Tridentine Mass Returns to Diocese of Lafayette

Mass in Latin is no longer a memory relegated to Lafayette Roman Catholic Diocese annals.

Latin Masses returned to the Lafayette Roman Catholic Diocese on Jan. 14, when the Rev. Jerome Frey celebrated the initial Latin Tridentine service at St. Peter Church. Beginning Feb. 4, the services will be offered at 1 p.m. on the first Sunday of each month at the church located at 102 N. Church St.

Previously, Catholics who preferred the Latin service had to drive nearly 60 miles, or about an hour, to St. Agnes Catholic Church in Baton Rouge. The Baton Rouge Diocese church conducts the service at 9:30 a.m. each Sunday.

Wonderful! It's great to see the Traditional Latin Mass spreading!
