Regional Latin Mass Conference

February 26, 2010

Christ the King Chapel, Sarasota – , Florida’s first Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) Apostolate – will celebrate the first anniversary of the dedication of Christ the King Chapel over the weekend of April 16-18, 2010. As there also have been numerous expressions of the utility of a regional Latin Mass conference, particularly since Summorum Pontificum, we the Ecclesia Dei Society of SW Florida, under the leadership of our Chaplain, Rev. Fr. James Fryar, have decided to combine the two events. The celebration/conference will be as follows:

April 16 – Low Mass at 6:30 PM followed by a light refreshment then Compline;

April 17 – High Mass at 9:00 AM followed by day long conference on “The Traditional Catholic in 2010” guided by a FSSP speaker brought in for the event. A light snack will be available after the Angelus and we expect to have a no- host dinner with a speaker that evening at a nearby restaurant. Details on reservations for the dinner will be available soon.

April 18 – Sunday High Mass at 10:30 followed by the traditional doughnuts and coffee in the Chapel Hall and the opportunity to visit with our FSSP Priests and parishioners. There will also be a Low Mass at 9:00 AM.

While the event is open to all Catholics unequivocally loyal to the Magisterium and who have registered for the conference prior to March 30, this notice is only sent to Diocesan approved Latin Mass Parishes and communities. There is no fee to register but it must be done prior to March 30 and only by e-mail to me at stanvalerga (at) verizon (dot)net.

Interested parties are encouraged to register quickly as our Chapel and hall are not large, nearby hotel/motel accommodations may become tight, and registrations will be accepted on a first come only basis.

Christ the King’s website can be reached at or through which provides our Latin Mass live twice a day.

Please feel free to contact me at stanvalerga (at) verizon (dot) net with any questions or comments.
