Topics:Fr. John N. Hay: Celebrates Traditional Latin Mass.... Rev. John Brancich, F.S.S.P: On Modesty....Catholic Bishops: Run Denver Marathon (including James Conley)....In Honor of Mary: Exhibition of Sacred Art at St. Anthony, Wichita


With Fr. Hoisington on sabbatical  and all others busy with their own parishes we, the Latin Mass community of St. Anthony, were naturally a bit concerned with the unknown....who was to celebrate mass for us this Sunday? The answer?: Father John Hay of the Newman Center (see below).

Father Hay , still a very young man, celebrated like an old pro with reverance, knowledge and confidence! Thank you so much!
...and now the Necessaries
Please note: St. Anthony Catholic Church is one of two local churches celebrating the Traditional Latin Mass (EFLR) in the Wichita area. Though this blog is loosely centered around this parish and it's members, Venite Missa Est! is by no means, in any way an official voice of, or for, St. Anthony Parish or the Diocese of Wichita. Venite Missa Est! is strictly a private layman's endeavor.


Fr. John N. Hay Celebrates Traditional Latin Mass
(Extraordinary Form of the Latin Rite) at St. Anthony

Fr. Hay pastor St. Paul’s Parish/ Wichita State University Newman Center

Fr. John N. Hay was born on December 6, 1980 in Wichita, KS to Bob and Janet Hay. He was baptized at St. Cecilia Catholic Church and received part of his elementary education at the parish school. He attended Campus High School in Haysville, KS graduating in 1999. Immediately following high school Father Hay went to Conception Abbey Seminary College for minor seminary from 1999-2003, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities. After college, Father Hay went to The Pontifical College Josephinum for major seminary in Columbus, Ohio from 2003-2007. In the spring of his third year of major seminary Father Hay was ordained a Deacon and assigned to St. Joseph’s parish in downtown Wichita for the summer. Upon his graduation from major seminary, Father was ordained to the sacred Priesthood on May 26, 2007 at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception for the Diocese of Wichita and received his first priestly assignment at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish in Wichita, KS. Father Hay is thrilled to be serving as pastor of St. Paul’s Parish and Newman Center.

St. Paul’s Parish/Newman Center continues to serve Catholics at WSU spiritually, intellectually and socially. The students of the Newman Center strive to give dynamic witness to the cause of Christ on the WSU campus. All of this is done in a spirit of friendship and charity in keeping with Cardinal Newman’s motto: Cor Ad Cor Loquitur, “Heart Speaks to Heart.”

From the Pastor

With temperatures well into the 90s this past week, it is clear that summer weather is far from over. I think you know that I try not to harp on the issue of modesty, but given the culture that we live in, unless we are reminded about this virtue from time to time, we can easily succumb to the standards of the world
which are different from the standards of Jesus Christ. The virtue of modesty is had in the way we speak, act and dress. It is the virtue that helps us to act in a way that is fitting to a person created in the Image and Likeness of Almighty God and especially to an adopted child of God which we are through the Sacrament of Baptism.

Modesty is something that we should live at home, at school, at work, with our friends – not just at Church or when we know the priest might be around. Since God Himself lives and dwells Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity in the tabernacle, it is especially important that that we speak, act and dress modestly when entering into God’s house, the Church. Modesty isn’t just about how we dress. It is why, for example, we normally don’t talk or shout in Church, or why a person walks in a dignified and reverent way in Church – rather than running down the aisle, for instance.
But appropriate and modest dress is important and one of the hardest for us to accept since the culture
around us has mostly lost any standards in this area. To help refresh your memory, here are a few things to remember especially when entering a Church:

  • Shoulders and upper arms should always be covered on both men and women 

  • Shirt and tops should keep the chest modestly covered on both men and women (the last official statement from the Vatican in this regard said the cut of the neck must not dip more than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat).

  • Clothing should not be tight or transparent. 

