In July 2007, Pope Benedict XVI issued an Apostolic Letter to expand celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass worldwide. He wrote: “What earlier generations held as sacred remains sacred and great for us, too.” The Latin Mass has been offered at Queen of Peace Church every Sunday since. This Mass was described by the great Catholic writer, Father Frederick Faber, as “The Most Beautiful Thing This Side Of Heaven.” We hope and trust that you will find it so. We invite you to come back, and come often, to pray the beautiful Latin Mass with us, to pray as our forefathers have done for so many centuries, that you may find in this rich, transcendent liturgy a place of solace and true spiritual joy.
Celebrated in accordance with the expressed wishes of Pope Benedict XVI, with the official support of the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown and St. Vincent Archabbey.
