Run while you have the light of life, lest the darkness of death over take you. John 12:35


Please note, and share, that there is no Midnight Mass this year but rather a Solemn High Mass, the third mass of Christmas on Christmas day at 11:15.  Again: NO MIDNIGHT MASS this year.
...and now for the necessaries.
Please note: St. Anthony Catholic Church celebrates the Traditional Latin Mass (EFLR) in the Wichita diocese. 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.

 No Midnight Mass at St. Anthony

Please note, and share, that there is no Midnight Mass this year but rather a Solemn High Mass, the third mass of Christmas on Christmas day at 11:15. Again: NO MIDNIGHT MASS this year.

 Midnight Mass in the Extraordinary Form has been celebrated at St. Anthony as long as I can remember, or at the least since 2004 when I discovered the Latin Mass. There are many people who usually don't attend St. Anthony but reserve their worship at Christmas for this mass in particular. Please pass this information to anyone who may benefit.

This Christmas' Solemn High Mass consists of Fr Jirak as Celebrant, Fr Voelker as Deacon and Fr Reilley as Sub Deacon.

 Christmas Mass at St. Anthony Parking Issue

We are aware that parking for our Christmas Solemn High Mass at 11:15 could be a major problem. The English 9:30 mass and the Vietnamese 11:00 mass (held in the gymnasium) may leave us with very few parking choices. Our three priests need reserve spots naturally. Volunteers to look into this would be appreciated. The Vietnamese are expecting 1000 in attendance. The weather forecast allows for no moisture and temperatures in the high 40's. Attendance could be high.

So!!! Our suggestion is COME EARLY. Only after the 9:30 mass may we enter the church. A word to the wise is!

Thought You all Would Enjoy Hearing from an Old Serving Buddy

This email was passed on  from Sean J. Forristal. Sean and his father used to travel from Salina for Sunday mass at St. Anthony. Sean was a server.

"Awesome, you are going to have a Solemn High Mass for Christmas.  I wish I was there to be a part of it.  Please, pray for me at the Solemn High Mass, especially for my vocation; I am currently discerning a vocation to St. Louis Abbey in St. Louis.  Even though I have great love and respect for Clear Creek Abbey, I have a desire to teach, which is St. Louis Abbey's major apostolate.  There are two Benedictine priests and a nun on my mother's side that were connected to St. Benedict's Abbey in Atchinson, whom were teachers; thus, this abbey may continue my family's line of Benedictine educators.

Once again, thank you for your continued updates.  God bless you and your family, especially Fr. Bethel OSB!  Have a very merry and blessed Christmas!"

Your unworthy brother in Christ;
Sean J. Forristal
