Welcome and God bless you!

“The Holy Mass is a prayer itself, even the highest prayer that exists. It is the Sacrifice dedicated by our Redeemer at the Cross, and repeated every day on the Altar. If you wish to hear Mass as it should be heard, you must follow with eye, heart and mouth all that happens at the Altar. Further, you must pray with the Priest the holy words said by him in the Name of Christ and which Christ says by him. You have to associate your heart with the holy feelings which are contained in these words and in this manner you ought to follow all that happens on the Altar. When acting in this way, you have prayed Holy Mass.”   

“Don’t pray at Holy Mass, but pray the Holy Mass”.

- His Holiness, Pope Saint Pius X

St. Gregory the Great Latin Mass Chaplaincy was established by Bishop Richard J. Malone to serve those who wish to make use of the Missal of 1962 as provided by Pope Benedict XVI’s Motu Proprio “Summorum Pontificum”.

According to the terms of the Motu Proprio, any priest may provide a Mass in the extraordinary form to those who request it. However, the bishop felt that under the particular circumstances in the diocese, the most practical solution was to create a Chaplaincy to serve the various individuals and communities attached to the extraordinary form of the Roman Rite. It is hoped that this will best serve to promote the peace and unity of the Church which the Holy Father desires as he expressed in “Summorum Pontificum”.
