The Holy Mass is celebrated at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs according to the traditional Latin rite used by the Catholic Church for hundreds of years.
As a newcomer to the traditional Latin Mass, we welcome you to the unchanged Catholic Faith. The priests and parishioners of Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Church reject the changes of Vatican II. They want to preserve the Roman Catholic Faith by maintaining everything which was taught and done by the Church prior to Vatican II. In order to receive the sacraments here, it is therefore necessary that you attend exclusively the traditional Latin Mass, and avoid the new Mass and reformed sacraments. We also invite you to take our booklet entitled The Traditional Latin Mass, which is very informative.
