    It was the first time I’d been to St. Rose. What a beautiful and a very special accompaniment to a Solemn High Latin Mass. As people entered the church there were gasps at the beauty. Thank you to Fr. Michael Fowler, Pastor, for hosting a TLM (Traditional Latin Mass.)

    I never cease to be amazed at the (very) young boys being able to serve their part in the Sanctuary. No wonder the exposure they get to the priestly vocation bears fruit. It seems to me that they ‘grow’ on the spot into a role beyond their years!

    Of course Father Peter Van Lieshout, celebrant, again presided over a liturgy of incredible dignity and beauty. The Latin/English translation sheet was very helpful in ‘keeping up’ with the treasury of prayer for the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter.

    Fr. Matthew Walter’s Sermon was also riveting and raised our attention to how very much we need the Church. I hope it was recorded.
