19 people are talking about “Traditional Latin Masses in the Twin Cities

  1. I’ve been back to Mpls area the last 5 months off & on since my mother passed away January 13, 2015 — I don’t care to go to my family parish for Mass because I hardly feel at home there. Seems like a liberal attitude. I love my Denver parish and our pastor does not mince words.
    I thought the Basillica had a Latin Mass though.

    • I’m sorry to hear of your mother’s passing, may eternal light shine upon her face.

      From what I know, the Basilica does not have a Latin Mass. I just looked at their website and do not see any mention of it. Though, I do know it is not uncommon for a parish to have a Latin Mass and not advertise it, so who knows?

    • Sorry for your loss. If you are still here(in MN), go to St. Raphael in Crystal. Father Altier is wonderful. He conducts every other Sunday mass and has the best homilies you will ever hear. He also conducts a Latin mass every Friday. Another wonderful priest(never minces words) is Father Echert at St. Augustine’s in South Saint Paul. Latin Mass every Sunday. You will not be disappointment by either of these priests.

  2. TLM at St. Agnes? I used to attend there until the pastor and I had a conversation. Because they had a picture of the Divine Mercy in Church, I told him that the Divine Mercy devotion was twice refused as supernatural by Rome. In addition, it takes away from Mary as the Mother of Mercy and the Holy Rosary by praying it on the same beads. Why do we need a secretary of mercy, faustina, when we have Mary? We do not.

    I also asked him about Lumen Gentium 16 which states that all 3 monotheistic religions worship the same God. Then I said that one of the three put Jesus in hell floating in His own excrement and the other views Him as a prophet. Only one of the three believe in the Holy Trinity, so how can they worship the same God. His response was they do.

    They also offer the invalid novus ordor “new order” Mass. No way the Mass at St. Agnes is authentic. It is just another Church of white washed stones.

    Read Matthew 24 and 2 Thessalonians 2 and Daniel regarding the failure of the eternal sacrifice.

    This protestant gets it, when most Catholics do not:

    The novus ordor church is not Catholic. Who put Boodah on the tabernacle? JPII How evil is this?

    Are you also deceived?

    Satan comes as an angel of light, not a red horned being with a pitchfork.

  3. St. Thomas the Apostle (actually in Corcoran, not Hamel) no longer offers a traditional Latin mass. Fr. Gallas, the only priest at the parish trained to offer the mass in Latin was recently reassigned.

    • Hi Mike,

      Thanks for reminding me to update this. I had meant to do this when I had heard Fr. Gallas was no longer going to be at the parish, but was hopeful that maybe he’d be a travelling priest. Oh well. It was a great Mass.

      God bless,

  4. For years I have been looking for a church in/near the NW suburbs of Mpls. that holds to conservative principals. In my opinion the Catholic Church should stand as a beacon of light in the fight against what is immoral and the decline of our society. Instead She has contributed to our society moving further and further Left and away from my core beliefs.
    Enough of my own preaching. I have been going to St. Vincent De Paul in Osseo, MN for 40 years but I can no longer attend mass there. I need to attend mass at a church where the priest holds to conservative beliefs and the mass itself is not some concert or just another social gathering. It also needs to value the role of men esp. as fathers not just value women/mothers.
    I am mature enough to realize that there isn’t the perfect place of worship for everyone. However, I need to find one that helps me in my spiritual journey not detracts from it. It does not need to be a Latin Mass, even though that is what I grew up with, it just needs to be a place of worship with conservative values. If you are not aware of a Catholic church in my area that can help me then perhaps you are aware of another denomination — Lutheran? Baptist?

    I still belief the Catholic religion is beautiful and will always remain a Catholic in my heart (in spite of the current Church) — its what people have done to it that’s the problem.
    Thank you,

    • Hi John,
      I understand your frustration, I really do. There are still some Catholic parishes in the Archdiocese with faithful pastors and good flocks who are doing their best to hold on to the faith. However, to do that, you may have to add some travel time onto your weekly Mass visit. I myself travel about 20-25 minutes when I do go to the regular Mass and 35+ minutes when I go to the Latin Mass. It’s an unfortunate reality that we have to face in our day (I live within 10 minutes of 4 or 5 Catholic Churches). Many families are doing this, driving much longer and further to get solid parishes.
      I would first recommend going to a TLM if you are able. However, I know of several parishes in the NW suburbs that you might be able to attend. I’ve heard good things about Church of the Epiphany in Coon Rapids, though I’ve never been there myself. I also know of St. Thomas the Apostle in Corcoran which is pretty good. St. Anne in Hamel is also doing really good things and is growing with many young families looking for tradition.
      I would not leave the Catholic Church for another denomination, even for worship, as the Church has always taught that that would be a mortal sin. Just because there are corrupt people in the hierarchy, don’t let them cause you to falter.
      Hopefully, this helps!

  5. I love Epiphany! The priest is devout as seems the congregation, a lot of young families and a Catholic school. My family actually felt “at home” here. They are very cognizant of the plight of abortion and take a stand to pray and do something about it. You are correct, it is difficult to find a parish like this in the NW suburbs that doesn’t lean Liberal and modernist. So happy to have found this gem!