  • Skirts need to reach below the knee (If that sounds old-fashioned, it should be remembered that St. Pio [Padre Pio] who died only about 40 years ago, insisted that they fall 8 inches below the knee and would severely chastise women who came to Church with skirts shorter than that!)  

  • Shorts are not appropriate wear in Church for men or women, even during the week (even if it is commonplace in some other Churches!)
There are some wrap skirts and shawls available near the bathrooms for women who arrive at Church and were not aware of these guidelines. We are working on obtaining some options for men and hope to have these available soon. Please remember that these are for use in the Church and should not be taken home. The best thing that you as parishioners can do to promote modesty is not to chastise and lecture an unsuspecting visitor who is not familiar with modesty guidelines but rather to model the virtue of modesty in your behavior, speech and dress both in and outside of Church. I am working on a sign that will be placed at the entrances which will give visitors or new folks a little information on this but also other things like use of the red missals, how to receive Communion and maybe a few other things that will help to answer some of the questions people often have the first time they come to a Traditional Latin Mass.


 Catholic Bishops Run Denver Marathon in October
Denver, Colo., Aug 29, 2010 / 06:58 pm (CNA).- Two Catholic bishops will take part in a Denver marathon in October. One is running to raise funds to pay off the $2.07 million debt on his diocese’s cathedral, while the other is joining local Catholics to increase prayers for and awareness of vocations to the priesthood and religious life.

Bishop of Springfield, Ill. Thomas J. Paprocki, a longtime marathon runner, has announced he is training for the Oct. 17 event. In a statement from the Diocese of Springfield, the 58-year-old prelate said he enjoys running and has participated in 16 marathons.

“This year I have decided to dedicate my marathon effort to help pay off the debt of the recent restoration of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Springfield,” said the bishop, who took over the diocese in June.

“Catholics in the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois can take rightful pride in our beautiful mother church, especially the many people who have already contributed generously to help pay the restoration costs,” he commented.

However, he explained that “unexpected expenses” had caused the debt and he would like to “retire this debt completely.”
He invited tax-deductible pledge donations and asked for prayer intentions for him to include while he is running and praying.

“As sacred Scripture says, ‘Let us run with endurance the race that is set before us’ (Hebrews 12:1). Your support will be greatly appreciated by me and all Catholics who gather and pray at our magnificent Cathedral,” Bishop Paprocki wrote.

The “Rock ‘n’ Roll Denver Marathon” website says that the time limit for the full marathon is six hours, a pace of 13:45 minutes per mile.

Auxiliary Bishop of Denver James Conley will also take part in the event.

Natalia Fletcher, executive assistant in the office of priestly vocations, responded to a CNA inquiry about the bishop’s participation. She reported that Bishop Conley and Bishop Paprocki attended graduate school together in Rome. Conley later told CNA in an e-mail that the two had run together in Rome, but not in a marathon.

The Denver auxiliary bishop will join archdiocesan vocations director Fr. Jim Crisman and two St. John Vianney seminarians as part of a relay team to increase support for and awareness of vocations. He will run 8.9 miles of the course and is following a training regimen of 15 miles per week.

In the past he has run in the Colfax 1/2 Marathon, the Chicago Marathon, the Rome Marathon, the Monte Carlo Marathon, the Pikes Peak Ascent and the Rome-Ostca 1/2 Marathon.

According to Fletcher, the archdiocese asks other runners and teams of runners to sign up for the event. Rather than seeking financial donations, the archdiocese asks that runners seek pledges of prayers for vocations to holy orders and to the consecrated life within the Archdiocese of Denver.

“There is a great need in the Church and world today for men and women who are willing to lay down their lives in service to others,” Fr. Crisman commented in a press release. “Please pray for an increase in vocations to Holy Orders and Consecrated Life, and pray for those already living these heroic vocations.”

He encouraged participants to form their teams as soon as possible so they have time to train and to pray.

The Office of Priestly Vocations has set up a section for the marathon in the “Run” section of its website http://www.priest4christ.com/.
