins and who rose on the third day victorious over sin and death and who ascended into heaven and is now seated at the right hand of the Father. This is our sacred space and no god is to be honored here, but our God. Therefore, there are to be NO:
      • Burkes
      • Turbans
      • Facial coverings
    • Jeans and T-shirts are not appropriate, unless that is the best you have.
    • Yoga pants, sweat suits and other such sport and exercise type clothing are not appropriate.

    • Pants
    • Shirt or sweater
    • No muscle shirts
    • No hats
  • Women

      • Dress and skirt should be of a modest length
      • Shoulders should be covered
      • Neckline should be above cleavage
    • Leggings are like nylons, and tights, they are not pants. If you wear leggings, you will need to wear a skirt or dress over top of them.
    • Mantillas are encouraged or a dress hat (no baseball or other recreational style hats)
Health Policy (COVID-19)

Our health policy can be summed up in two sentences:

If you are not feeling well and think you have something contagious, stay home. You have dispensation.

Statement on COVID-19:
It has been our position from the beginning that COVID-19 poses no real threat. Less than 0.5% have died from a disease that was supposed to be a human extinction event. There are far more important things to worry about in this world that pose greater threats to mind, body and soul. One such threat is the political agenda and liberal, panzi environment that did so much harm in the name of COVID-19. 

That being said. If you have or think your have COVID-19 or any communicable disease, please stay home. 
Statement on Masks:
Wearing a mask poses a threat to the community. It is our policy that masks are not allowed so that we are able to identify everyone and keep the community safe.  

If you have a medical need to wear a mask, please inform the Pastor so he can validate your reason. 

Fear of COVID-19 is not a reason to wear a mask. The virus is too small and passes right through any mask unless you wear an N95 mask. Have fun breathing in that thing. 
1st Sunday Social Hour (& every Sunday)

Every first Sunday of the month, we have a formal social hour after each Mass. This is a good time to get to know each other and enrich your faith by spending time with kindred spirits.

The parish provides coffee, tea, fruit drinks, plates, plasticware, cups and napkins plus all the fixings for the coffee.

You provide all the food. So it is different each month.

Note: There is coffee and stuff available every Sunday after all the Masses. They are more informal and food is hit and miss if there will be any. That does not matter as it is always a good time for you to gather and decompress with each other each week.

BTW: My people are spoiled. No off the shelf coffee for them. I serve Mystic Monk Coffee. I affectionately refer to them as my “coffee snobs.”

Altar Servers

Being an altar server is a great honor. Your role in assisting the priest in the sacrifice of the Mass is unparalleled.

Please consider having your sons fulfill this great service to God.

Men, too, are encouraged to fulfill this role.

Father & son teams are very appropriate and a beautiful thing to see.

Requirements:

  • Must be a male
  • Be able to say the Latin parts of the Mass
  • Have received your first communion
  • Be disciplined enough to behave during Mass and to take serious the role of server.
  • Be punctual (Arrive at least 10 minutes before Mass)
Ushers

Ushers are not just nice guys who welcome you to church.

They are trained to recognize new people and assist them in any way they need, especially people who have never been to a TLM.

They also Look for inappropriate dress, especially any clothing with inappropriate images or messages.

They are trained to use “Catholic based profiling” to recognize and deal with any persons who may not be here with good intentions or who may just be a problem.

Parish Mission Statement

We are still working on it

Finance Council
The Finance Council is required by canon and diocesan law to assist the pastor in his role as the chief Shepard and Steward of the temporal goods of the parish.

They serve in an advisory role both the Bishop and the Pastor in the administration of the parish. There are a few things that require their vote. 

They are to assist the pastor in the developing, maintaining, and reviewing of the yearly budget. They advise the pastor on the financial practices of the parish and also on the management of the physical buildings and property.

To the Bishop, they are particularly responsible for the submission of a yearly financial report.  
Pastoral Council
The Pastoral Councils is established as an advisory and consultative body only. 

As an advisory and consultative body to the pastor, they have 2 roles:

1 - They are to bring to the priest any concerns, issues or ideas they may have or that they are aware of in the parish. In this role, they are your representative. Feel free to talk and share with them your concerns, issues or ideas. Or, as usual, you can bring them directly to me.

2- They are there to be a confidential sounding board for me to let them know what I am thinking and my pastoral plan for the next year, 5 years, decade and beyond. They are then free to share their insights to help me further develop, change or scrap any of these plans and to come up with new or better ones.
