The next Traditional Latin Mass, Sunday July 9, 2023

The Traditional Latin Mass celebrating Sixth Sunday after Pentecost will be held on July 9, 2023, at 3:00 pm at the old St. Paul’s Catholic Church, 810 15th Avenue South, Nampa, ID 83651.

Please note the change of address. We are no longer at the new St. Paul's Parish Church, but at the old Church which is part of St. Paul's Catholic School and near the parish office. It is on the corner of 8th St S and 15th Ave S.

Please park in the school yard. Gates will be opened by 1:30pm.

There will be food and drinks after Mass in the Hall under the Church. The entrance is to the right of the Church through the first gate and then through the glass doors. Please feel free to bring food and drinks to share.

We are looking for more singers to better support Sacred Polyphony. Ideally, we would like two or more voices per part.

Please come to the Mass, and encourage others to attend, and bring a friend!  

St. Joseph, pray for the increase of the Traditional Latin Mass in the Treasure Valley and the establishment of an FSSP Parish. We pray also for Fr Brady, Fr Vogel, and Bishop Christensen.

"What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred and great for us too, and it cannot be all of a sudden entirely forbidden or even considered harmful. It behooves all of us to preserve the riches which have developed in the Church’s faith and prayer, and to give them their proper place." - Summorum Pontificum, Pope Benedict XVI

"The ancient liturgy, with its poignant symbols and innumerable subtleties, is a prolonged courtship of the soul, enticing and drawing it onwards, leading it along a path to the mystical marriage, the wedding feast of heaven." Resurgent in the Midst of Crisis: Sacred Liturgy, the Traditional Latin Mass, and Renewal in the Church, Peter Kwasniewski

From Peter Kwasniewski' substack,

Making a big fuss over “nothing,” they say…

Sometimes our opponents say to us: “Why do you trads make such a big fuss over the TLM? Surely you could just go to any valid liturgy, it shouldn’t make a difference. You’re making an idol out of your preferred form of Mass!”

This objection makes about as much sense as saying to a man: “What’s the big deal with your wife? You could just take any woman, it shouldn’t make a difference.” Or to a parent: “Why are you so attached to your kids? There are lots of kids around. The state could supply you with more. Kids are kids.” Or to a friend: “Why are you so attached to your best friend? He’s just a guy, there are plenty of guys you can get to know!” Deep attachment, familiarity, association, companionship, intimacy—you can’t just throw these things off like a blanket or a jacket. The liturgy in all its concreteness, its givenness, forms and shapes us, as it is supposed to do; and it becomes a part of us deep down, a favored instrument and a mighty conduit for the work of Almighty God, who paints His masterpiece on the canvas of our souls with the brushes and paints of tradition—the chants and ceremonies, antiphons, readings, and prayers, feasts and fasts, symbols and silences.
