"It is being announced this weekend at Masses that there will be some changes regarding the Latin Mass and the continuing relationship between the parishes of St. Wenceslaus and Immaculate Conception. Please see the Archbishop's letter below. There are many details still to be worked out and we ask for your patience, prayers, and support as we move forward. We are very excited for the opportunity to continue to serve all the people of both parishes in this way."

THIS IS THE YEAR OF ST. JOSEPH IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. On the 150th anniversary of Blessed Pius IX declaring St. Joseph as Patron of the Catholic Church and on the feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, Joseph’s spouse, Pope Francis announced that this year would be the Year of St. Joseph.
This means there are opportunities to obtain a plenary indulgence throughout the year. One way is to pray special prayers to St. Joseph on Wednesday, which is the day traditionally dedicated to him.
We can receive a plenary indulgence when we complete a specified prayer or spiritual practice, done with the right disposition, and fulfill the necessary conditions, namely:
1) On that day, be in the state of grace (free from the guilt of mortal sin), and…
2) On that day (or 20 days before or after), confess to a priest, and be detached from sin, that is, desire to do better and avoid even the near occasion of sin, and…
3) On that day, worthily receive the Eucharist, preferably while participating in Holy Mass, or if that’s not possible, outside of Holy Mass, and…
4) On that day, pray an Our Father and a Hail Mary for the intentions of the Pope.
Beginning on Wednesday, January 20, and every Wednesday throughout the Year of St. Joseph, we will pray the Litany of St. Joseph before the 12:05 p.m. Mass at Immaculate Conception.
Daily Mass in the Extraordinary Form is offered at St. Wenceslaus every Monday evening at 6:30 p.m. and every Thursday morning at 7:00 a.m. at Immaculate Conception. Sunday Mass in the Extraordinary Form is offered at Immaculate Conception at 8:00 a.m.
