About the Sancta Missa Conferences
Ten years ago, Pope Benedict XVI promulgated his Motu Proprio, Summorum Pontificum so that the faithful might have the opportunity to be spiritually fed and formed by the beauty of ancient form the Latin Mass (usus antiquior) that has been the treasure of Roman Catholics throughout the ages.
Since 2007, the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius have been pleased to have the opportunity to train priests, seminarians and laity about the classic form the Latin Rite celebrated according to the 1962 Missale Romanum (Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite) at workshops, conferences and though our website http://www.SanctaMissa.org.
In our conferences we try to help the faithful learn to approach the "Mass of the Ages" with deeper reverence and love, so that as they are attracted to this venerable liturgy, they might more profoundly enter into the Eucharistic Sacrifice.
In our instruction on the traditional Mass of the Roman Rite, we strive to help everyone both intellectually and spiritually to understand its sacred ceremonies, and to be transformed by its inestimable beauty.
The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius have offered Sancta Missa Workshops many times in the Archdiocese of Chicago, across the USA, and abroad. The conference to be held in September is our first conference in the Springfield Diocese. This opportunity has unfolded as the Canons have been newly established in Springfield. This has been made possible by an invitation from His Excellency, the Most Rev. Thomas John Paprocki, Bishop of Springfield, with the generous blessing of His Eminence Blase Cupich, Archbishop of Chicago. As the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius come to the Springfield Diocese, we hope that our parish ministry at St. Katherine Drexel Parish (comprised of Sacred Heart Church and St. Patrick Church) and Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini Parish will be a blessing for the faithful. As we announce this conference, it is our pleasure to invite you to join us on Saturday, September 30, 2017, at Sacred Heart Church in Springfield, Illinois, as we learn from the wit and wisdom of Bishop Bruskewitz as we study more about the beauty of our Catholic faith and the sacred treasures of the Mass.
