Rorate Caeli

Event: Pontifical Mass in Chicago

Earlier this year, Quo Vadis - the young adult group at St. John Cantius - applied for and received affiliation with Fœderatio Internationalis Juventutem.  The FIJ chartered Quo Vadis as Juventutem Chicago.

This month, on Wednesday the 24th, at 7:30 p.m., Bishop Joseph Perry will celebrate a Pontifical Mass at St. John Cantius in celebration of the affiliation with the FIJ.  Afterward there will be a reception for young adults in the parish basement.

As Rorate previously reported, Bishop Perry last celebrated a Mass for Juventutem Michigan and other young adults in Washington, D.C., in January 2013.  Many pictures over at Juventutem Michigan.

    God bless Juventutem Chicago and the Bishop Perry. With all the detritus around us it is making fertile ground here and there. We have to nurture and care for them well. Prayers, moral support and a few bucks now and then.

    Sorry. I forgot to add a World Juventutem Day would be far superior to any WYD, and you bet our youth will be receiving real Catechizing rather than pop-culture Christianity (if it can even be called Christianity).


  4. Great news. GOD BLESS Father Phillips. One of the true pioneers of the Restoration. Father Phillips was doing indult masses since the early 1990's, when it was "most uncool". Holy Mother Church needs many more like him. Many Many More.

    St. Francis, ora pro nobis.
