 Image result for epiphany water blessing

Blessing of Epiphany Water during Vespers

FSSP Priest Epiphany House Blessing using Blessed Chalk 

EPIPHANY WATER BLESSING VIGIL OF EPIPHANY
The only place in Georgia where Epiphany water will be blessed will be on the Vigil of the Epiphany, Tuesday January 5th starting at 6:00 pm. at St Francis de Sales in Mableton Georgia , Atlanta Diocese. The ancient blessing of Epiphany water is done during vespers on the eve of the great feast day. The blessing is long &; complex and the water is very powerful. This water is used during the Epiphany Blessing of homes that begin the following day and throughout the octave. Make sure any water containers you bring have your name on the container. 

EPIPHANY HOME BLESSING
The only place in Georgia where you can have gold, incense, myrrh, and chalk blessed on the Epiphany will be at the parish of St Francis de Sales on January 6th, see web site below, for mass schedules for the Feast Day. Ask your local priest to use the Roman Ritual and perform the Epiphany House Blessing on your home. The ceremony is in the Roman Ritual, and the English translation is below for you to follow along. All Catholic priests may use the traditional Roman Ritual pursuant to Summorum Pontificum, without seeking any type of permission.

EPIPHANY HOUSE BLESSING TRANSLATION

It is that time of year for your priest to come to your home and bless your house during the Octave of the Epiphany. He will use the Epiphany water blessed at vespers on the Vigil of the Epiphany and the chalk and incense blessed on the Feast of the Epiphany. Here is the English translation of the ritual.
( Please note the Father of the House will lead the priest from room to room with a lighted blessed candle-also all who enter for the first time after the blessing do so with their right foot)

As the priest comes into the home he says:
P: God's peace be in this home. 
All: And in all who live here.
P. Ant.: Magi from the East came to Bethlehem to adore the Lord; and opening their treasure chests they presented Him with precious gifts: gold for the great King, incense for the true God, and myrrh in symbol of His burial. Alleluia.
Canticle of the Magnificat
Luke 1.46-55
P: "My soul * extols the Lord;
All: And my spirit leaps for joy in God my Savior.
P: How graciously He looked upon His lowly maid! * Oh, see, from this hour onward age after age will call me blessed!
All: How sublime is what He has done for me, * the Mighty One, whose name is 'Holy'!
P: From age to age He visits those * who worship Him in reverence.
All: His arm achieves the mastery: * He routs the haughty and proud of heart.
P: He puts down princes from their thrones, * and exalts the lowly;
All: He fills the hungry with blessings, * and sends away the rich with empty hands.
P: He has taken by the hand His servant Israel, * and mercifully kept His faith,
All: As He had promised our fathers * with Abraham and his posterity forever and evermore."
P: Glory be to the Father.
All: As it was in the beginning.
Meanwhile the home is sprinkled with holy water and incensed. At the end of the Magnificat the antiphon is repeated. Then the priest says Our Father (the rest inaudibly until:) 
P: And lead us not into temptation. 
All: But deliver us from evil. 
P: Many shall come from Saba. 
All: Bearing gold and incense.
P: Lord, heed my prayer.
All: And let my cry be heard by you.
P: The Lord be with you.
All: May he also be with you.
Let us pray.
God, who on this day revealed your only-begotten Son to all nations by the guidance of a star, grant that we who now know you by faith may finally behold you in your heavenly majesty; through Christ our Lord. 
All: Amen.
Responsory: Be enlightened and shine forth, O Jerusalem, for your light is come; and upon you is risen the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ born of the Virgin Mary.
P: Nations shall walk in your light, and kings in the splendor of- your birth.
All: And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
Let us pray.
Lord God almighty, bless + this home, and under its shelter let there be health, chastity, self-conquest, humility, goodness, mildness, obedience to your commandments, and thanksgiving to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. May your blessing remain always in this home and on those who live here; through Christ our Lord. All: Amen.

Bless each room with incense and Epiphany Water. Write the Magi’s initials, connected by Crosses, and the year’s numbers over the exterior doors with the blessed chalk, like this:

NEWEST FSSP APOSTOLATE IN THE USA

 

Decree of Erection of the Parish










Father Joshua Passo, FSSP preaching at the First Mass

ATTENTION UNA VOCE MEMBERS IN THE SAVANNAH DIOCESE

PLEASE READ THE BELOW. UNA VOCE WORKED HARD TO HAVE THE NEWEST FSSP APOSTOLATE IN THE USA. THEY NOT ONLY RECEIVED A NEW PERSONAL PARISH BUT TWO CHURCHES !!!!!!!   

This is from the newspaper of the Diocese of Little Rock

SPRINGDALE – The Latin Mass community in Northwest Arkansas now has its own home. The newly established parish of Our Lady of Sorrows celebrated its first Mass on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe Dec. 12 in Springdale.  

The apostolate of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter will oversee the parish as well as St. John the Baptist Church in Cabot. All Masses are in Latin and follow the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.

Around 190 congregants attended the church blessing and the votive Mass that followed.

In spite of freezing temperatures, parishioners watched as vicar general Father John Connell, also of Springdale, walked around the building with Father Joshua Passo, FSSP, and altar servers, blessing, singing Psalms and sprinkling all four corners of the church with holy water.

Father Passo, a member of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter who is also the associate pastor at St. John the Baptist Parish in Cabot, spoke during the Mass of the hard work and sacrifice of the parishioners and others who had helped make the dream of a Latin Mass community in northwest Arkansas a reality.

“I am most humbled by the fruits of your labor and dedicate the labors of my priesthood,” said Father Passo, as he thanked the congregants, other priests present and Bishop Anthony B. Taylor. “How fitting in dedicating the parish to Our Lady of Sorrows, as Our Lady will teach us how to suffer and how to love her son. We start a new family as a parish, a new spiritual family and a community trying to love God, to go to heaven and to be sanctified.”

Father Connell served as the bishop’s delegate for the blessing and read the decree establishing the church as a parish. Bishop Taylor was unable to attend because he was in isolation after contracting COVID-19.

“The Latin community has grown since my arrival here in northwest Arkansas in 2009,” said Father Connell after the Mass. “I am very happy that I was able to work with them and to see them become their own parish today.”

The church, at 1600 W. Graham Road in Springdale, is centrally located for surrounding communities and convenient to the I-49 bypass. Formerly, the 5,000-square-foot metal building functioned as a Lutheran church that was looking to downsize. The community was able to buy the church, complete with a steeple and pews, another small building that will function as a rectory and nine acres of property for $750,000. The altar is flanked by two niches, with statues of Our Lady of Sorrows on one side and St. Joseph on the other, and is separated by a Communion rail.

The Latin Mass community in the area had its beginnings with a few parishioners at St. Joseph Church in Tontitown. The late Father Greg Hart began celebrating the Latin Mass for a small group in 2011. Beginning in 2017, priests of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter from the Most Precious Blood Parish in Tulsa began traveling to Tontitown to celebrate a Latin Mass on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. As the community grew, it became possible to move forward in establishing a parish. With the bishop’s permission, they began to look for their own property.

Father Paul Jared McCambridge, also a member of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter and pastor of St. John the Baptist in Cabot, was given oversight for the congregation.

“They had begun their work before I began serving as a pastor for them in June of 2020,” Father McCambridge said. “In order to meet their needs, both Bishop Taylor and my superiors believed it seemed fit that a priest and parish would benefit all involved. So once there was assurance that the congregation could raise funds and acquire the building, the timing seemed right for establishing a parish.”

Parishioner Marie Nowak began attending the Latin Mass in March. Her family moved from Minnesota four years ago and was a member of St. Bernard Church in Bella Vista.

“We were drawn to the reverent community, the tradition and the large families we met here,” said Nowak, mother of 10.

Becky Guy said she and her husband Chris were on a date night and attended the Latin Mass last spring and were drawn to the traditional Mass.

“We began bringing the kids and coming more to the Latin Mass a couple of months ago,” she said.

The Fakult family joined the Latin Mass community in 2011. Their two boys, Matthew and Andrew, were altar servers at St. Joseph for almost a decade and fittingly served at the first Mass for Our Lady of Sorrows.

“What drew us to the Mass is that it is holy,” Mike Fakult said. “The Latin Mass sanctifies us as parishioners and a community, but it also sanctifies the whole area for the parish to be established.”

Michael Gray, a convert to the faith, began attending the Latin Mass in 2013.

“We have seen a lot of young families and a significant number of Hispanic families begin to attend the Latin Mass,” he said.  

Gray was a member of the building committee that began looking for property and helped spearhead pledge drives.

“People responded well to the pledge drives,” Gray said. “We did a generic drive for (the) property, with Fraternity support and the bishop’s support, from 2017-2018. The second pledge drive had more focus and identified a timeline for establishing the parish. Both drives exceeded our expectations with contributors from several parishes and individuals interested in seeing the church be established. We closed on April 30, the feast day of St. Catherine of Sienna, and we had funds to begin the remodeling project, which has been all from donations.”

Members of the community suggested naming the parish for Our Lady of Sorrows, and Bishop Taylor agreed.

Father McCambridge said Our Lady of Sorrows will begin a gradual transition to establish fulltime parish life with a regular Mass schedule and a pastor from the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter assigned there. Currently, Father McCambridge serves as the administrator and Father Passo serves as the assistant administrator, with the intention of Father Passo moving to Springdale and assuming more responsibility.

