Houston Latin Mass Community Family Picnic and An Update on FSSP Plans for New Houston TLM Apostolate

Thanks to Mr. Jon Merrill, I have been able to share information about the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter's plans to establish a Traditional Latin Mass parish in the Houston area.  Most recently he sent me information on the Houston Latin Mass Community's family picnic, scheduled for Sunday, May 1, and a link to Fr. Van Vliet's letter with the latest information regarding the Fraternity's work toward establishing a new Houston apostolate.  I have copied the picnic information below.  An excerpt from Fr. Van Vliet's letter follows.  I have provided a link to the complete letter, which is quite detailed and includes bank account information for donations.

We invite your friends and family to join the Houston Latin Mass Community for our first Family Picnic on Sunday, May 1 from 11:00 a.m. - 3 p.m. at Seven Meadows Central Park, 23610 Seven Meadows Parkway, Katy, 77494.  Hot dogs and drinks will be provided; please bring a covered dish and dessert to share.  (See attachment for invitation.)  Please RSVP to Mollie Charba at or 281-392-6011 (Home) 281-220-7685 (Cell).   Call or e-mail if you have any questions.  We look forward to seeing you!

Dear Faithful of the Houston Area:

I am writing to announce that the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (the Fraternity) is planning to establish a new apostolate in the Houston area as early as this summer. His Eminence, Daniel Cardinal Di Nardo has given his permission to establish a parish in the Houston area staffed by the Fraternity. This is a great blessing since all the sacraments would be administered using the liturgical books of 1962. A beautiful 40 acres property is being donated for the purpose of establishing this Fraternity run parish and we are making the necessary arrangements for the title transfer. The land is located near the intersection of Fairbanks North Houston and Breen Road in the northwest quadrant of the city inside the beltway.   

Read the complete letter here.
