FSSP in Joliet, IL Announces Change in Mass Locations

As announced this morning to the members of the Joliet Latin Mass Community:

Effective August 5th, 2013, Bishop Conlon has appointed Fr Joseph R Valentine FSSP as Administrator of St Joseph Parish in Rockdale. This move will provide a much more stable "home" for the Traditional Latin Mass in the Joliet Diocese and, with God's help, allow us to solidify what we have accomplished and move forward in ways that were not possible before. We are grateful to Bishop Conlon for this oppotrunity, and to the faithful of St Joseph's for allowing us to become a part of their community; May it be a fruitful relationship for all! St Joseph, pray for us!

What this will mean:
  • We will have a Sunday morning Mass time for the Latin Mass in the Joliet area. 
  • We will have daily Latin Masses at St Joseph's (the daily Masses at Ss Peter & Paul, Naperville will be discontinued, at least for the time being). 
  • The 5:30 PM Sunday Mass at Ss Peter & Paul will continue as before. 
  • The Noon Sunday Mass at St Bernard's will be discontinued. 
  • The neighboring parishes will provide priests to celebrate an English Novus Ordo Mass on Saturday Evening for the parishioners who desire it.
