Singers Needed for Choir

The choir season will be starting up soon with the first sung Mass on September 12th. We need more singers in all voice parts, especially sopranos and tenors. If you are interested and willing to commit to a Wednesday evening practice please contact the choir director, Philip Crnkovich at [email protected] or stop up in the choir loft after Mass.

Please, seriously consider joining since a choir is vital for the sung Mass.

Sign up to Host the Pilgrim Virgin Statue

The Lancaster Latin Mass Community invites you to welcome into your home our Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima. You may sign up to have the statue in your home for a period of approximately one month. During this time of visitation, all are encouraged to: practice daily prayer of the rosary; invite guests to join your family in praying with Our Lady; and make a Home Enthronement to the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. 

The months of November, December and January are open at this time. Details can be found on the Sign-Up Genius page:
