Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) at St. Paul’s, Nampa

Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) at St. Paul’s, Nampa

We want to extend our heartfelt appreciation  to all who attended the first Diocesan authorized TLM in the Treasure Valley on March 10th at the new St. Paul’s Parish in Nampa. There were 402 persons in attendance from all over the Treasure Valley. Your attendance indicated the spiritual need that many of the laity in our region have for the Traditional Latin Mass (Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite).

Thank you also to the members of the Schola. The music they provided was truly transcendent, as is befitting the Sacred Liturgy. We now have 28 responses for Altar Server training for the TLM. Thank you to all who responded.

Our appreciation goes out, also, to the many people behind the scenes whose prayers, volunteer time, and financial resources supported this effort to bring the TLM to our area. Most of all, we are grateful to Bishop Christensen for establishing the monthly TLM at St. Paul’s Church in Nampa, which will be celebrated on the second Sunday of every month, at 2:30 pm.

The next TLM is scheduled for Palm Sunday, April 14th, at 2:30 pm at the the new St. Paul’s Church in Nampa (510 W. Roosevelt).

If you know of friends/family who would like to attend, please extend an invitation to them. Additionally, if you would like to be added to our database to document the interest level for the TLM in the Treasure Valley and to receive informational emails, please go to: Click on the Sign Up tab, then click on the form, print and mail the

Una Voce Announces: A Monthly Traditional Latin Mass

The board of the Treasure Valley Latin Mass Society, St. Joseph Chapter of Una Voce America, is pleased to announce that Bishop Peter Christensen has responded to our request for a Traditional Latin Mass in the Treasure Valley. He has assigned Fr. Caleb Vogel, pastor of St. Paul Catholic Church in Nampa, to the ministry of providing a monthly Sunday Mass in the Extraordinary Form at the old St. Paul Church in Nampa. There is much preparation to be done, and Fr. Vogel hopes to begin offering the Mass in Lent — sometime in March.
Although the exact time for the monthly Mass has not been set, and further details await the promulgation of the official assignment letter by the Bishop, we are very pleased to bring you this announcement and are grateful to Bishop Christensen for his positive response to our request, and also very grateful to Fr. Vogel for his generous response, as well as St Joseph, patron of this Una Voce Chapter.
Please be aware that this ministry is limited to the monthly offering of a Traditional Latin Mass.  It does not include those items of a full parish life, such as the traditional sacraments for confession, baptism, nuptials, requiem Masses and the like.  Also be aware that this ministry has been assigned to Fr. Vogel alone, so he will be performing this ministry in addition to pastoring a large parish and serving as director of vocations. Please keep him and Bishop Christensen in your prayers.
Fr. Vogel has indicated that he would like help from the Treasure Valley Latin Mass Society with preparing the old St. Paul Church for this particular ministry, as well as obtaining necessary supplies.  Additional notices will be sent out as particular needs for time/talents/treasure are identified in the next few weeks.  In the meantime, if you wish to make a tax-deductible donation, it would be both helpful and deeply appreciated. You may send it to:
Treasure Valley Latin Mass Society, Inc.
C/o Mrs. Theresa Lester, O.P.
9875 W. Meadowlark Ct
Boise, ID 83704
Please join the board of the Treasure Valley Latin Mass Society in offering prayers and thanksgiving for this new step towards regularizing the Extraordinary Form of the Mass in the Treasure Valley, with special intercession for Bishop Christensen and Fr. Vogel.
Sancte Joseph, patrone s. ecclesiæ, ora pro nobis
