Fr. Andrew Todd – First Solemn High Mass – September 6 at 10am

August 28th, 2014

Father Andrew Todd a member of the family of St. Patrick’s Church, was ordained as a priest of The Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest which is a Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical Right whose goal is the honor of God and the sanctification of priests in the service of the Church and souls. An integral part of the Institute’s charism is the use of the traditional Latin Liturgy of 1962 for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the other sacraments.
Newly ordained Father Todd will celebrate his first solemn high Mass in the Extraordinary Form at St. Patrick’s on Saturday, September 6, 2014 at 10:00 A.M.
Father Stanley Klores has extended an invitation to everyone, especially the Prayer Warriors, to be present at this most solemn but memorable Mass celebrated by Father Todd.
