The Necessaries.
I am a member of the Latin Mass Community of St. Anthony Parish, as well as a parishioner, in Wichita, Ks. While this blog may at times comment on, or allude to, the community and parish, Venite Missa Est! is by no means, in any way an official voice of any particular parish or the Diocese of Wichita. Venite Missa Est! is strictly a private layman's endeavor.

Good News for the Latin Mass Community!
Busy, busy...so busy! I have been so busy this last few weeks that I have not had time to share all that is going right with the Wichita Latin Mass Community! For starters several people pitched in to man, setup and support our booth at the Midwest Catholic Family Conference last weekend. We were met with nothing but enthusiasm by the public and the good news of Latin Masses starting up all over the midwest! No less then five people I personally spoke with had this type of good news from their respective dioceses in Texas, Missouri, Colorado and elsewhere.

Fr. Voelker, St. Mary Newton, has just today, celebrated the Feast of the Assumption in the Extraordinary Form of mass. It was also well met and attended...perhaps 50 people assisted (not an official count). Deo Gratias!

Finally I have heard that our respected and wise council had a positive meeting with Fr. Nguyen, new Pastor of St. Anthony, with a positive outlook on our strengths, weaknesses and possibilities. I'm speaking in generalities here since I'm not on the council and only reporting from what i have heard in casual conversation....but it sounded so positive! Thanks be to God!

Do you have news to share? Old time pictures of your baptism or confirmation? Stories of Catholic Grandparents sharing wisdom? Pictures of newborns? Share with me and I'll share with others!

We are and should strive to be: Community!

Benefit for the Discalced Carmelite Nuns 
The Discalced Carmelite Monastery of Divine Mercy and Our Lady of Guadalupe

As most of you know the Sisters live north east of Wichita outside of Park City and work and pray every day for us and world. Some might not know that the Wyants have a daughter at the monastery, Sister Teresita. This gives us Latin Mass goers somewhat of a familial relationship with the monastery. Won't you come out and support them by having dinner and maybe a dance or two with us next Saturday? If your lucky you'll get to see me in my fanciest dance moves (ha ha).

Carmelite fund raiser next Saturday: A benefit for the Discalced Carmelite nuns of our diocese will be held Aug. 22 at The Villa at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Andover, 123 N. Andover Road. The Gala Carmelita will start with dinner from 6 to 7:30 p.m followed by a dance until 11:30 p.m. with the Picante Band. There also will be a live and silent auction of unique and Carmelite-related as well as other items. Tickets $30. For more information or tickets, contact Nancy Wyant of the Latin Mass community at 316-573-7964 or Jerry Cornejo at 316-305-3051.
