Given the continued fruitful growth of the North American District of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, now numbering over 100 priests in Canada and the Unites States, it will be elevated to the higher administrative level of a Province on July 1st. A meeting of elected delegates follows until July 10th to discuss and decide policies and organization for this next stage of our development.
We ask for your prayers during this time of important deliberations.
Fr. Romanoski was elected to the provincial chapter and will be away for these dates. Please direct any ordinary pastoral questions to Fr. Dorsa, though Fr. Romanoski can be reached by phone or email as needed.
Fr. Heinricy FSSP, a classmate of Fr. Dorsa's and currently assigned to our apostolate in Kansas City, will be substituting for Fr. Romanoski while away.
A further reduction in seasonal masses at the Church of the Resurrection, Fort Myers, will move our Latin Mass to 12pm beginning Sunday, July 4.
We welcome Fr. Krager, who visited our apostolate in 2019 as a seminarian and was ordained a priest in 2020. He will be helping Fr. Dorsa this week while Fr. Romanoski is away.
There will be an additional mass at 4pm on Thursday, Feast of St. John the Baptist.
4:00 pm- low mass
5:15 pm- sung mass
Due to continued work on the floor of their main church St. Agnes will continue to need use of the chapel during the day for daly masses and other ceremonies, thus suspending adoration for another week. It will resume again on June 28 from 9am to 5pm.
Fr. Thu Truong FSSP, ordained on May 28th, 2021 in Lincoln, Nebraska, will be visiting our apostolate to offer a Solemn High Mass at St. William Catholic Church on Tuesday, June 8th at 4:00pm, accompanied by a dozen of our seminarians. He will impart his blessing before and after Mass for those who would like to receive it.
No adoration June 3-11; Return to one daily Mass for summer at 5:15; Additional 4pm on certain feast days
St. Agnes will suspend adoration in the chapel from June 3rd through 11th, due to floor polishing, resuming daily on June 13th from 9am-5pm.
As there are no longer restrictions on capacity in the chapel, and less faithful in attendance during the summer months, our daily mass will return to the 5:15pm time slot, with the 4:00pm slot being suspended starting June 7th. Adoration will continue in the chapel until 5pm when Benediction will be imparted Monday-Friday (when adoration resumes on the 13th).
We will have an additional 4pm mass on feast days to accomodate the larger numbers in attendance on those days, which are currently planned for:
June 11 (Fri), 24 (Thu), 29 (Tue),
July 2 (Fri),
Aug 6 (Fri).
Rev. Mr. Joel Pinto FSSP will be ordained a priest on June 11th, Feast of the Sacred Heart in his hometown FSSP apostolate in Guadalajara, Mexico, by His Eminence Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke. Fr. Romanoski will be in attendance at the ordination and away on vacation till late June.
Fr. Eric Krager FSSP, who visited our apostolate as a seminarian in 2019 and was ordained a priest in 2020 will assist Fr. Dorsa here while Fr. Romanoski is away.
Our former parishioner and cantor Miss Kaitlyn Walton, will receive the habit of Our Lady of Mt.

Please offer a prayer for Sister Mary Consolata on this important day who continues to pray for all of us at Corpus Christ Chapel.
Thanks be to God and your generosity towards Him, we met the 250k matching pledge challenge from Christmas to Easter. A more detailed breakdown by city of the quarterly giving will be given next week. Having reached our target goal for buying land, we are looking at concrete parcels of land for purchase to determine their suitability for our future parish home. Please continue to pray and financially support this intention. More details will be given as concrete steps advance.
