Date: January 2, 2018

Time: 6:00 pm

Location: St. Thomas Aquinas (St. Clare's Hall)

Attendance: 10 Regular Members

Guest Speaker: Deacon Ricky Wallace from the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter

Deacon Wallace was visiting us all the way from Nebraska! He is the grandson of our member Agnes Franzen and is soon to be ordained on May 26th, 2018. He stated that altar serving at the Latin Mass helped him in his discernment to become a priest. He has a great love for the Latin Mass and his order's charism is sanctification of priests through the Latin Mass.  He spoke of the importance of remembering we offer ourselves with Christ, we offer our hearts at every Mass and then bring Him out to the world to impact the world. He also added it is a good practice to mortify our senses because they can easily take us over. We should ask God for it and pray hard to help us with this. Please keep him in your prayers on May 26th!
