LATIN HIGH MASS IN AUGUSTA 3RD SUNDAY AFTER EPIPHANY

The Latin Mass will return to Augusta for 2022. The date for the monthly Latin High mass in Augusta (3rd Sunday of Each Month) is Sunday January 23rd at 12:30pm. After mass there will be a potluck social in the Saint Francis parish hall. This potluck is for the traditional community and for visitors to be able to socialize and make new friends. There is usually entertainment as well. Even if you don't bring anything, please come and meet like-minded Catholics.

Please continue to pray for the clergy, especially Fr. Almeter and Bp. Parkes. Pray especially for The Holy Father. Please consider participating in the initiative at this link. Mothers of priests in France are doing some heavy lifting, quite literally, to make the case with the Roman Pontiff by carrying letters from the faithful on a march on foot from Paris to Rome. If you would like to read more about this initiative and perhaps submit a letter, you can do so at the link provided.

Distribution of Candles before Mass


















Blessing of Saint Blaze the next day

THE ONLY CANDLEMASS IN GEORGIA 

Unfortunately, the only place to assist at Candlemas or receive the traditional Saint Blaze Blessing in our state will be at the FSSP parish in the Atlanta Archdiocese. There will be a high Candlemas at St Francis de Sales in Mableton Wednesday February 2nd at 7:00 pm. The blessing of candles and procession precede the mass. Bring your candles for the blessing and make sure your name is on them. When you take a candle from the priest, you kneel then you kiss the candle first then kiss the priest's hand and take the candle. Your lighted candle is held during the Gospel. At home these candles are lit for prayers after dusk on All Saints Day, Extreme Unction, and during storms. These candles will be used by the priests on the following day for the blessing of throats on St Blaze's Day. It is traditional to eat crepes on this day.

LATIN MASS & INDULGENCES ATLANTA ARCHDIOCESE NEW YEARS DAY-FEAST OF CIRCUMCISM

 Image result for VENI CREATOR SPIRITUS JANUARY 1ST

Intoning the Veni Creator Spiritus at Midnight of the New Year


ONLY LATIN MASS IN GEORGIA FOR THE CIRCUMCISM THIS FRIDAY NIGHT
The only known midnight mass (and in fact any Latin Mass in our state) 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 this Friday evening, there will be a Holy Hour, confessions, and benediction followed by the public singing of the Te Deum. This starts at 11:00 pm. Immediately following the Te Deum there will be a HIGH 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 a Low Mass on the Feast Day at 9:00 am. Confessions are heard before all masses. The Veni Creator Spiritus will be recited and or sung at both of the masses to gain the indulgence

For info see: 
St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church - Latin Mass Atlanta (fsspatl.com)


 Holy Mother Church provides two plenary indulgences on the last and first day of the year, see below (usual conditions apply)

§ 1. A plenary indulgence is granted to the Christian faithful who, in a church or in an oratory, are present [take part] in a recitation or solemn chant of: ...
1° the hymn Veni Creator ... on the first day of the year, imploring divine assistance for the whole of the coming year...
2° the Te Deum hymn, on the last day of the year, in thanksgiving to God for the favors received in the course of the entire year.