Father McCambridge said attendance in Cabot and Tontitown has grown over the years. Families registered in the Springdale parish have increased from 35 to about 55 in the past six months, totaling about 190 parishioners.

“Part of it is a desire that Catholics have to get a taste or sense of the ancient traditional practice of the Church,” he said

AMAZING NEWS BISHOP TO ATTEND LATIN MASS IN SAVANNAH

 









New Bishop of Savannah H.E. Stephen Parkes

Below is a  Missa Coram Episcopo 










INCREDIBLE NEWS PLEASE PASS THIS ON AND MAKE SURE YOU ATTEND AND MAKE SURE YOU SEND A NOTE TO THE BISHOP TO THANK HIM 

Una Voce is pleased to break the news that the newly consecrated Bishop of Savannah will attend the Latin Mass in his cathedral on Sunday November 15th 2020 at 1:00 pm for the mass of the 24th Sunday after Pentecost (in your missal it is the mass of the 5th Sunday of Epiphany and this day is also the Feast Day of Albert the Great).  For directions see: https://savannahcathedral.org/   His Excellency will sit in choro so the mass will be a missa coram episcopo.  His Excellency will also preach the sermon. This is extremely rare and this will be the first time this has occurred in the Savannah Diocese since Vatican II.

Some rubrical notes on a missa coram episcopo:

In a Missa coram Episcopo, the bishop recites the prayers at the foot of the altar together with the celebrant, with the other ministers saying the responses, and reads the texts of the Mass at the throne from a second Missal. He also blesses the incense at the throne, which is then brought to the celebrant at the altar, blesses the subdeacon and deacon after the singing of the readings, and the water at the Offertory. For the consecration, he kneels at the center of the sanctuary, so the subdeacon moves to the Epistle side; and he gives the final blessing.

IT IS CRITICAL THAT WE HAVE A LARGE CROWD AT THIS MASS. PLEASE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO ATTEND AND PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD AND BRING FRIENDS. THE BISHOP NEEDS TO SEE THAT THERE IS SUPPORT FOR TRADITION IN HIS NEW DIOCESE.

AFTER MASS PLEASE SEND A THANK YOU CARD TO THE BISHOP THANKING HIM FOR ATTENDING THIS MASS

NEW MASS TIMES & START OF CCD ATLANTA ARCHCIOCESE





CCD STARTS & MASS TIMES CHANGE ATLANTA ARCHDIOCESE

ST FRANCIS DE SALES PARISH 587 LANDERS DRIVE MABLETON GA 30126

Parents planning to enroll their children in the no-cost program must register them in advance by filling out forms, which are available here.

Some of the forms can be completed electronically through the website, but some require a physical signature and must be downloaded and submitted on paper to the parish office. These forms will also be available at the church.

The adjustment to the Sunday Mass times allows this year’s classes to operate for a full hour between the 8 am Mass and the high Mass, which will now be at 10:30 am. The classes will be from 9:15 to 10:15 am, allowing those who attend the 8 am Mass to go to CCD afterwards, or those who go to the high Mass to go to CCD before Mass

F0r any questions, please contact Mr. Randal Mandock, the parish’s director of religious education, at ccd@fsspatl.com.

NEW MASS TIMES STARTIND SUNDAY OCTOBER 18TH

With the return of our Catholic education program (CCD) just around the corner, and the need for more time between Sunday Masses for confessions, Fr. Robert Dow, FSSP, has announced an adjustment to the Sunday Mass schedule.

Starting Sunday, Oct. 18, the schedule will be as follows:

·        8 am Low Mass

·        9:15 to 10:15 am CCD

·        10:30 am High Mass

·        1 pm Low Mass

This slight adjustment to the schedule shifts the high Mass 30 minutes later, which helps the priests to hear more confessions between Masses, and enables the CCD program to have a full hour between the 8 am and 10:30 am Masses.

The CCD program provides a much-needed remedy to the lack of good Catholic education for children in our society today. More information about the program is available here on the parish website, and registration forms for the new academic year will be available beginning Saturday, September 26.

The website also provides an electronic calendar of the parish Mass times, allowing users with smart phones, tablets, and computers to see not only the Sunday and daily Mass times in the calendar on their own devices, but it also provides the names of the feasts for each day, helping parishioners to better pray with the mind of the Church. To subscribe to this service, visit this page, and select "subscribe" at the top of the page for either the Mass Schedule or Bulletin Events.

The group gathered at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in the morning for Mass, then carpooled to the state park. After hiking to the top of the falls on the well-maintained trail, they enjoyed a picnic lunch. 

Juventutem Atlanta is part of an international organization of young adults who attend the Traditional Latin Mass. All young people ages 18 to 35–regardless of which parish they attend or even which religion they have–are welcome to attend the groups monthly activities.
