Intoning the Veni Creator Spiritus at Midnight of the New Year
NEW YEARS EVE AND NEW YEARS DAY
The only known midnight mass and opportunity to gain two plenary indulgences on January the 1st (Feast of the Circumcision of Our Lord) in the State of Georgia will be at the parish of St Francis de Sales in Mableton. Prior to the midnight mass, there will be a Holy Hour, confessions, and benediction followed by the public singing of the Te Deum starts at 11:00 pm. Immediately following the Te Deum there will be a Low Mass at Midnight. After the Mass there will be the public singing of the Veni Creator Spiritus. The public recitation of the Te Deum before midnight gains a plenary indulgence, AND the public recitation of the Veni Creator Spiritus after midnight carries another plenary indulgence. They both carry the usual conditions so you can receive confession and communion all in the same evening. A rare opportunity to gain two plenary indulgences on one trip to church. Also there will be another Low Mass on the Feast Day at 9:00 am and a HIGH MASS at 11:30 am. Confessions are heard before all masses. The Veni Creator Spiritus will be recited and or sung at both of the these masses to gain the indulgence

Juventutem Mass at World Youth Day
GUADETE SUNDAY 15 DECEMBER 2019

High Mass at St. Francis de Sales is the first part, and begins at 11:30 AM, with confessions heard immediately following the second Low Mass. If you do not normally attend this mass, be aware that arriving early is generally wise, due to high attendance causing limited space available.
Lunch will be at Taps Bar and Grill a short distance from the Parish located at:
1025 East-West Connector Suite 100, Austell, GA 30106
We have set the time of the event to begin at 3:00pm but all are welcome to arrive anytime before and socialize before we get everyone together and begin the game.

Fidelis Mbargara (L) with Father DeGuzman, FSSP & Una Voce Ga President
UNA VOCE FORMS NEW CHAPTER IN EAST AFRICA
Traditional Catholics in the area around the Kenyan Capitol of Nairobi have formed a brand new chapter of Una Voce. The group elected Fidelis N Mbargara as its inaugural president. Presdent Mbargara visited Georgia last week and met with Una Voce Georgia and the FSSP for assistance in starting the Latin Mass in the East African country of Kenya. Currently there are no Latin Masses anywhere in the country. The group hopes to get permission from the Cardinal Archbishop of Nairobi and start the mass at the Basilica of the Holy Family in central Nairobi. Efforts are now underway to hopefully get this started in 2020. For any Una Voce members here in Georgia who would like to offer a note of encouragement please send mail to:
Fidelis N. Mbagara
