Welcome

At St. Benedict Traditional Roman Catholic Church, we celebrate only the traditional, pre-Vatican II, Latin Mass. The chapel is located on Highway 231 about 10 miles south of Huntsville, AL. We welcome everyone to worship Almighty God with us in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Click here for our theological position.


Announcements

DISPENSATION FROM FRIDAY ABSTINENCE
Prior to Vatican Council II, the practice of the Catholic bishops in the U.S., with the approval of Rome, was to dispense the faithful from meat abstinence the day after Thanksgiving. You are free to make use of this dispensation this coming Friday.

OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE
The faithful who devoutly visit an image of the Virgin Mother of God of Guadalupe exposed in some church or public oratory, on any of the five preceding Sundays before her feast (Dec. 12) can gain a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions, i.e. Confession, Communion, prayer for the intentions of the Church (one Our Father, Hail Mary & Glory be).

INDULGENCES
The official resource of the Catholic Church’s indulgences (remission of sins already forgiven) is the Raccolta. By all means obtain one, so that you can take advantage of this relatively simple way to lessen your time in Purgatory and that of the Suffering Souls in Purgatory (by giving Indulgences to them). Make sure, however, that it is a version approved before 1960.
